Senior High (grades 9-12)
Youth 30 HR Famine, – We will once again be participating in a 30 hour Famine on Friday and Saturday, Feb. 16-17 to raise awareness of the issue of hunger around the world as well in our back yards. Every $40 we raise can help feed and care for a child for one month. Please make the check out to Bethany UMC and put in the memo line: World Vision.
We’d love for you to join us and we certainly ask for your prayers during this event. See the welcome center for ways you can help! Questions? Contact Shawn Cook, 540-280-1666, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Learn “About Us”
God has blessed us with some amazing opportunities to fellowship with one another, to learn about being his hands and feet, and he is moving in our discussions in Sunday School.
Once again thanks to all those who help with the youth program and thanks to the church for all your support!
In Christ, Shawn Cook (email@example.com)
MORE ABOUT THE YOUTH @ BETHANY:
In April we adopted a new name, something to tie us together and inspire us as we grow in our faith. Our time together during the Sunday school hour we are calling BUM Ignite. Ignite is a group setting for learning more about Jesus. We want to make a space for Jesus in our daily lives. And together we encourage one another in our walk with Jesus and strive to make the invisible God visible!! We want to ignite! To get fired up about the things that matter to us, we want to set fire to our world and give life and energy to our faith.
Each youth is challenged to come join us from 10-11 each Sunday as we come together for weekly opportunities to grow in our faith. Like our verse from Jeremiah 29 says, God has a plan for each of us and He has given each of us our own “spark” to offer our church, community and world. So bring a friend and join us at ignite and find your spark!
The Junior High (grades 6-8) and Senior High (grades 9-12) BUMS, as we are affectionately known, meet weekly for BUMs Ignite and monthly for BUM BASHES and mission projects.
Ignite is a place for youth interested in learning more about Jesus. Our world says a lot about who He is and what He taught. Together we want to pursue the truth. We want to make a space for Jesus in our daily lives. And together we encourage one another in our walk with Jesus and strive to make the invisible God visible!! Whether you’ve grown up in church or have never stepped foot in one, we believe in creating a place where anyone can learn about the God who created them and come to know Him personally.
Our goal is to ignite! To get fired up about the things that matter to us, we want to set fire to our world and give life and energy to our faith. God has a plan for each of us and has given each of us our own “spark” to offer our church, community and world! Ignite meets for teaching and discussion during the Sunday School hour from 9:50-11 every Sunday morning.
Ignite is a time for opening our minds and hearts to the teaching and discovery of God. Bashes are a time of wacky fun and fellowship. BUM Bashes happen once a month usually on the third Sunday and consist of games, outings or service projects. Come see how being the hands and feet of Jesus can be a ton of fun!
