Small Groups

Jesus calls us to go out and make disciples.

Smaller groups foster close relationships and integral community. The small group atmosphere is ready-made for building friendships. People talk more in smaller groups of people and are quicker to recognize needs and help meet those needs. The relationships formed within small groups form a strong fabric within a church and will endure and strengthen over time.

A new initiative has started at Bethlehem. Strengthened by our love for all God’s creation and recognizing the urgency to act, a social justice initiative committee has been established to work for our goal to advance positive change in our church, our community, and our world.
