The Youth Ministry of Emmanuel draws junior and senior high school students together for fun, friendship, food, and faith in a caring environment that encourages their personal & spiritual growth. The programs and activities vary week-to-week but are all geared to connect them with Jesus Christ & others AND, to encourage them in their faith walk. The Youth Ministry meets from 6-8 pm every Sunday during the school year. Activities are offered once a month during the summer.
A special component of our Youth Ministry is the Bethlehem Christian Youth Basketball League. Our mission is to connect with youth through basketball, inspiring them to realize their full potential. We seek to instill confidence, encourage positive attitudes, and to build a foundation for personal success throughout their lives. Our goal is to reach this generation and we are doing that through sports. The BCYBL directors and leaders are Christians who have a heart for the youth of Bethlehem. The spiritual side of our program entails bringing both teams to the center of the court to pray before each game, and at half-time we do a 5-10 minute devotion. This year we will also be starting devotions and prayers at practice as well. We truly believe this basketball league is keeping kids engaged in healthy activities and giving them an uplifting way to spend their time. Through the love of Jesus Christ, sports and discipline, they learn to find new ways of coping with the stresses of life, on and off the court. Contact the church for more information.
