Bethany Church Youth Group
At Bethany Youth, we are a community of believers who seek to spread the love and good news of Christ to our world. We have a mid-week gathering time where we engage in Biblical conversations about how to be Christ to the communities around us. We have six pillars of discipleship that help guide our ministry. Those pillars are: surrendering to a gospel-centered life, hunger to know God, embrace Christian community, engage with our surroundings, desire to worship God and invest in multiplying disciples. We also plan various activities throughout the year where we fellowship, serve, and build relationships together. We are intentional about creating a space that is warm and welcoming for all students. We hope you can join us and experience this love and community for yourself.
