Women's Ministry


See below for all of our opportunities for women!

I Thessalonians 2:8 "So being affectionately desirous of you, we were ready to share with you not only the gospel of God but also our own selves, because you had become very dear to us."

beREAL is a ministry to all adult* women. Regardless of age or stage of life this ministry provides an opportunity to develop gospel-centered real relationships with other women in the church. We plan to meet once a month, September through April on the first Tuesday evening of the month at Bethany Community Church, Room 101.  Evening meetings are adults only*, nursing babies are the exception. At our meetings we’ll hear how God has worked in other women’s lives, hear from great speakers, have refreshments and enjoy spending time together.

*In December and April we invite our EDGE/IMAGE youth girls 6th grade and up to join us at those gatherings.  

Proverbs 31:25-26 "Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the time to come.  She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue."

The purpose of our beMOM ministry is to encourage and equip moms to grow in their love and knowledge of Jesus, who empowers them to live with wisdom and grace. 

Invite a friend and plan to join us the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month at Bethany Community Church from 9:00-10:45 am to connect with other moms and be refreshed. We will enjoy breakfast and coffee together, have a speaker or an activity to encourage and equip moms, and spend time in small group discussions. Moms in any season of life are welcome. We will meet September-May. Childcare will be provided. A yearly registration fee of $75 will be due in September to help cover the cost of childcare and other ministry expenses. If cost is an issue, just let us know. We don't want anyone to be unable to attend due to finances.                                                    

Please help us plan for the upcoming year by registering HERE -  You are welcome to invite and bring friends anytime!

Contact Catherine Malone ( with questions or if you are interested in serving in this ministry.

2 Timothy 4: 2-5 “ ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching. For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths. As for you, always be sober-minded, endure suffering, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry."                                                                       

beREADy is a monthly book club and discussion time for all women.  We desire to grow together in our knowledge of God and His Word, so that we can be ready to serve Him, our families, and the body of Christ.   

We will meet every third Tuesday of the month, September through April from 9:00-10:30 am (with childcare provided) at Bethany Community Church in Room 103. Feel free to come any month, depending on your schedule and whether you finish the book or not. We would request that you take time to RSVP for childcare, if you plan on using it.

To RSVP, go to the upper right hand corner of this page, choose the meeting that you plan to attend, click on "register for this event" and complete the form.  The next several months of book choices are listed below.  They are available at Amazon in book and Kindle (some for just a few dollars or less) format.
