The goal of joining a group is to grow in your walk with Jesus around people that can support and encourage you. Christian community is crucial to deepening your faith, and we love helping people get connected.
There are three different ways to get connected into community at Bethany: adult Sunday school, Small Groups, and Bible Studies. In each one, you can expect a focus on prayer, proclamation of God’s Word, personal discipleship, purposeful service in the church.
Adult Sunday School
Small GroupsSmall Groups meet in homes throughout the week to worship and be encouraged together. Small Groups meet weekly, bi-weekly or even monthly. The discussions center around Sunday sermons, so if you’ve come to worship, you are ready to join the conversation.
Bible StudiesBible Studies meet onsite at the church and around the Peoria area for men or women. Some gather in the morning, afternoon, or evening, and focus on studying God’s Word through a book together or other topical curriculum.
Which should I choose?
The good news is, these aren’t exclusive – joining one doesn’t prevent you from getting involved in any other ministry. We encourage everyone to start by simply attending weekly worship services, and then to join whichever ministry fits your family’s schedule.
