Come See Jesus

Bethel Women is launching two 6-week studies for women beginning Tuesday, April 20.

Let It Go

Tuesdays, 9 a.m.-11 a.m. via Zoom. Led by Marlene Sahr. Starts April 20.
Women are wired to control life’s details. Let. It. Go., a six-session video-based study from author and popular speaker Karen Ehman, gives women practical, biblically based steps for letting go of the need to control, dictate, and even manipulate the people and situations around them, and instead, trust that God has their best interests in mind.

Move On: When Mercy Meets Your Mess

Tuesdays, 9 a.m.-11 a.m. in Room 112. Led by Stephani Karges. Starts April 20.
Life is messy—but God is the solution to clean it up! Courtney reveals how equal parts of his grace and mercy will remove any of sin’s stains—including Christian snobbery, broken dreams, shame, legalism, the need for approval, and modern-day idols. Learn to let go of the past and move on to God’s freedom!

Books are available for $10. To register for either class, contact stephanikarges@bethelfc.com.

Connection: A Counseling Group for Women

Ladies, are you longing for connection? You are not alone! In God’s goodness, He created us to live in a relationship with Him and each other. Unfortunately, this can be a challenge, and sometimes even messy. Bethel Counseling invites you to join us for Connection: A Counseling Group for Women. Connection is a safe space for us, together, to experience true healing in Christ. We will focus on learning how to build intimate, healing connections with others through compassionate and authentic relationships.

Tuesdays March 2 – April 20, 6:30 p.m.– 8 p.m.

  • 2 Groups: 1 @ Bethel Church & 1 Online
  • Connecting by Larry Crabb (Book), available at the Bethel Church office for $10

Forgiven and Set Free

Post-Abortive Group

Regret abortion in your past? You are not alone. It is estimated that 1 in 4 American women will experience abortion at least once by age 45. Many are sitting in churches each week – fearful that their secret will be discovered and wondering if God can really forgive them. There is hope and healing available. Forgiven and Set Free Ministry at Bethel Church offers Biblical support and encouragement in fellowship with other post-abortive Christian women who have been freed from the prison of fear, shame and isolation. Confidential inquiries can be sent to forgivenandsetfree@bethelfc.com.

Moms, join us this summer for weekly park play dates on Tuesdays from 10 a.m.-12 p.m.! For locations, please email amyhashbarger@bethelfc.com.

June 8 – August 17 ( OFF July 6)

FLOURISH: A Mentoring Journey is a grace-filled community of women known for making disciples who LOVE God passionately, LOVE Others intentionally and SERVE the World sacrificially.  The heart of FLOURISH is to see the women of Bethel Church be firmly rooted in Jesus and the living Word of God.  We believe a mentoring relationship between an older and younger woman can be rich soil for such growth.  FLOURISH will connect women in a curriculum-based mentoring relationship to encourage and challenge one another in their walk with Jesus.
