Community groups and classes are a great way to meet other people and grow in your faith.  Our groups meet at various times and places.  Some groups/classes are more age specific and others are mixed-generation.  Each group/class has its own unique personality.
These groups are a great entry point into Bethesda for those who haven’t been to church in a while and those who are not familiar with church services.
We have provided a brief description of each group, but to learn more call or email.  We would love to hear from you.
