We Have Something for Everyone
At Elbethel Baptist Church, we believe a healthy church community is an active community. Take a look at our many opportunities to take part in learning and growing together.
Women's Bible Study
Every Monday @ 530
Our Women’s Ministry at ElBethel Baptist Church is a place with different activities for the
women to engage. We provide Women’s Bible Study each Monday, Annual Women’s
Conference and fellowship outside the four walls of the church. It is important for women’s growth and knowledge in the Word of God to be better equipped for the things we are faced with. We need to know how to apply the word of God in our lives to fight off the schemes of the enemy. We are reminded that She is strong- Isaiah 40:31, She valiant-2 Samuel 13:28 and She is enough-Proverbs 31:25. What a better way to grow in Christ by engaging in a weekly Bible Study.
Our Women’s Ministry not only provides sound biblical teaching but there are some benefits
1. Support and Stimulation: Women often understand each other’s life experiences and
can provide support to each other. Often times these women will encourage each other
and empathize with each other as well as attempt to live out the scriptures we study.
2. Fellowship and Friendship: Everyone desires acquaintance. Fellowship within the
women’s ministry especially the bible study group provides camaraderie and allies we
connect with over common interests that start with God’s Word. We have discovered
women will become our cheerleaders to cheer us on and celebrate our victories. We
also encounter times when we mourn with each other and also in times of grief and
sorrow. All this comes from growth and love for each other.
3. Accountability and Acceptance: Being connected to a women’s ministry affords the
opportunities to interact with women who will help hold you accountable with love and
compassion. The ministry also helps inspire each other to continue growing as we
accept each other as we are.

Men's Bible Study
Every Other Tuesday @ 630
This study helps men to understand God’s word in a setting that promotes brethren love. Men are accountable for spiritual leadership within their families, yet each person is ultimately accountable to God for his or her own life. Prov 27:17, “As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend. NLT.” To sharpen a piece of iron, you don’t rub it against gold or silver—you rub it against another piece of iron. To sharpen himself, a man needs to rub shoulders with another man. With the leading of the Holy Spirit, our motto is “Strong Men in difficult times.” We meet on Zoom every other Tuesday at 6:30pm.
Young Adult Bible Study
Every Other Thursday @ 7
This is your Event Description. It’s a great place to give your visitors information about upcoming events at your church and around the community. Include relevant information like where and when it’s happening, who it’s geared towards, and who to contact with questions. Add an image or a video for extra engagement.
The purpose of the Youth Ministry is to minister to the spiritual, educational and recreational needs of all youth that attend Elbethel Baptist. The Youth Ministry meets monthly and for special occasions throughout the year.
Every 4th Saturday @ 11
This ministry is for boys and teenage guys from 8-19 years old. Our pledge is: “As a Royal Ambassador I will do my best: To become a well-informed and responsible follower of Christ -- To have a Christ-like concern for all people -- To learn how to carry the message of Christ around the world -- To work with others in sharing Christ --To keep myself clean and healthy in mind and body.” We meet at the church on the Saturday before the 4 th Sunday at 11am. While ministering is our focus, the program encourages educational success, civic engagement, leadership and character building. Our meeting includes recreation and refreshment.
The purpose of the Sunbeam Club is to encourage the girls to cultivate a relationship with Christ, to create friendships within the club and to foster better relationships with their families. We teach that the most important relationship they will have, is with God. Not only do they learn about spiritual wellbeing but also about mental and physical wellbeing. We discuss real life problems and find solutions by applying the written Word of God. Not only do they have fun learning God's Word but they also have fun with the activities and outings the leaders plan. As Sunbeam Club leaders, our mission is to present a solid foundation for the girls to build their life on, so that, they will understand that Jesus Christ is the way and that God loves them even when they make mistakes. Matthew 5:14 "You are the light of the world..."We usually meet at ElBethel on the 3rd Saturday of each month at 12 noon. Please join us! Younger girls and teenage girls are welcomed!
The purpose of the Our Men's Ministry is to form a fellowship of Christian men toward the end of redeeming humanity back to God and utilizing shared experiences toward the aim of helping each other move from faith to faith in the daily Christian experience. The ministry further aims to guide participants in Christian service, through their gifts, to make a difference in the world, particularly by sharing the message of Jesus Christ with others. All men are invited to join.
We are a ministry that reaches out to those who are disadvantaged in the community. We provide services through various programs and activities monthly. We would love for you to join!
The Mission Ministry is group of us that come together. We go out and visit the home bound, partake in communion with them, and tend to the flock that we don't always see in church.
