Middle School

At Bethany, we think that Confirmation is the beginning of a teenager’s faith journey—not the end. Middle school youth are at a time in life where they are just starting to think critically about their faith. A lot of them have questions about God, religion, life, and how it all fits together. 

Our hope is that Confirmation can be a place where kids can ask those questions in a safe environment, knowing they will be loved and cared for. For this reason, our Confirmation process revolves around three main areas: building relationships, cultivating faith, and educating students on the basic tenets of Christianity and Lutheranism.

At the completion of the Confirmation program (spring of 8th grade), students are confirmed during the Affirmation of Baptism service, where they publicly profess their faith (even if it’s a work-in-progress) for the God who first loved them.

Confirmation is open to all students in 6th, 7th, and 8th grades. If you have questions, contact Pastor Paul Cannon.

Pool Party VBS

This year 5th through 8th graders can make a splash with Pool Party VBS. The group will meet Wednesday evenings from 6 to 8 pm July 6 - August 3rd. There will be a devotional, a fun water activity, and a meal each week. It's a great way to stay connected during the summer!

For most Impact Youth events, students come together for a community, activity, and devotion. We’ve also gone sledding and volunteered together. Impact Youth happens the first Sunday of every month at 3:30 PM. 

High School
Common Ground

This is a group where students can ask the hard questions, grow in faith and feel connected to a group of peers who share "common ground." We typically meet the fourth Sunday of every month at 3:30 PM.
