A church is as healthy as the number of people engaged in its mission and ministry. It is through their engagement that the work and witness of the church spreads through the community, strengthening the testimony of the gospel and the faith of those who serve.
The Bethesda Youth Ministry exists to engage and involve the youth of our community with the happenings of the church, to mold and strengthen their relationships with the Lord, and to equip and prepare them for an adulthood in which they feel confident in their identity in Christ.
Through weekly sermons, worship, and fellowship, we aim to build up the the 6th-12th graders in our congregation to have a clear understanding of the Bible and its relation to their lives, to pursue the Lord in all things, and to share the gospel with conviction.

The faith development of children and youth happens best when there is a partnership between the church and the home. At Bethesda, we believe the next generation of believers is strengthened and equipped by a church that cares for them and a home that raises them to see God's presence at work in their life. Family ministry at Bethesda is more than teaching children and youth, it is about equipping parents to raise faithful followers of Jesus with the help of the church.
The Bethesda Children's Ministry aims to take a focused approach to God’s Word. Our Pre-K - 5th graders are taught Bible character lessons each week with application and reinforcements that relate to their lives here and now. It is our job and our calling as a church to make sure we equip both the children and their parents with the necessary resources and support to nurture young hearts and minds so they grow to love their Savior.
Bethesda Community Foundation
Every day, each one of us builds something. A family. A career. A reputation. A life. Built upon our hopes and dreams, reflecting our values and ideals, shaped by our words and deeds.
A hundred years from now, will the things that mattered to us still matter? Will the causes that stirred our hearts still incite passion? Will the purposes we lived for live on in others? When all is said and done, what do we leave behind?
Many of the blessings we enjoy today are the products of dedication on the part of those before us who were not content with the status quo. Instead, they were committed to leaving future generations a rich inheritance on which to build.
Through the Bethesda Community Foundation, you can make certain your gifts not only benefit others today, but countless generations in the future.
The Foundation can help you build a legacy of compassion, service, and devotion.
