Ministries by Life Stages

Infants & Toddlers

Parents may leave their little ones (ages 0-3) in a fun, safe and loving environment during our Sunday AM worship services. When dropping off your children, parents may be asked to leave their cell phone number with our nursery workers in case the need to communicate arises during the service. We have a great group of volunteers who love working in our nursery. Each worker passes a background check before working with minors in our children's ministries.

Children

During Family Bible Study (FBS) on Sundays @ 9:15 AM, children meet in age/grade-appropriate classes. After FBS, children join their family for the first part of the Sunday morning worship service in the sanctuary. Part-way through the service, the children are invited to go to Children's Church (K4 to Grade 5). During the Sunday evening service, the Kids4Truth Club meets starting @ 6 PM (Age 4 to Grade 6). Summer camp is available for kids in Grades 3-6 at The Anchorage Christian Camp or at The Wilds Camp, depending on which camp the group attends that summer.

Teens

Bethel Baptist Cary's teen group, Desire, is available 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). On Wednesdays @ 7 PM, teens meet in the Teen Room for a time of worship, preaching, prayer, and games. Check The Bethel Buzz or our website's News page for teen activity dates and details. Each summer, our teens look forward to attending The Wilds Camp in the mountains of Brevard, NC.

Young
Adults

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. 

Women

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. When we have our Thursday night Bible study, it is also a wonderful opportunity to grow in the Lord together.

Men

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.

 
Seniors

Our Primetimers (ages 55+) edify and encourage one another during their regularly scheduled activities. We also have a dedicated group of widow ladies (known as the Ladies of Grace ministry) who meet upon occasion throughout the year to work on service projects. During our Family Bible Study (FBS) time on Sundays @ 9:15 AM, many of these ladies attend the Grace class or the Ladies for Christ class.

FBS Hour

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

Music

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.

Media

Our Audio Visual Team displays the week's announcements, events, song lyrics, and sermon outlines. In addition, services run smoothly due to their hard work and support. They are also responsible for making sermons

available via livestream and our church website. We really appreciate our A/V Team, who generously use their time and talents to help equip the saints and spread the Gospel in new ways.

Outreach

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 some of our church family travels to spend a week with one of our missionary partners to encourage them and to provide in-person help with projects. Locally, we invite our Cary neighbors to visit our church through canvassing and visits.
