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.

Small Group in a Box – February 2019

This Feb, we are launching another Small Group in a Box, a discipleship initiative in connection with our 100 Sermon Series as we talk a look at what it means to GROW deeper in your faith..  We are looking for people to H.O.S.T a small group.  To H.O.S.T, you just need to Have a heart for people, Open your home to a group of friends, Serve a snack, and Turn on the DVD.  Inside the box will be everything you need, such as a Leader’s Guide, Participant’s Guide, discussion cards, plus other resources to help you host with confidence.

We are encouraging current small groups, as well as new groups, to use one of three studies from Rightnowmedia.org: (Click link below)

1). The Book of Colossians by Louie Giglio

2). The Gospel of John Part One by Dr. Tony Evans

3). Fear and Faith by Trillia Newbell

Interested?  Come visit the Small Group Table in the foyer after the service and chat with Ralph Cann, our Small Group Director, or a member of the Small Group Lead Team.  You can also email Ralph at ralphcann@gmail.com or our Connections Pastor, Rob at rlodge@bethesda.ca, or simply fill out the Small Group Interest form below and indicate that you are interested in hosting a group in the message box at the bottom of the form and we will follow up with you as soon as we can.

We are excited for this fall as we take the next step in our faith and GROW.
