BUMC YOuth Group


A Safe Place

The Middle and High School years are some of the most challenging times of life. The teenage years are the most impressionable; peers can be brutal and culture is unrelenting in the messages it sends our youth. Bethlehem's Youth Leaders are passionate about supporting students and their parents in raising Godly kids. It's our desire to see youth connect to God, be impacted by His Word, and equip them to be a positive, life-changing voice in their culture.

Both adult and student leaders are constantly investing time and energy to ensure that Bethlehem's youth group is a place of safety and acceptance, where students can experience God in an authentic way.
