Opportunities for Growth and Service
The Women’s Ministry at Bethel exists to fulfill the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20). It evangelizes, equips, and edifies women so they may know Christ as their Savior and Lord and serve Him in the home, the church, and the world.
“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20

The last Saturday of the month is the day to increase your knowledge of practical life skills. Come for as many hours as you choose to work on projects among companions who readily share their knowledge. A devotional is offered around lunchtime; bring your own sack lunch. Formal teaching on life skills is offered two to three times a year. Watch the Women Teaching Women page or the bulletin for information on specific topics and dates.
Contact Marlene Leach (920-884-9346) for further information.
As followers of Jesus Christ, older women are called to teach the younger women what is good. According to Titus 2 and Proverbs 31, “good” includes issues concerning relationships, marriage, homemaking, parenting, character virtues, and wisdom for daily life. We believe natural mentoring & discipleship relationships will flow out of fellowship around the Word of God, through serving alongside other like-minded women, and as women live out the Titus 2 mandate and the Great Commission.
Natural mentoring relationships are best accomplished by utilizing resources already in place: community groups, small group Bible studies, and being involved in areas of service. This will place women in the community and lead to natural mentoring relationships based upon personality and need.
For women desiring more formal, focused attention in a specific area, Titus 2 mentoring with a mature, Biblically equipped woman for instruction for a set period of time is also available. Contact Cinda Kult (920-360-6181) for help in arranging a mentoring relationship.
Special events give women extended time with one another and are scheduled throughout the year on topics beneficial for spiritual growth. These events are announced in the bulletin.
Contact Jen Servais (920-465-3332) for further information.
