Youth Ministries

Sunday School

Sunday School is an opportunity for our students to engage with scripture. All Youth meet in the Middle School room (Room 107) at 10:00 am. Classes are taught by rotating Adult Volunteer teachers and focus on various Bible studies throughout the year. Students hear messages, discuss their faith, and grow together in their relationship with Jesus.

Sunday Night Youth

On Sunday evenings we have Open Youth Time from 4- 5pm. This is a time for the youth to play in the gym, hang out in the Youth room or work on homework. From 5- 6pm, we have Bible study. Sometimes we will forego our regular schedule and have game night, movie night, and other things of that nature. We would love for you to join us! Check our Bethesda Youth Ministry social media accounts for updates.  Facebook- Bethesda UMC Youth, Instagram- bethesdaumc.youth.  Visit Other Ways to Get Involved for information about our big service opportunities, Salkehatchie & Santahatchie!

Confirmation Class

Confirmation classes take place during the Spring each year.  This ministry focuses on preparing youth for full membership in the United Methodist Church, with a focus on church history, principles, teachings, and sacraments. Students learn about discipleship and their role in the church body. Contact Charla Bloomer or Pastor Judson King for more information.
