Adult Education Forums
Bethel commits itself to offering a vital education program for adults. 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 on Sundays at 10:30 am. Besides the ones listed, special large group evening Adult Forums are often held at special times of the year. Come whenever you can!
You are also encouraged to watch past sessions videos of our adult education classes.
