Summer 2021

Summer 2021 @ Bethel

Bethel's Youth Ministry is vibrant and active in the summer with events and activities for kids of all ages! Check this page frequently because new events will continue to be added.


Summer Mission Trip - Tulsa, Oklahoma:
One Site, Two Separate Mission Trips

Click HERE for details & registration for the High School Mission Trip.

Click HERE for details & registration for the College-Aged Mission Trip.

One site, two separate mission trips.  This summer, both the high school and college-aged mission trips are going to Tulsa, Oklahoma.  This city is rich in culture with a long history of racial diversity and struggle.  Here, the groups will partner with a local church to reach across economic, social and racial divides to make a real difference in the community.  

It won't be all work though - there will be plenty of opportunities for fun including a visit to a civil rights museum and some evening get-togethers.  

This really will be two separate mission trips though - the high school and college-aged adults will be have separate work groups, devotions, meals, social activities and more.  Jake Summerville will lead the High School group and Pastor Ladd will lead the College-Aged group.  Students graduating from 12th grade this year can register for either trip.  

Dates: June 25-30
Cost: $450 (includes housing, food, activities & transportation)
High School Participants: Students completed 8th -12th grades
College-Aged Participants: college-aged young adults
Registration Deadline: May 15
Fundraising - There will be some upcoming restaurant fundraisers for which each mission trip participant will receive a portion of the proceeds.  Also, there will be an Easter caramel roll sale that will benefit everyone who volunteers to help.  Do you have other fundraising ideas?  Share them with Pastor Ladd & Jake Summerville and help make them happen!

What mission work will be done?
The specifics of the mission work in Tulsa vary but typically, the work is leading a Vacation Bible School or some physical labor.  When more specifics are known, this FAQ will be updated. 

What fun things will be done in Tulsa?
There are a variety of great museums and sporting events in Tulsa allowing the group to select the activities the group would like.

Embark on an epic quest through hidden ruins, ancient caves, and dense jungles. At Treasured VBS, kids dig into action-packed, faith-filled adventures. They’ll discover God’s greatest treasure isn’t diamonds, gems, or gold–it's them!  

Each day, one memorable Bible Point is reinforced throughout each station,  making it easy to apply long after VBS is over. Each day includes lively activities, fun snacks, new songs and the love of Jesus to take with them in life.  

Covid Precautions
Bethel hopes to offer both weeks of VBS in-person with precautions appropriate for the time.  We anticipate those to include wearing masks, sanitizing hands, being outdoors and others as they are determined.  If it is not yet appropriate to meet in-person, VBS will be offered virtually.  Check back for Covid updates closer to summer.

Volunteers
In order to make this awesome week a success, we need over 100 volunteers - adults, high schoolers and middle schoolers. You can help as leading a small group, games, snacks, story-telling, science, movie, decorations, music and more. 
 
It is a blast working together, growing closer to Christ and having fun with kids. Can you be part of our team?  See the registration links above!
