Church Ministries



There are several church ministries and outreaches here at Bethany.  There is much to do and much to offer.  We would love for you to come and be a part of our church family and help us minister to our local community and become involved in any of our ministries.

Bethany Baptist Christian Workers Institute

The Christian Workers Institute is an extensive, detailed, bible study taught by Pastor Tim Ellis.  The class meets once a week on Thursday evenings and the class is broken down into 4 semesters.  It is designed in such a way that you can start in any semester and pick up with the next until you have finished them all.

Nursing Home Ministry

Bethany holds a Nursing Home Service Ministry every week at one of two local nursing homes.  This ministry is a way to reach out and encourage the elderly who can not attend church services.  Members of the church hold a service once a week for the patients.  There is preaching and singing in addition to visiting and being an encouragement to the patients.

Service Schedule
Mondays @ 2:00pm - Golden Living Nursing Home
Third Thursday @ 2:00pm - Water Valley Health Care Services

World Wide Missions Program


We strongly believe in supporting the world wide missions program.  This is one of the biggest ministries of Bethany Baptist Church.  We directly support about 35 missionaries in several countries around the world.  In addition to this we also support the New Life Seminary in Monterrey, Mexico which trains young preachers to go out and spread the Gospel.

Bible School Program

During the summer we host bible school programs for the children of our community and even have a little something for the teens.  We have a bible school program at the church which teaches the children about Jesus and runs for a week.  There are fun-filled evenings with games and activities as well as bible lessons. 

Teen Ministries
  We have a special ministry for the teens including classes, socials, and outreaches to keep them involved.  We host youth rally's and meetings a few times each year to encourage them and keep their mind on the things of God.


Ladies Bible Study
  This is a special bible study for ladies which meets Friday mornings @ 10:00am.  The class is held by Sis. Dorothy Ellis and Sis. Judy Dees.  All ladies are welcome.
