Small group involvement is one of our main strategies to instruct, counsel and mobilize our church. It is our desire for as many as possible to be in a smaller community of people who are committed to helping each other grow in Christian maturity and to spreading the gospel into every sphere of life in our Twin Cities. If you consider Bethlehem your church home, we strongly encourage you to find a group near you and get connected.
