Special COVID-19 Announcement

Due to COVID-19, Bethel is continuing events via Zoom and other socially distanced programs until conditions improve. 

Youth Group at Easter Breakfast

Welcome to Youth Group! All high school age youth are invited to join us Sunday mornings during the school year at 8:45 a.m. in the Youth Lounge (room 245) — come hang out on the comfy couch and enjoy snacks and conversation on life and faith. Due to COVID-19, we are meeting over Zoom at 8:30 a.m. — email the office if you’d like the link. 

Outside of Sunday mornings, we have a variety of social activities throughout the school year such as game nights, movie nights, Christmas cookie baking, a weekend retreat in the spring (with the Confirmation class), and also service projects.

Every three years, Youth Group members and leaders attend the ELCA Youth Gathering, which brings together over 30,000 youth in United States for faith formation, worship, study, fellowship, service, and fun. The 2018 Youth Gathering took place in Houston; the next Youth Gathering is planned for Minneapolis in late June 2022 (postponed from 2021). The Youth Group offsets trip costs by hosting fundraisers such as an annual Easter Breakfast and a triennial Follies variety show.
