Youth ministry at Bethany seeks to provide a safe place for middle and high schoolers to grow in their faith, build relationships with peers and leaders, and encounter Jesus.


Middle School Camp 2019

Wednesday, July 10 at 9 am – Sunday, July 14 at noon.

This trip is open to current 5th – 7th Graders.

Activities include group games, water activities, supervised free time, daily worship, devotional time, and small groups.

This is a great opportunity for your student to grow in their community at Bethany and deepen their relationship with Jesus. Cost is $390 per student; scholarships available.

High School Mission 2019

Friday August 2nd– Friday August 9th.  

Location: Puerto Rico. This trip is open to current 8th graders through graduating seniors.

We will be traveling together to serve a local church and surrounding community in Puerto Rico, which was damaged by a hurricane in 2017.  Much of this area is still rebuilding.  It is also an opportunity to discover God’s heart of justice and learn from our neighbors in Puerto Rico. You will be stretched with some new foods, build relationships with a primarily Spanish speaking community, and a new understanding of what it means to be a territory of the US.

Cost   $1750 before December 23 or $1950 after December 23


Youth Group

Play games and worship together.  Friends welcome!

High School meets Tuesdays  from 7-9:00pm in the Youth House.

Middle School meets Thursdays from 7-8:30pm in the Youth House.

Our Youth House is 11 Howe St. just around the corner from the front of the church.


Sunday Small Groups

Our Youth Ministry aims to grow students into lifelong disciples. Part of this is integrating these emerging adults into the worship with the church.

The first Sunday of each month, students remain in the worship service.

Come to 9:00 am worship in the Sanctuary.  After the Children’s Time, exit out the back of the Sanctuary (Approx 9:20 am) to the lobby, where you will meet your group. 

Small groups (all grades) will meet in various places on the Bethany campus.  If your student needs help connecting with the appropriate group contact Danielle.
