Bethesda Youth

Having a relationship with our Savior Jesus Christ.

No matter who you are or where you come from, if you are in 6th-12th grade, you are welcome at Bethesda Youth. Our desire is to create a welcoming environment, in the midst of the busy lives of our students, where youth can encounter God’s love and grow as disciples of Jesus Christ. We hope you will join us as we share God’s love, love one another, and have some fun!

We meet on Friday Evenings. All ages gather from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm for Youth Fellowship. During this time, our main purpose is to strengthen the bond between the youth who attend through food and fellowship.

Through various Friday evening activities, we hope our youth build strong bonds that evolve into lifelong friendships.
