Bethel Youth Group  "It Means Something To Be A Christian"     
Don't you feel like you are swimming up stream in today's world? With all the base hype, the worldly culture, and humanistic philosophy, it feels like we have no place to go to enjoy the wonderful life that Christ intended for us. If you've had these feelings, then Bethel's Youth Group may be for you! We have a great time with Christ-centered preaching and have many opportunities to serve in the church, community, and around the world. The young people also have opportunities in the music ministry and children's ministry. Oh yes, we do have some fun outings and activities!

Community Outreach
At Bethel, we provide opportunites for the young people to have an impact in their /files/Church/young people .JPGcommunity. II Corinthians 5:15 tells us that "they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again." We exercise truth through community outreach. The teens are prepared and equipped for these opportunities during their Wednesday night meetings.

Children's Ministry
Teens help in the AWANA program with puppets, fellowship, counseling and game time.

Summer Camp
During the summer, the teens attend the WILDS Christian camp in Brevard, N.C. They leave for an exciting week of games, fun time, free time, Bible-based preaching, spiritual challenges from counselors, and making new friends. They leave on Monday morning and return Saturday evening.

Summer BLAST Program 
During the summer, we provide the children with a special program on Wednesday nights. A majority of the workers come from the youth group. Teens serve as teachers' assistants, game time leaders, puppeteers, and crafts helpers.

Missions Teams
Every two years our youth group takes a missions trip. It is designed for every two years so every teen has the opportunity to visit the mission field at least once while in the youth group. The teens raise the money themselves through fundraisers and monthly deposits. Bethel Baptist Church encourages young people to be challenged to the burden of the mission field, and if the Holy Spirit moves, submission to the mission field.
