Youth come together to study Christ and His work in our world. All are welcome! Tim Peterson uses a number of tools to develop individuals for service, growth, and mission. Everything in place can be summed up in two main principles: Relational and/or Discipleship. This group operates with complete openness and parents have a standing invitation to come to all events. Not as chaperones, but as mentors living a Christian witness. Check out our Bethel Lutheran Young People on YouTube and on the youth page of our monthly newsletter.
Please send all questions about middle School and High School Youth to the Youth Director.
First and Third Wednesdays | 3:30 pm | Bethel
7th and 8th grade Youth meet together with the pastor and other teachers on the first and third Wednesdays during the school year for a two year confirmation program to guide them in their transition to adulthood in the Christian faith. Classes are designed to help the Confirmation Student make the transition from Sunday school to becoming disciples of Christ. Its primary goal is to enhance faith development by involving the student’s family in passing on the faith and involving students in fellowship & servant projects. A reception and display of student Faith Journals is held on Pentecost Sunday for the 2nd year students.
Please send all questions about Confirmation to the pastor.

This is a resource available to families with infants and toddlers to nurture faith in the early years. Splash Cradle Roll helps families mark the promises they make in Baptism by giving the families resources for faith formation.
Please send all questions about getting your child baptized to the pastor.
Our Inter-generational Ministry Events are when we intentionally combine generations together in mutual serving, sharing, or learning within the core activities of the church in order to live out being the body of Christ to each other and out in the community. Inter-generational ministry nurtures Christ-centered community by bringing together two or more generations in planned and purposeful settings, where all are mutually-invested. Generations learn and grow in faith together during the season of Advent/Christmas, Lent, Summer, and a variety of events during the school year. More information can be found on the Family Ministry Page of our monthly newsletter and our Events Page.
