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 Hangouts

Wednesday Nights

Wednesday Voices

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 6:30pm-7:45pm with a different structure. 

Wednesday Evenings will look like this: 

  • Wednesday Voices Video at 6:30pm: A video created to spark conversation that is focused on connecting parts of our faith with the daily lives of young people. *This can be watched with your family or on Zoom with peers and Ellen. 
  • Conversation/Reflection time from 6:45pm: This is not an assignment.  It’s not homework.  We hope that this can be a reason to come together, at least for a little bit, to talk about things that matter.  If the guided questions don’t help, talk about something else.  But for 25 minutes look away from devices and distractions and try to see and connect, we know it’s hard, but we hope it’s worth it.
  • Online Confirmation Small Groups from 7:00pm-7:45pm: Students will log onto Zoom and be added to their small group breakout room with an adult leader. This will be a space to build relationships and connections with each other through our faith throughout the week. 

*No Confirmation on November 25th, December 23rd, and December 30th.

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.
