Bethany Youth Ministry
The culture of the 21st century has been particularly interested in investing time and money into the youth and young adults of today in order to “liberate” them from the past bondages of their parent’s authority and rules which seem arbitrary to them. It’s loud and clear pronouncement through movies, music and especially the internet is “you are free! Follow your desires! You can do whatever you want with your time, sexuality, imagination and life” – but those who have followed this path have discovered that this “freedom” enslaves them to sin and thereby they lose all their freedom.
Youth at Bethany is a counter-cultural impulse: not to find freedom in that which leads to death, but in Him who is life. It is a community of friends where our love and acceptance of one another is based on God’s love and acceptance of us through Jesus. Here we play games, discuss, open God’s word, pray, make disciples and prepare one another to face the challenges of our culture whether in High School, University or beyond. Here we seek to see young guys and girls follow after Jesus with all their hearts and prepare themselves for the joy of doing so for the rest of their lives.
18:30 to 22:00 Friday nights (open during holidays!)
