Began January 25, 2019


Defined is a new bible study for young women (graduated high school and onward).
Please join every other Friday (starting January 25) at 6:30 p.m. in Room B. This group is designed to build relationships with other women of this age and in similar life circumstances like figuring out your major, just graduated college, stepping into marriage etc. This is a mentor based group with talks and testimony from women at the church who have “been there”.  Contact Stephani at stephanikarges@bethelfc.com for more details.

Women of the Word groups are 5 to 7 women who gather weekly to study God’s Word and encourage each other toward spiritual maturity. Women will be given tools for daily study of Bible passages and then gather together weekly to discuss what they learned, pray for each other, and encourage one another in their walk with the LORD.

Joining a group

  • Tuesday, 9 a.m. @ Bethel Church Room A, James
  • Tuesday 6:30 p.m. @ 2702 Wheatland Drive, Fargo, Philippians
  • Sunday, 4 p.m. @ Bethel Church Room C, James

What to Expect

Groups will consist of five to seven women, committed to meeting weekly to share what they have discovered in their daily bible study. A reading and journaling plan will guide group members through a specific book of the Bible. Each day, women will read a portion of Scripture and explore truths about God, truths about people, find the main idea of the passage, connections to the Gospel, and how to apply the passage personally.
