The Men’s Ministry at Bethany is designed to encourage and exhort men to be leaders in their home, church, and community. Various ministries, classes, Bible studies, and small groups are regularly offered for this purpose of showing men how to mature and lead effectively. Men are also routinely being discipled and mentored in the context of their leadership development including, but not limited to, the training needed to serve the church in the offices of deacon and elder. Retreats, conferences, and breakfast fellowships are also structured into the overall strategy for coming alongside men in order to help them grow spiritually.

Fear is one of the strongest human emotions, and it is one that often baffles Christians.
“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge.” —Proverbs 1:7
In the Bible the picture can seem equally confusing: Is fear a good thing or a bad thing? And what does it mean to “fear the Lord”?
In Rejoice and Tremble, Michael Reeves clears the clouds of confusion and shows that the fear of the Lord is not a negative thing at all, but an intensely delighted wondering at God, our Creator and Redeemer.

Our current study is Knowing God. J. I. Packer's Knowing God has become a classic of the Christian faith. Why? While it gives us information about God with clarity and grace, it does much more---it aids us in actually knowing him, in building our relationship with him, and helps draw us closer to him in love and worship.
For more information about this study, contact the church office: 805-495-7029.
Wednesdays | 6:00 am | Bethany Bible Church, Room 205
Zoom video conferencing also available upon request.
