Bethel Grace is invited to gather in devoted, ongoing groups of  8-15
people to deepen friendships, contemplate and apply biblical truths, 
as well as minister to one another’s needs and serve the mission of Jesus. 
 
Most groups meet twice per month and are based on the
Sunday morning sermon study and application questions. 

Groups run September through May and break for the summer months.

Home Fellowship Groups
Each group meets in a host home on a schedule set by the group members.  Most groups meet twice a month on a weeknight or Sunday afternoon. Groups begin in late September and will meet through May or June before taking a Summer sabbatical.

What can you expect at a Home Fellowship Group Meeting?
A typical meeting begins with a time to chat and catch up over some coffee and treats.  This is followed by time in God’s Word.  Most groups use discussion questions and applications based on the previous Sunday’s sermon. (Discussion Question sheets are available in the church foyer and online.) The evening ends with a time to share prayer requests, encourage one another, and lift each other up in prayer. The hope for each group is that biblical community will occur in a sincere, genuine, life-giving way.

Theological Basis for Small Group Ministry
This document lays out biblical reasons why small group fellowship gatherings are vital to New Testament Christianity.  It also directs you to two of Pastor Jeff's sermons teaching why we've laid out the ministry of God's Word at Bethel Grace the way we have.
