Bring Light. Bring Life.

Our Student Ministry exists to move our students toward spiritual maturity and growth in their relationship with Jesus Christ through pursuing God, connecting with the church, and engaging the world. We believe that students have a strategic impact to make on our community. Take some time to explore the ministry opportunities that Bethany Church has for students and then if you have any questions or if you would like to serve in this ministry, please contact Billy Hestand our Student Ministry Pastor. 


Cell Groups

6:00-8:00 p.m. Wednesday evenings at Bethany Church (during the school year). Cell Groups are for all Middle School and High School students. This year the students will be in their small groups (based on age and gender) for a time of studying God’s Word.

Breakfast with a Message 

We’re back! (But no breakfast for now)

9:30 a.m. on Sunday mornings in the Student Center. Students from 6th to 12th grade just stop in any time for breakfast or just to hang out. There is a 25 min discussion/teaching time at the end.
11:00 a.m. Students are encouraged to attend service in the Worship Center or serve in a ministry.

Spring Break Trip

APRIL 2021

This is a fun and relaxing time for students and their leaders out at Fort McCoy where we will stay in cabins for the weekend. We play hard in the outdoors and build relationships with each other. We have some impromptu quiet time with God and some casual study of His Word. We will leave from church on Friday around 4 pm and return Sunday around 5:30 p.m. The cost is $50. 


Bethany Water Ski Team

8:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Thursdays (July 2 through August 6) at Airport Beach. The Bethany Water Ski Team is for students that have completed 7th through 12th grade (or are 13 by June 1). The Water Ski Team exists to provide students an opportunity not only to participate in water sports but to grow in God’s Word and build relationships with each other. This ministry is geared to reach out to teens at all levels of faith and all levels of ability…invite your friends!


Districts Youth Conference

Districts is an annual event for 6th-12th grade students from around the Forest Lakes District (Wisconsin). At this event, students are challenged to a deeper walk with Christ through worship, the Word and prayer. They also experience large group fun, free time and recreational activities designed to build positive, Christ-honoring relationships with each other.
