Youth in 6th-8th grades participate in confirmation to affirm the promises that were made for them in baptism through monthly small groups on the second Sunday of the month September- May. In addition to regular worship, students take classes, go on retreats to Bethel Horizons, and participate in service work to be God’s hands at work in the world.
We’re making some changes for fall 2016!
- Homeroom is now “Core Groups,” meeting on the 2nd Sunday evening of the month, 6-7:30pm for pizza, large group games, and small group Bible study.
- Classes will be offered primarily on Sunday mornings with other options available.
- Service projects can be completed on your own, or join us for congregational projects on the 1st Sunday of the month from 10-11am in the Youth Lounge/Games Room.
Join Bethel Youth to repack food for the hungry! We’ll sort and repack food for giving out at food pantries to folks who have bare cupboards.
It’s spring break for most of you – meet at Second Harvest, 2802 Dairy Dr., or contact Elisabeth for a ride. Sign up below so we know how many to expect – and a signed release form will be sent in advance for you to bring to the event.
The Bethel Youth Music Ensemble (BYME) is a vocal and instrumental music ministry group, open to all Bethel members in 6th-12th grades. Amy Hartsough and Tony Ward will serve as co-directors with the goal of youth being the driving force behind leading our congregations in song. As with all our ensembles, there’s no audition; just a desire to put what God gave you to good use.
Singers and instrumentalists are needed and welcome.
BYME will lead sung worship in the Sanctuary and Pentecost Room four times this year.
Sunday morning volunteer worship teams are vital to providing a smooth-running and enjoyable worship service. Serving in one of these ministries can enrich your faith and connect you with other members. If you are interested in more information or shadowing someone to see if you would like to join a group, please contact Lisa Huber.
Confirmation Retreats happen each year in fall and spring at Bethel Horizons. Confirmation students are invited to participate in at least three during their confirmation journey. Our spring 2017 retreat for 6-8th grade is:
Sat, April 22 @ 8:30am – Sun, April 23 @ 9am (Adventure on the Ropes Course!)
To register, please contact Elisabeth. Each retreat costs $85 due at event. Please bring completed BLC Youth Medical Release (only if not already on file).
Confirmation students are asked to complete 15 hours (current 7th & 8th graders) or 20 hours (current 6th graders) of service to the community during their time in confirmation. Please submit your recorded hours on the form below as you go!
