Bethel Baptist Cary offers ministries for every season or stage of life.
We minister to babies, singles, couples, families, empty-nesters, and retired folks.
Participating in events is a great way to connect with others.

Ministries by Life Stages
Infants & Toddlers
Parents or grandparents may leave their little ones (ages 0-3) in a fun, safe and loving environment during our Sunday AM worship services. Be sure to share your cell phone number with the nursery workers so they can easily reach you if a need arises mid-service. It is a joy to our nursery workers to provide loving care for each child that spends time in the nursery.
During Family Bible Study (FBS) on Sundays @ 9:15 AM, children meet in age/grade-appropriate classes. After FBS, they join their family in the sanctuary for the start of the service. Part-way through the service, children are invited to attend Children's Church (K4 to Grade 5). On Sunday nights, Kids4Truth Club meets @ 6 PM (Age 4 to Grade 6). Each summer, the older kids (Grades 3-6) spend a week at The Anchorage Christian Camp or at The Wilds Camp, depending on which camp the group attends that summer.
Our teen group, Desire, is open to students in Grades 7-12. During Family Bible Study (FBS) on Sundays @ 9:15 AM, teens meet in the Teen Room (Room 107 or The Flipside). Teens meet in the Teen Room again on Wednesdays @ 7 PM for worship, preaching, prayer, and games. Details for other teen activities are included in The Bethel Buzz and on our website's News page. Each summer, teens spend a week at The Wilds Camp in the mountains of Brevard, NC.
Single Adults who are high school graduates, in college, or are college graduates are welcome to join the Young Adult Family Bible Study (FBS) small group that meets on Sunday mornings. In addition to Sunday's FBS class, the Young Adults enjoy getting together for events such as: meals, bowling, visiting the NC Zoo, mini golf, laser tag, disc golf, an Escape Room, game nights, and a walking scavenger hunt in downtown Cary.
Regular activities through our Woman’s TOUCH ministry keep the ladies connected. These, along with the weekly Ladies for Christ Family Bible Study class, provide a great place for women of all ages and stages to encourage and learn from one another. Ladies also have the opportunity to bond over an annual Ladies’ Prayer Advance or Ladies Conference. Our Thursday night Bible study is another wonderful opportunity for our ladies to grow in the Lord together.
As leaders of their families, men have a big responsibility. It is our desire to encourage these men to be godly examples to others around them, leading others into a closer relationship with Christ. We have a regular Prayer Breakfast for a time of fellowship and bearing one another’s burdens. We also attend the annual East Coast Men’s Prayer Advance hosted by Christ Life Ministries.
Our Primetimers (ages 55+) edify and encourage one another during their regularly scheduled activities. Our widows or "Ladies of Grace" group meets throughout the year to work on service projects together. On Sundays, during Family Bible Study (FBS) time, many of these ladies attend the Grace class or the Ladies for Christ class.
Our Family Bible Study (FBS) small groups and classes meet on Sundays @ 9:15 AM. Our FBS small groups minister to adults sharing similar life seasons or stages. Our children's classes are grouped by age and/or grade. Since the nursery is unavailable during our FBS hour, parents are welcome to bring their children (ages 0-3) to their FBS small group.

Opportunities to Serve
We love worshiping our Great God through song and music. Our choir and orchestra are comprised of
church family volunteers who enjoy using their gifts during our services. We also hold an annual Christmas musical each December. If you are a church member and would like to get involved or have questions about this ministry, please see our Music Director, Don Alexander.
Our services run smoothly due to the hard work and support of our fabulous A/V Team, who displays the week's announcements, coming events, song lyrics, and sermon outlines during all services. They also make sure sermons are available via livestream and our website. Our A/V Team members generously offer up their time and talents to help equip the saints and spread the Gospel in new ways. We greatly appreciate them!
We want to reach people with the truth and love of the Good News locally and worldwide. We are partners with more than 30 who share the love of Christ worldwide. Every few years, pastor and church family volunteers spend a week encouraging one of our missionary partners and providing in-person help with projects. Locally, we invite our Cary neighbors to visit our church through canvassing and visits.
