Summer Camp – Youth may attend Lake Wapogasset Lutheran Bible Camp in Amery, Wisconsin or Green Lake Bible Camp in Spicer. We have youth going to both camps each summer.
Lock-Ins – The Middle School youth generally have at least one over-night lock-in experience. Like the Senior High Youth, they participate in a variety of activities, games, movies and service projects.
Field Trips – The youth have visited college campuses, gone to concerts, ball games, visited other churches, apple orchards, Valley Fair. The possibilities are endless!
Service Projects – This age group has participated in “Feed My Starving Children” and made sandwiches for the homeless. They’ve gone apple picking for congregation members, baked cookies for shut-ins and shopped and wrapped gifts for Bethel’s Adopt-A-Family program benefiting families through Sabathani Community Center.
Fundraisers – Fundraising is more limited with this age group; however, they do participate to a lesser degree to help pay for camp fees. Those fundraisers include the Italian Spaghetti Dinner, Silent Auction, Ice Cream Social and Easter Breakfast.
Worship Assistants – Bethel Youth are encouraged to participate in Worship services as readers, greeters, members of choirs, cross bearers and ushers. Bethel’s Youth are a valued part of the congregation
Confirmation – This ministry continues to be the main focus of this age group.
