Youth Ministry (5th-8th Grade)

Middle School Ministry

Bethlehem’s middle school ministry focuses on students building relationships that matter with:

  • God 
  • Peers
  • Adult leaders
  • Members of our communities

We build these relationships through energetic events, small group discussions, service-learning opportunities, and experiential worship.

Wednesday Night Confirmation

7th & 8th Grade
Wednesdays, 6:30–7:45 pm
During the school year 2020-21

In response to safe COVID-19 practices, Confirmation will take place in homes around the Twin Cities and on Zoom until we are able to return to the church building.

Students currently in 7th and 8th grade meet together for large group fun, teaching, and worship before splitting into small groups to engage with questions about faith and life. Our two-year series focuses on getting to know and love God, others and ourselves. 

2020-2021 (Year B):
Respecting Your Neighbor & Digital Citizenship; Respecting Your Body; Respecting Your Mind; Respecting Your Spirit

2021-2022 (Year A):
Who is God? Who are God’s People? Who is Jesus? Who are Jesus’ Followers?
