For too long Christian education and youth group ministries have been segmented, stand-alone and choppy.
Guided by John 15:16 (where Christ declares HE has called us as followers to BEAR FRUIT that will last)…
…Bethel’s “John1516s” provides integrated youth Christian education, service and milestone ministries for all ages.
“Cubs” is Bethel’s pre-K through 5th grade Sunday School program, which introduces kids to God’s overarching Bible stories, promises for them and life-lessons to be applied. Click here for the current schedule.
John1516s “Salt Talk”
Bethel’s 6th grade through high school Sunday program. Building from John 15:16, Salt Talk grounds itself further in Colossians 4:6 – guiding youths’ conversation to be always preserved (i.e., salt) with grace and wisdom to engage constructively and faithfully in a diverse world.
John1516s Youth Service Group
Encompassing Bethel’s Confirmation instruction, youth group and post-Confirmation ministries, John1516s integrates a holistic approach to youths’ teenage years. Traditional Catechism instruction (i.e., Confirmation) runs concurrent to all other teen youth ministries in order to provide seamless transition through middle school years and into a lifetime of Christian faith formation and action.
