Bethel Youth

Welcome to the Bethel Youth Page. We are in the process of rethinking what it means to be a youth group, and I would love to invite you to join us as we grow and learn together what it means to be a community of believers who follow Jesus. Everyone here at Bethel believes that the main way that we can grow as followers of Jesus is in a context of relationship and community. So that is what we would like to invite you into. Come and join us, introduce yourself, and have some fun!

July 4-5th we will be going on a one-night camping trip to the Kortney plains. You can expect a great time out in God's creation while getting to know the Mexico team who will be joining us for the trip. The cost for the trip is 50$ and includes the cost of food, gas, the camp site, and t-shirt designed for the Mexico team!  

Parents if you are at all interested in driving, or if you have extra camping gear available, please reach out to zach@discoverbethel.com, or indicate so in the registration form below.

Youth - Paul and Pancakes (1).png

Paul and Pancakes is an opportunity for youth to gather for fellowship and Bible study while eating pancakes together. On the third Sunday of each month, youth will meet in the downstairs kitchen of Bethel during the worship service meeting during "connect time"(when Bethel Kids gets dismissed). We will eat pancakes together and spend time together in community. We then watch a 10-minute devotional video and discuss 1 Corinthians together.

 

The series we are going through is Jennie Allen's "The Book of Corinthians" series. Description and link to trailer for the series is below: 

                      Christianity calls us to sacrifice instead of living for oneself. We have to choose one or the other—

                       we can't do both. The Christians in Corinth tried to live the Christian life in a worldly way. Paul

                       wrote the letter of 1 Corinthians to a divided and self-centered people to remind them to follow

                       Jesus and only Jesus. 

 

                       In this 12-part series, author and speaker Jennie Allen walks into the messy lives of the

                       Corinthians and takes us through Paul’s words to the conflicted church. We'll see how the truth

                       of the gospel and the Spirit of God can empower us to choose to follow Jesus every day of our lives. 
 

Youth - Missions.png

Since 2011, Bethel Youth have been in a partnership with Centro Biblico Familiar El Sembrador church in Hermosillo, Mexico. Over the past several years Bethel Youth has seen the church flourish. The church was established in 2006 in a room at the back of the Pastor's house. Our first youth team met in this space with Pastor Arturo and the Aguirre family during our first trip to Hermosillo in 2011. The following year they were able to acquire land and build a church in a newly developing part of the city. All the while, Pastor Arturo and his family have been able to minister to the community around their home and around the church through Vacation Bible Schools, praying for people at hospitals, delivering food bags to those in need, hosting sports tournaments and much more. In 2017 they began ministering to communities along the west coast of Mexico (in Punta Chueca, Bahia Kino and Miguel Aleman) and frequently drive a few hours to the coast to minister to the Seri (indigenous community) people of Punta Chueca. 


Through our partnership with Centro Biblico Familiar El Sembrador and the Aguirre family, our youth have the opportunity to grow in their faith while impacting the world for Christ and encouraging our brothers and sisters in Christ. 

After our recent 2023 missions trip, our youth team expressed a desire to bring a team from the church in Mexico to Canada to partner with the ministry Bethel is doing in Edmonton. They want our partner church in Mexico to see with their own eyes what the biggest needs of our community are so they know how best to be praying for the ministries in Canada. The church in Hermosillo has a goal of raising 10,000USD to cover the majority of the cost of flights to Canada, while our youth team hopes to fundraise the remaining amount needed for flights, accommodations, and food. Throughout the year, we will have a few fundraiser events to raise funds for this initiative. We pray that a team of youth and young adults will join us in Canada for a week during the summer of 2024.
