We consider it a privilege to join parents in the discipling of their children, and we pray that Bethany Youth Group serves and blesses the families of our community. Here are some of the basics:

 To proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ, so that students live for the glory of God and for the good of others.

Sunday Morning Life Groups

Join us on Sunday mornings at 9:45 as we talk about life with a biblical perspective.

Middle School:

John and Chris Paxson teach this class for 6th-8th grade students using the curriculum What’s Up?. This class is designed to help our middle school students dig into the basics of the gospel and its implications for their lives. Is being a Christian about being good, listening to parents, and obeying rules? Our goal is to dig into God’s Word, break free of moralism, and help kids understand why the gospel really is good news for them.

High School:

High school is a time of transition from childhood to adulthood. This class aims to equip high school students with skills and concepts that will serve to strengthen their faith for a lifetime. We cover topics such as the Bible and how to study it, knowing how to answer objections to the faith, how to pray, and the role of suffering in the Christian life.

Communicants Class:

This group is offered on a regular basis and runs for several weeks in a row. The aim is to prepare covenant children (typically middle and high schoolers) who are ready to make a profession of their faith and become members of the church. We learn about what we believe as a church and children of God as well as a brief overview of church history.
