Bethel commits itself to offering a vital education program for adults. There are many offerings during each week so as to fit the schedule of most people. We believe that God’s Word is active and alive, and we desire that more people would come to know Jesus in a deeper way through our programming.
We invite members and visitors to consider attending any of the following regular offerings. Besides the ones listed, special large group evening Adult Forums are often held at special times of the year. Come whenever you can!
