Small Groups

Bethesda has approximately 30 active Small Groups that meet in a variety of locations. These gatherings provide an opportunity for genuine community to be experienced as we engage one another, grow together in discipleship, and impact our city in ways we couldn’t do alone. The topic of study and time of each group’s meeting will vary. We invite you to get connected today.
