Core Classes

CONNECT CLASS – Welcome to Bethel Life

connectWHEN & WHERE: Sundays at 9:30 am in Room 212 (6 weeks, August 6 - Sept 10)
TEACHER: Pastor Wayne Smith
Whether you’ve been around churches all your life, or are just checking it out for the first time, this class is the right place to find out what you need to know about Bethel Church. The goals for our time together are simple:

  • What it means to be a member of God’s family, and
  • What it means to be a member of Bethel Church


MULTIPLY CLASS - Making Disciples of Christ

WHEN & WHERE: Room 204 (9 weeks, Oct 22 - Dec 17)
TEACHER: Dr. Paul Shockley (Adult Pastor)
As believers in Christ we are commanded to make disciples. But what does disciple-making actually look like, especially in a culture that is now aptly described as being post-Christian? In this fourth and last core class in the Bethel Strategy series we will learn how to reach people where they are and take them where they need to be (Jude 3). Apologetics, biblical doctrine, evangelism, relational discipleship, spiritual life, and worldview thinking will be emphasized.

Equipping Classes (Fall)


WHEN & WHERE: Sundays, 9:30 am in Room 202 (16 weeks, Sept 3 - Dec 17)
TEACHER: Julian Solis
From a bird’s eye perspective, we will offer a biblical survey of Hebrews, James, 1 Peter, 2 Peter, 1 John, 2 John, 3 John, Jude, & Revelation. This is a great study for those who are new to the faith or those who are eager to grasp the overall message and themes of the Scriptures.


growWHEN & WHERE: Sundays at 9:30 am in Room 203 (16 weeks, Sept 3- Dec 17)
TEACHER: Frank Jones
The first four chapters of Matthew form a seamless continuation of the Bible of Matthew’s day (we call it The Old Testament). These chapters contain at least ten quotations from the Old Testament, showing vividly that this was indeed the beginning of the fulfillment of God’s promises to Israel (and, thus, to the human race), not to be completed finally until the last words of the book of Revelation.


WHEN & WHERE: Sundays at 9:30 am in Room 204 (7 weeks, Sept 3 - Oct 15)
TEACHERS: John Brickner
In this seven-week study, we will be introduced to some of the most significant insights of C. S. Lewis and their applicability to the Christian experience, especially in this post-Christian society. We will look at a variety of Lewis’ works, looking to be encouraged and challenged in ways that will not only generate a greater vision for God, but also a richer understanding how to love people where we live.


WHEN & WHERE: Sundays at 9:30 am in Room 207 (16 weeks, Sept 3 - Dec 17)
TEACHERS: Scott (Elder) & Tori Schroer
This course is designed for singles, engaged couples, and young marrieds.  We will focus on relevant and practical issues that are pertinent to building healthy relationships that honor God and bring about your very best such as identifying needs of the opposite sex, oneness, communication, conflict, roles of men and women, finances, children, in-laws, and forgiveness. No class on Sept. 24, Nov. 26, and Dec. 10.


WHEN & WHERE: Sundays, 9:30 am in Room 208 (16 weeks, Sept 3 - Dec 17)
TEACHER: Dr. Dwain Camp (Elder) & Jay Campbell
How do we know the Bible is reliable? What is sin and where did it come from? How is Jesus fully God and fully man? What are spiritual gifts?  When and how will Christ return? If you have pondered these questions and others like them, then “systematic theology” is certainly a meaningful and important area of study for you. We will cover a chapter each week or Wayne Grudem’s Bible Doctrine.  Prepare for class each week by reading the lesson and come ready to discuss the teachings of God’s eternal word.  Bring your questions and we will have a great time learning together.


growWHEN & WHERE: Sundays at 9:30 am in Room 210 (16 weeks, Sept 3 - Dec 17)
TEACHER: Clay Miles (Elder) & Don Currans
Do you understand how to best help people with a particular struggle they are experiencing? This course is designed to equip leaders who are investing in the lives of others, whether one-on-one, community group gatherings, or small group formats. You be equipped with shepherding skills to best prepare you for those who have a counseling need.  This course is required for future community group leaders and is highly encouraged for all leaders and teachers involved in any small group ministry format at church, neighborhood, work, or any type of educational format.

Acompáñenos para un estudio expositivo de la carta de hebreos, donde no sólo llegaremos a comprender la preeminencia del Señor Jesucristo en Su deidad y su ministerio sacerdotal como un cumplimiento de la teología del Antiguo Testamento, sino que también aprenderemos cómo aplicar las grandes verdades espirituales y el servicio cristiano.
