Bethany Youth Group


Where You Belong! 

Bethany Youth Group (BYG) exists to develop our teens 6th grade to 12th graders to become mature disciples of Jesus Christ through the fellowship of a loving yet authentic community, engaging in the word of God and to live into the mission of God in the world. Join us for love, laughter and a little bit of crazy as we continue to learn and grow in our mission to love with the heart of Jesus. 

The BYG gathers on Sundays from 4:00 p.m. - 5:30 p.m. Students in grades 6-12 are welcome to join us for fellowship and fun. During our time together, we will break out in small groups for more age-appropriate conversations (6-8 and 9-12 grades). The BYG meets in the Great Room and the BYG Lounge. We will follow CDC guidelines with masks and social distancing. And RSVP for all events.

We'd love to have you! Please complete this form and return to Pastor Jae: 
This year's theme is: Experiencing God 

Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.

 1 Thessalonians 5:16-19

An Inside Look at the BYG 

The BYG will use the "Experiencing God" book as the basis for their curriculum this year. The book was designed to engage you in discipleship and to help you understand how to follow God in your life.  Additionally, we will also explore how current events can be connected with the word of God.

Seven Reasons to Join 


Simply put, it’s fun! BYG provides you with an opportunity to connect with your peers on a Christian faith journey.

Godly Values

 BYG allows us to build a value system that allows us to persevere in life and thrive by overcoming temptations and following God’s will even when we make mistakes.


BYG brings together many different types of people to build a vibrant community, but we all have one thing in common...our faith.


BYG prepares our youth to serve our neighbors through Christ teaching. This gives our youth an important purpose and mission in life that is larger than their own personal desires.


 BYG is a wonderful place to be discipled by God fearing teachers and leaders. We also engage in God’s word so we can make disciples of all nations to share the good news of Christ all over the world for the rest of our lives.


BYG allows us to build a relationship with God, someone who knows us better than we know ourselves, is the best way to find your path.

Love Others

BYG is a safe place to learn to love others who are peers coming from diverse backgrounds and yet seeking God and his love. As we practice loving one another it becomes a part of us so our love can expand throughout our lifetime.
