Adult Ministries

We believe that Faith Formation/Christian Education, Fellowship, and Service are lifelong ventures that include times for study, times for fun, and times for service. Through these activities we seek to find a right relationship with God, with each other, and with our community.
 
Sunday Morning Discussion
 
Our “Sunday Morning Discussion” is a group that studies scriptures, social issues, and current events to help us find our individual place in our church and God’s world. This class meets each Sunday morning at 9:30 a.m.  Currently we are having a lectionary based Epiphany Study.  Then, in February we will continue with Part 2 of Living the Questions 2.0, An Introduction to Progressive Christianity.
 
Hospitality
 
Every Sunday from 9:30 a.m. until after the Sunday morning worship service we have coffee, etc. available in Fellowship Hall. This is an informal opportunity to chat with friends, meet new folks, talk with the Pastor, and see what’s new at Bethany.
 
Embracing Our Community
 
Serving our community is at the heart of our mission. We sponsor church wide activities such as the annual Community Yard Sale/Church Bake Sale, Blood Drives, and our annual Community Fun Festival.
 
Adult Studies
 
Our study groups meet at various times throughout the year, usually on Monday evenings at 6:30 p.m. Currently, the group is studying 2Samuel.   The study is led by Pastor Colleen and lay persons.  It was designed to challenge the group to listen for God’s Still Speaking voice in the midst of both the Old and New Testaments and relate it to today’s church. There is always room for more voices in the group.  Please check with the church office at 828-464-5194 for the latest schedule.
 
Faith Formation Specials
    
 
Special faith formation event are offered.  Bethany strives to be a relevant church in today's world.
 
How do we respond to a new century in which society is dramatically different from the one in which many of us and our church wish to be and do church? 
 
We discovered that what we are seeing may be the end of American Christendom. This is not the end of Christianity, but it may be a new beginning.
 
There is not only change occurring, but opportunity as well.
