Ministries

What's going on at Bethany...

Children

We offer children’s Sunday School and nursery. We also host a summer Vacation Bible School, in which we seek to share the Gospel with children who regularly attend BBC and those from our community.

Deacons

The New Testament deacon is an office of service. The deacon should demonstrate godly character and provide a personal example of Christian maturity (1 Timothy 3:8-13). Our deacon team works with the pastor to serve the varied spiritual and physical needs of our church family through a Care Group ministry model.

Fall Bible Conference

We host a weekend Bible conference every fall! Past themes have included, "The Life of Joy," "The Walk of Faith," "Matthew's Case for Christ," and "Dark Stories from Genesis."  Pastor Mike Summers, Countryside Baptist Church (Olathe, KS) spoke at the 2016 conference, addressing the themes of marriage and parenting.  Pastor Joseph Braden, FBC St. Peters, will join us September 15-17, 2017, with teachings from the New Testament letter of Titus.

Library

Our church library provides both fiction and nonfiction materials to enhance spiritual growth and provide for recreational reading. We use a self-checkout system to enable easy access to materials. A listing of our materials may be found at: librarything.com/catalog/bbclibrarysedalia.

Men

Our men meet one Saturday morning each month for breakfast, fellowship, Bible study, and prayer.

Missions & Outreach

BBC seeks to “go and tell” the Good News of Jesus Christ. To this end we support ministries and missionaries in the USA, Haiti, Chad, India, and Russia. We’ve sent teams of adults and teens on mission in North America and Haiti.  We also support world-wide and domestic missions through the International and North American Missions Boards of the Southern Baptist Convention.  Closer to home, we have monthly visitation and outreach, serve meals in a local community kitchen, help support a local food pantry, serve summer lunches in a local park, and are actively involved with Sagrada Scholarship Bible Camp (www.sagradabiblecamp.org) a Bible-camp ministry for disadvantaged children.  In August, 2016 we sent a team back to Haiti to minister in the Haiti Home of Hope orphanage (our fifth team to serve in the Home of Hope since 2008).
Our summer mission team served in a Haitian orphanage.

Prayer

We set aside Wednesday evening meetings for prayer and examining what the Bible teaches about the believer’s privilege of talking to God. Generally, we bring the concerns and praises of our congregation to the Lord in small groups.

Student Ministry

Teens at BBC meet for Sunday school and special events. Many of our students are involved in the ministries of the church, including music ministry, missions, and children’s ministry.

Sunday School 

BBC offers Sunday School classes for all ages, from preschool to senior adults. These classes provide opportunities to study the Word of God and fellowship in a small group setting with believers of similar age and life experience. 

Women

Bethany Baptist provides several ministry and fellowship opportunities for women. The Ladies Fellowship meets monthly for fellowship and service projects. The Mugs ‘n Muffins Bible Study provides Bible study opportunities in the spring and fall.
