Youth Ministry (9th-12th Grade)

Senior High Ministry

High school is a time of joyful, messy, brave identity formation. Bethlehem high school youth practice personal, interpersonal, and systemic boundary crossing in safe and supportive community. We explore how to lament, dialogue, show up, listen and build meaningful relationships as spiritual practice. We recognize God on the ski slope, in our vulnerable neighbors, in the community garden, in worship, and inside our hearts. We grapple with big questions and unfold into the sacred interaction of God’s story, our story, and the story of our broken and beautiful world.

Sunday Breakfast Club

As the weather continues to warm and more people are vaccinated, we are able to meet in small groups outside once more!

We will be meeting outside at the Minneapolis Campus, to connect with one another over prayer, conversation, games and community.

We will be socially distant and masked. Feel free to bring a chair or blanket to sit on with you!

Outside Breakfast Club:

April 18th 11:30am for 9th and 10th graders. Register here.

April 25th 11:30am for 11th and 12th graders. Register here. 

 

Bethlehem’s Student Leadership Lab

“Let us listen hard, learn together, and put our faith into action where God is calling us”

Bethlehem’s Student Leadership Lab is a leadership group for students in 7th-12th grade at Bethlehem Lutheran Church-Twin Cities to strengthen leadership skills, experiment with what leadership looks like, co-create our ministry alongside our staff, and practice personal, interpersonal and systemic boundary crossing through in our Church and local community.

All students (incoming 7th-12th grade) are welcome to register and be part of the group.

Registrations are due on by May 16th by noon. We will have one meeting in May as a welcome meeting. Starting in June we will start meeting 2x a month. Check out the registration here for more details! 

Wednesday Nights

Confirmation

Confirmation will be different than previous years since we are unable to gather. This provides us a new opportunity to experiment together. We are continuing with Confirmation on Wednesday evenings from 7:00pm-7:45pm with a different structure. 

Online Confirmation Small Groups from 7:00pm-7:45pm: We are in our last month of Confirmation! Our last day is April 28th. This month will include an “Ask the Pastor” and Youth Worship night.

*No Confirmation on March 31st. 

10th Grade Confirmation Celebration: This still will happen this year, but we are moving it to May 23rd, 2021 in hopes that we can celebrate outside and together. 

Contact Ellen Weber if you have not registered and would like to join us.
