The Jr. High ministry at Bethany exists is to glorify God by proclaiming Jesus Christ as Lord to youth and parents, preparing both to worship Him forever (Eccl 12:13-14).
The Jr. High group is designed to promote Christ-centered lives. The main teaching goal is the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and the understanding of living a Christian life. Our teaching is based solely on God’s Word and the correct handling of it as we seek to apply it to our everyday lives. We have fun, but not at the expense of digging into the eternal truths of the Bible.
We believe that relationships are a key to successful ministry. We want to create an atmosphere of love and unity among the students where every person who comes through the doors feels valued. We also emphasize the importance of the adult leaders spending time mentoring, training, and encouraging our students to grow deeper in their walk with Christ and to represent Him in their families, schools, and teams.
Jr. High students grades seven and eight meet in the Bethany Jr. High room youth room every Sunday at 9:45 a.m. and for youth group every Wednesday at 6:15 p.m.
JH & SH Students: While you can expect awesome games, good food, and fun outdoor activities, you can also look forward to excellent biblical teaching, relationships that are formed, and deep discussions in small group focused on God’s word. Each year, we watch God transform the hearts and lives of our students through their time at Summer Camp, and we can’t wait to see our students come home with a renewed passion for Christ this year!
