Forming Spiritually - Sunday Bible Class for Women

The Good & Beautiful Community - Following the Spirit, Extending Grace, Demonstrating Love 

Starting Sunday, April 7 at 10:45AM in Bethany’s School Library 

Good and Beautiful Community is based on the second part of the Greatest Commandment: “Loving our neighbor as ourselves.”  Together we will draw near to God in Word, prayer and soul training exercises that transform us from the inside out as the Holy Spirit teaches us to “Live and move and have our being in Him.” (Acts 17:28).  “For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Eph. 2:10  

**Sign up in Friendship Square on Sundays, March 24 & 31**

For further information, contact Mary Kay Esswein through the Church Office.



SUNDAY Morning & Afternoon: 

Making "Community Connections" through Prayer:  We are taking a break until further notice.  This group normally meets 7:30-7:55AM every Sunday in the Conference Room.  When we begin to meet again, you are invited to drop in any Sunday and pray silently or from a prayer guide. God is powerful and mighty. He asks that we come to Him with our requests.  FYI all who worship and all who serve in worship service are prayed for as well.  - Pre-service Prayer Group


Grief Share Series: Started Sunday, January 14, 2024 and Continues... from 1:30 to 3:00PM in the Conference Room off the church parking lot. Karl Fink will lead the group. If you are experiencing grief in any way, shape, or form, or if your grief has been buried for quite some time, please make an effort to attend this series. There’s a nominal fee for the materials, which will be discussed at the first meeting. Griefshare is a 13-week video-based series where we watch and discuss, as people feel comfortable. If you have questions or concerns, contact Karl at or call his office at 562.421.4711 extension 19. God’s Peace.
