Adult discipleship takes many forms at Bethel. In each of the varied offerings, faith and understanding are deepened as individuals explore what it means to be a faithful Christian. On Sunday mornings you will find bible-studies, forums on current issues, art installations, and invitations to various small groups. We offer a more intensive immersion in the Bible through the Bethel Series (this year, classes will be held on Saturday mornings). We also have a rich library of spiritual and theological resources open to all.
Feed and Read
Feed and Read meets once a month to discuss books of all types – both fiction and non-fiction, serious and not too serious, recent and older. We meet on a Monday starting at noon.
Men’s Friday Book Study
Men’s Friday Book Study meets each Friday morning at 7-8am for fellowship, a cup of coffee, and lively discussion. This group meets September – June. The group reads a book of their own choosing and studies it at their own pace. New men always welcome to join! Contact: Larry Larrabee at firstname.lastname@example.org
Adult Bible Study
The Narrative Lectionary is a plan that takes you through the Bible, story by story. Developed by a Lutheran Pastor, this plan keeps you centered on God’s story each week. We will read and study a story each week, following this plan. Bibles welcome but not necessary. Text will be provided each week. Led by Mimi Troutman
Family Conversations is an opportunity to connect with other people at Bethel with a shared experience of family. We meet most Sundays during the education hour upstairs in the hallway outside the choir loft. We have informal conversations about everything from day to day routines in our lives to current events and how we talk about them with our families. About once a month we have a speaker join us about a specific topic. For example, in 2017-2018 we had Megan Thornburgh with Gentle Parenting join us a few times to discuss Parenting and Screen Time. We have also enjoyed conversations with Bethel pastors as the speakers. The broad term family encompasses everyone – we hope you will join us for informal conversations!
Bhutanese Bible Study Class
This group meets every week on Sunday mornings.
