"Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others, but let us watch and be sober."   -1st Thessalonians 5:5-6

Our youth activities promote Christian values and help build and develop servant leaders for the next generation. The Bethlehem Baptist Church Youth Ministry is designed to lead all children and teens to a deeper relationship in Jesus Christ, as well as the saving knowledge of Jesus under the direction of the Holy Spirit. This is accomplished through discipline teens, mission trips, prayer, fellowship and events that build up the body of Christ.

If you don't have God in your life or want to know how to draw closer to God, then we hope and pray you will come and find out what God's word says. GO WITH GOD!

Our symbol is a star with five arrows pointing inward to Christ at the center.  These denote our Christian growth through worship, Bible study, life decisions, fellowship, and churchmanship.  Five arrows also point outward to the ends of the earth. We teach students to live and share their faith through verbal witness, missions, and ministry. Developing and promoting youth activities is an important part of our church. We are committed to training our children for a future in Kingdom Building. The church offers several activities for our younger members.
