Bethlehem's Youth & Family Ministries
This ministry guides young people in grades six through twelve to grow together in faith through weekly Bible studies, summer trips, service projects, weekend retreats and Christ-centered relationships with peers and caring adults.
Our middle school ministry is centered on Confirmation, which meets weekly on Wednesday nights and has a fun event or retreats throughout the year. Our high school students meet weekly in small groups, on Sundaymornings at Café Bethlehem, and participate in other fun gatherings.
This ministry provides an opportunity for community among members, visitors and friends of Bethlehem. It also plans special events for families to enjoy together, especially families with young children.
Groups within this ministry include Progressive Dinner, Men's Ministry Events, Friendship Tables (small dinner groups), Seder Meal (traditional Holy Week meal), Softball, Basketball, Bowling, Family Ministry Events, Church Receptions, and Social Gatherings.
The Preschool Ministry Team works with the Director of the Bethlehem Preschool and Daycare Center to ensure support for this important outreach ministry. Bethlehem has supported this ministry since 1968 Bethlehem, providing quality childcare and preschool programs to the children of the Fox Valley. We are proud to have been accredited by the National Academy for the Education of Young Children in 1999. Last year we went through the re-accreditation process and earned accreditation through April of 2010.
