Besides the numerous opportunities to be involved in our Mission and Outreach programs such as the Food Cupboard, Faith Café and Beaverton High School Homeless Youth (to name only a few), Bethel offers the adults in our community many opportunities for faith development, community and growth.


Conversation Class

Adult Conversation Class: A chance to gather Sundays from 9:00 AM-9:45 AM and discuss the scripture being used in the Worship service or another topic that corresponds with the sermon topics. In the past, this group has studied Compassionate Communication, discussed the various ballot measures and studied “We Make the Road by Walking” that was being used as the Lenten study book. Begin your Sunday worship experience by joining this fun, lively group of people.

Book Group

Adult Book Group: The Bethel Bookies read various books of interest and meet monthly to discuss those books. This is an open book group and people are encouraged to attend even if they didn’t get a chance to read the entire book.


Special Classes and Workshops: Every Fall and during Lent, special classes are held to deepen one’s faith. Whether it’s a book study, skill-building workshop or call to social justice, these classes offer an opportunity for faith development and community building. All are welcome.

Called to Care Ministry: A group of lay leaders who assist the pastor with the care of members who are hospitalized, homebound, or coping with other life-changing challenges. Their presence makes it possible for members to stay connected to the church at a time when they might feel isolated or alone. Through such service, team members become Jesus’ hands and feet in our community.

Called to Care

Prayer Ministry: No matter how large or small the need, Bethel has a team of people ready to pray with and for you. Are you called to join the prayer team? Please complete the form below.


Prayer Shawl Ministry: Bethel has a dedicated group of knitters who create prayer shawls which get distributed to Bethel congregants and friends for a variety of reasons... illness, bereavement, long-time service to the church, hard times, gratitude, etc. We don't have a specific list of requirements to become a prayer shawl recipient, and it's usually upon request or recommendation from Pastor David or someone in the ministry or congregation. If you are a knitter or would like to become a knitter, please complete the form to be contacted.
