True Spirituality: Becoming a Romans 12 Christian (Chip Ingram)

12 sessions; book is $12
Christians today live in a world that is activity-heavy and relationship-light  The result is spiritual emptiness.  If you’re ready to move from “in” to “all in” than you’re ready to become a Romans 12 Christian.  The next steps of your journey toward true spirituality start here.

Tuesdays (6 p.m.-8 p.m.) Room B

July 9-August 6

Breathe (Pricilla Shirer)

5 sessions; book is $10
With a jam-packed life, what’s missing is space – space for God to speak, room for you to hear.  It’s time to set aside the activities and busyness that swallows up rest and peace.  It’s time for us to breathe and build margin into our lives for God.

For more information, contact email Stephani or call 701.232.4476.

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

New groups starting Fall 2019. Watch here for more information.

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.


It would be helpful to know if you plan to attend a group before you arrive. Please email Stephani at stephanikarges@bethelfc.com or call her at 701.232.4476 to let her know which group you plan to attend.
