Youth Formation

Sunday

Youth classes meet most Sunday mornings from 9:45 – 11:00 a.m. downstairs.  No registration is necessary for participation

Confirmation Class (8th Grade) | Sundays | 9:45 a.m. | ECW Room
The Bethesda Confirmation Class is open to all current 8th grade youth.  Each week we will discuss a topic from the Episcopal faith, meet Bethesda parishioners who are active members of various Sunday ministries, and play fun learning games to tie everything together.  Participants are invited to be confirmed at the next bishop’s visitation in May.

Mondays

Pilgrimage Group (9th-12th Grade) | Mondays | 7:00 p.m. | Zoom

A pilgrimage is a religious journey.  The spiritual practice of pilgrimage is one of the oldest traditions of our faith, documented as early as the third century, when Christians would journey to the Holy Land and would also travel to see the desert fathers and mothers, ascetics who lived in the wilderness of northern Africa and other remote areas.  Pilgrimages in Europe tend to date to the Middle Ages when Europeans were unable to travel to Jerusalem or the Middle East and typically carried travelers to major cathedrals or the remains of a saint.  This year, our Bethesda high school youth will be walking the Camino Ingles in Northern Spain.  We are traveling to take a spiritual inventory, to walk in the footsteps of Christians who traveled centuries before us, to pray and hear the stories of other travelers on the way.  A pilgrimage is about moving, about remembering, about being inspired and transformed, and about encountering others.

Wednesday

Bethesda Youth Group | 6:00 p.m. | Youth Room
For teenagers, Bethesda offers a regular weekly youth group on Wednesday nights for all youth in 6th-12th Grade. The Bethesda Youth Group balances fascinating conversations about faith with time for fun and games. We also have many special events over the course of the year including annual Universal Studios and camping trips as well as volunteer opportunities with local outreach organizations.

Our first series for the year will explore some of the spiritual beings that are mentioned in the bible, but we may not have a full grasp on what they are, things like angels, demons, saints, and more.

The Bethesda Youth Group meets on Wednesday evenings in the Youth Room. We begin with dinner at 6:00 p.m. and end with prayer in the church at 7:45 p.m.. The group is open to all youth in 6th-12th Grade. No registration is necessary to participate.
