The Truth is the Sr. High ministry at Bethany. We exist to glorify God by proclaiming Jesus Christ as Lord to youth and parents, preparing both to worship Him forever (Eccl. 12:13-14).

The Truth is a place where students are welcomed and valued. We take time to fellowship, announce upcoming activities, share prayer requests, and study the Bible. Our Sunday school lessons cover short passages within a book of the Bible where we attempt to examine each verse within its proper context for the purpose of applying it to our lives.

Sr. High students meet in room 814 from 9:00-9:45 a.m for Sunday School and for youth group, every Wednesday in the SH room at 6:00 p.m.
