Bethany Story Groups
Late September 2021, Apply below
A safe and nurturing space to explore your story and reflect on what has shaped you to become who you are.
Join us for this 10-week small group experience to engage the broken parts of your story, discover God’s redeeming presence in your life and grow in becoming who you are meant to be.
Even as Christians we may struggle to know ourselves loved and accepted by God. Emotional wounds sustained during childhood still impact us: they shape how we relate to God, ourselves, and others, and keep us bound to coping skills and defensive mechanisms that restrict our ability to love and be loved in the way God intended for us.
Bethany Story groups provide the opportunity to engage these stories of hardship in the midst of a caring community and experience acceptance, compassion and kindness in the process. As part of the group process, each participant commits to writing one or two childhood narratives to read to the group, inviting feedback and reflection. In addition, participants will work through one chapter of our Bethany Story Workbook per week. Click here to preview an excerpt from our Story Workbook (chapter 1 of 10).
Groups will meet weekly on Monday nights or Thursday mornings for ten weeks, beginning in February. The program fee is $100. (Partial scholarships are available upon request). If you are interested in applying for a story group, please submit your initial application below.
