Breakfast & Bible Study | Tuesdays | 8:00 a.m. | Guild Room
Breakfast & Bible Study is open to all adults and is a chance to dig deeper into one book of the bible at a time. Greg Knight will lead this group discussion of scripture. We’re not a group looking for bible experts, just people who are curious about how the stories from the bible echo in our lives today. And we occasionally have bacon. You can bring your own bible or use one of ours. This is a great way to study scripture, engage in fellowship with Bethesda parishioners, and foster a spirit of life-long learning in community.
Girls of Grace | Wednesdays | 10:15 a.m. | Guild Room
This ladies’ bible study meets in the Guild Room Wednesday mornings, 10:00 to 11:30 a.m., during the academic year, with breaks that coincide with school vacations. Participants are primarily ladies with school-age families. We use video-based topical studies with ample time for group discussion — but we also change up our format from time to time! Themes we’ve covered in the past: God’s Grace, Using Words Wisely, The Miracles of Jesus; Ruth, Philippians, “Bible 101.”
All levels of biblical literacy are welcome. We participate in at least two outreach events every year, such as the Easter Homebound Luncheon and Angel Tree project.
Faith in Action | First Monday of the Month | 7:00 p.m.
Faith in Action is a group for adults who want to learn by doing. If you are interested in learning more about the love and service of Christ by working alongside like-minded adults on service projects, mission trips, or pilgrimage experiences, then this group is for you. Each month we will meet to discern what God is calling our group to do, use our various spiritual gifts to execute our group’s vision for ministry, and take time to reflect on how God is at work in our action. We will meet on the first Monday of each month at local bars, cafes, and restaurants in the West Palm Beach community, emphasizing that the work of this group lives outside the walls of our church. For more information about Faith in Action please contact Greg Knight at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Saturday Stitchers | First & Third Saturdays of the Month | 10:00 a.m. | Library
Saturday Stitchers are now meeting in the BBTS Library on the first and third Saturday of the month at 10:00 a.m. We invite anyone to bring needlework and join in the fellowship or bring a project you want to learn. Current members may assist with knitting, crochet, needlepoint, counted cross stitch, and embroidery, among others. If any child aged 10-up has a project, we are available to teach the craft.
