The Truth is the Sr. High ministry at Bethany. We exist to glorify God by proclaiming Jesus Christ as Lord to youth and parents, preparing both to worship Him forever (Eccl. 12:13-14).

The Truth is a place where students are welcomed and valued. We take time to fellowship, announce upcoming activities, share prayer requests, and study the Bible. Our Sunday school lessons cover short passages within a book of the Bible where we attempt to examine each verse within its proper context for the purpose of applying it to our lives.

Sr. High students 9th-12th grade meet in the Bethany youth room every Sunday from 9:45 a.m. to 10:45 a.m.

The Gospel Institute – Survey of the Bible @ Bethany Baptist Church
Mar 8 @ 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm

The Gospel Institute | Survey of the Bible

While comprised of 66 individual books written by many authors, the Bible is one Book written by one Author.  Every believer will benefit from studying the big picture of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation.  It is common for believers to read individual parts of the Bible without understanding how those parts fit into the whole.  This class is designed to encourage believers who are at all levels of Bible knowledge to know God through His Word.  Come and learn more about the whole message God gave to us through His Book!
Cost of materials is $30. Sign up on your mybethany or call the church office at 309-692-1755.
