Community Beyond Services
We encourage everyone who is part of our Bethel church family to build community, receive ministry, and be equipped beyond just our weekend services. Bethel offers a number of opportunities for adults to get connected with others and grow spiritually.
Whether you’re new to Bethel or have been attending for years, it’s always possible to connect on a deeper level. Connect Groups help provide an intentional time and space to share life with others from the broader Bethel Community. Focused on a central theme each year and giving us an opportunity to move together toward living out what we believe, Connect Groups are an excellent place to get planted and continue your spiritual growth.
What does a typical Connect Group include?
Not every Connect Group is the same, but they will all include some variation of the following 3 elements:
- We eat. It may be a full meal or as simple as sharing a cup of coffee, but there is an element of communing together over food or drink.
- We connect. Building relationships is the most basic and important part of Connect Groups. It’s what they’re designed for. These times of connection help us share our lives, thoughts, and ideas as we seek to grow closer to God and one another.
- We pray. It may be a brief blessing as you leave or an extended time of ministry to each other or someone else, but we want to invite God to move in power every time we gather.
When do Connect Groups happen?
Connect Groups typically run during the fall and spring, then we take a break for the summer months. The next set of Connect Groups will be launching at the beginning of March. Check back soon for sign-ups!
We would like to thank you for visiting our website and for your prayerful consideration of financial giving to Bethel Cleveland through your tithes and offerings.
One of the best ways to get connected and become an active part of our local church family is to join a volunteer team.
