As iron sharpens iron, so one Person sharpens another.

Proverbs 27:17

Church is more than what happens on Sunday morning.

We desire to see people go deeper with God and others throughout the week.  This happens when we move from rows (Sundays) to circles (groups).  At Bethesda there are a variety of groups that meet during the week:

- Men's Group
- Women's Group
- Bible Studies
- Prayer Groups

If you are interested in joining (or starting) a group, please contact us below.
