Middle school and high school is a time of joyful, messy, brave identity formation. We engage with students through weekly hangouts, community service, and loads of fun activities. We love being silly together, especially at special events such as our lock-ins, retreats, and summer trips. We often explore big life questions through a no-pressure and judgment-free atmosphere, and reflect together on what it means to truly love and welcome our neighbors as ourselves. We are an LGBTQIA+ and neurodivergent welcoming community. We’d love to have you join us!

6th-8th graders are invited to connect together in between worship services on Sunday mornings. Come join us for a time to connect with friends through prayer, games, intentional discussions, and FUN!

Middle School Friday Hangouts
All middle school students are invited to spend their Friday evenings at Bethlehem. We’ll have pizza plus a variety of activities, service projects, time together, and maybe a field trip or two.

Wednesdays, Starting September 13, 6:30 – 7:45 pm
Young people ask good questions. Our role at Bethlehem is to walk beside these young people and to encourage them to ask hard faith questions. In the 2023-24 school year, confirmation students will jump into “God and My Ipod?” Together, we will use the Bible, small groups, and each other to find answers to what God has to do with my daily life.Register Here!
Wednesdays, Starting September 20, 5:45-6:30 pm
We invite students in 6th-12th grade to join our youth choir before Wednesday night confirmation. Students are guided in their spiritual development through singing music to the glory of God while learning to be part of a musical ensemble and Christian community. They are encouraged to grow in their faith through the sharing of their voices with each other and the congregation.Register Here
