Life Is Better Together

Grow Deeper In Faith And Fellowship.
Church isn't an event to attend - it's a place to belong. We need each other to get through this journey, because we can do more, be more, and endure more when we're walking through life together.

Your Circle Matters

New Bethel has created spaces where Heaven and Earth meet to move you toward the goodness of God. Moving towards Christ-likeness happens in circles. Circles provide prayer, belief, clarity, power, discipleship, and fellowship. As you have chosen to grow in Christ – your circle matters!

Every season of life is better together. Sharing your life with other married couples takes humility and vulnerability to another level. But what you gain is invaluable, when we rub lives together with our spouse and others.

Coed Groups

In Coed Groups, men and women discover what it’s like to be known and to belong to the family of believers. They learn and fellowship together in a safe environment.

Men’s Groups

God never intended for man to live in isolation. Our Men’s Groups offer a safe space to share, where clarity and purpose is found within an engaging community. No matter what stage of life you’re in, a Men’s Group will renew your hunger for God and help you leave a legacy.

Women’s Groups

In Women’s Groups, ladies connect on a deeper level. As women discover greater intimacy in their relationships with God and each other, they experience the delight of life-giving friendship. Women’s Groups provide grace and encouragement for every age and stage of life.

Shaw Community Life Group

The Shaw Community Life Group is a coed group that pursues faith in community as well as the consideration of their geographic community. The men and women of Shaw will grow in faith while valuing issues concerning the community.

International Group

New Bethel family and friends extend beyond the United States. The International Group bridges the gap for those around the world. This community provides a safe space to manage the stresses of living in another country and remaining connected to one’s faith.

Lead a Group

Jesus compared leading to shepherding. Shepherds know the sheep in their care. A good shepherd guides his flock with love and kindness, pursuing each one individually while caring for the flock as a whole. This is what it’s like to lead a Group.

You’ll find support in deciding to lead a group.  We’ll  provide facilitation training, regular leadership meetings,support from leadership and lessons to guide your discussion during Life Group.

If you have a group of friends you’d like to pursue God with, we can get you started. Or we’ll certainly build a group for you to lead.

Create Real Relationship at New Bethel

Deepen your faith

Admit it. Sometimes we just don’t have the energy, or the time, or even the interest to be intentional about exercising our faith. We long for an authentic, connected relationship with God but just can’t seem to take the necessary steps. Life Groups provide the consistent opportunities and encouragement you need to focus on your faith.

Life groups help you engage your faith, make a difference together in our world, and find real purpose in living every day. Serving others is more fun when you do it together.
