In-Touch Women’s Ministries

We know as unique as we are as women, so are our needs. Living in today’s secular society poses many challenges to our ways of thinking, responding and reaching out to others. Bethany’s Women’s Ministry, under the name In Touch, represents the challenge to keep us in tune with God, with one another and with what is going on in our own lives.

Fusion Forums
Church is much more than attending a service. It is about exploring Biblical truths and growing in faith. It is about living differently and making a difference. It is about building a relationship and connection with God and others. The Fusion Forum Group provides a great informal setting outside the larger church context to meet and grow with others on this same life journey. We welcome you to contact and visit one of our home groups where you will find there is a place for you!
