Sunday Equipping Hour ministries

Sunday Mornings at 9:00 am

  • Elements of counseling & Discipleship

     God wants us to face all of life from His perspective and in turn, to be able to effectively help others in their spiritual walk. This study is designed for:


    Personal Growth     Tackling Specific Life Issues


    Discipling Others     Developing Biblical Counseling Skills


    Part 2 of this course is entitled "Handling Emotions" and meets through October 27th. We'll build upon the foundation set in Part 1, "How Change Happens," and apply those principles to issues such as anger, forgiveness, and reconciliation. The materials are $10 (folder, printing cost) and optional books are available for purchase online.


     Please contact Pastor Chris Bruynzeel at chris@bethanyto.org as to whether or not you will attend. It help us know the number of notes to print.

  • deceptive & false teachings

    Beginning Sunday, September 15, at 9:00 am, John Saltee will begin his teaching series on cults (Mormons, J.W’s, Christian Science) as well as New Age Spiritualism and the major world religions. John sat under the teaching of Walter Martin, who was internationally known as an expert on cults and false religions.


    You need only bring your Bible and pencil or pen as handouts will be provided as well as Scripture references that these false systems violate. Join us in room 205.


  • fundamentals of the faith

    The Fundamentals of the Faith (FOF) class covers thirteen lessons blending basic biblical truths with personal obedience and service. Topics range from the character of God to church participation, so it's an ideal study for new believers or a helpful review and fresh encouragement for even the most seasoned saints. The next FOF study begins soon and will be led by Patrick LaCanfora.

  • family hour - parents & children

    Parents and children are welcomed and encouraged to praise God together through fun worship songs. We will also have a short Bible lesson followed by Family Table Time. The Family Table Time is designed to facilitate family discussions that reinforce important biblical truths from the lesson using thought provoking and creative learning activities. We also encourage each family to use the Generations of Grace Companion Family Devotional Booklet during the week ($10). The Devotional Booklet has daily passages and discussion questions to help the father/parents disciple their children at home daily by both reviewing and going in-depth on the lesson and bible passages taught the prior Sunday.
