Youth Ministry (7th-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.

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 on April 11th 11:30am will be for 7th and 8th graders.

Register for April 11th Breakfast Club 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! 

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 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.

Senior Sunday

April 25 | Bethlehem Lutheran Church Twin Cities – MPLS Campus

Bethlehem Twin Cities has a tradition of proudly boasting about our graduating seniors, and we aren’t going to stop now! In the past, we have made boards with pictures of our seniors so everyone in the congregation can share in the pride we feel for them. This year, we will share this pride in a video during worship on April 25th.
