Our desire is for everyone who comes to Beacon to learn and grow in their faith. We aim to see people of all ages equipped to serve, to teach, and to share Jesus Christ's love with others. We do this in a variety of ways both on Sunday mornings and throughout the week.
At Beacon Kids, we desire to teach our children the truth of God’s Word in a fun environment so that they will understand the simple and rich truths of the gospel and be encouraged toward faith in Jesus. All children from birth to 5th grade are part of Beacon Kids on Sunday mornings!
Beacon Youth (6th-12th grade) exists to partner with parents to make disciples of Jesus through exploring faith, making friends, and having fun. All students attend the worship gathering on Sunday mornings and are encouraged to attend other organized weekend or mid-week gatherings to learn about God and build a relationship with Him, with each other, and with their leaders.
Our small group Bible studies at Beacon are called Community Groups. Community Groups provide a place where the truth of the Bible can be learned and lived out in the context of meaningful relationships. Each Community Group is mixed in terms of age, gender and life stage. Our Community Groups meet in homes or our classroom spaces throughout the week and on the weekend.
In addition to our small group Bible studies, we offer periodic equipping classes. Equipping classes provide focused training on a particular topic. Our most recent equipping classes have addressed evangelism, parenting and neighboring.
Women at Beacon regularly gather for Bible study, prayer and encouragement. This fall, our women will be walking through a study in the Book of Genesis called God of Creation. Throughout the semester, there will be fun opportunities to connect with one another through outside events and activities.
Beacon desires to be a faith family and a home away from home for college students in the Greater Boston area. We are conveniently located in the Western Suburbs near Bentley University, Harvard University, Boston College, and Brandeis University. If you are a college student and would like to deepen your faith, serve with your gifts, and connect into a local church we would love to provide you food or coffee to talk more!
Every Saturday morning from 7-9am, a group of men gather at Beacon’s Office space (341 A Trapelo Rd, Belmont) to study the Bible, pray, encourage one another and drink coffee. Recent studies have focused on the Book of Job and the topic of prayer. Newcomers are always welcome!
Life Explored is a 6-week, open discussion to help people uncover what they’re really living for, and see how, in Christ, God meets their deepest desires for happiness. These discussions are hosted in public places in the spring throughout Belmont and are perfect for anyone looking for answers to life’s biggest questions.
