THis Fall AT BETHEL YOUTH
Update - September 16, 2020
As we look to a new year of Bethel Youth, I wanted to let you know that I, Melanie Wright, the Director of Youth Ministries at Bethel Community Church will be taking a one month leave of absence (between September 16 and October 15). With the passing of my father at the end of July and as the executor of his estate, I felt it was necessary to take time to rest and grieve before kicking off a new season of Youth Ministry.
Our Friday night programming will, therefore, not start until early November. I would, however, like to hear your feedback as to whether you and your teen(s) would like to see this our programming meet in-person, online, or a hybrid of the two options. Please click the link below to provide your feedback. The form will be open until mid to late October, so feel free to give feedback anytime in the next few weeks.
As you eagerly await the kickoff of Bethel Youth, I want to encourage families to take advantage of the resources available through RightNow Media. If you have not already signed up for a FREE account through Bethel Community Church, you can do so by clicking here.
You can use the Youth Bible Study Roadmap (pictured to the right) provided by RightNow Media or explore the various resources available for the whole family.
I also wanted to let you know about a resource available through a University of Alberta student group - Help Young Minds. This group was created as a response to COVID-19 and the toll it can take on student learning. Help Young Minds realized there are instances where students are absent from school due to health-related issues or are unable to access the resources they need to succeed. Their goal is to support all children who are unable to attend school for some time or need extra help but are having difficulties finding the right resources or finances. The resources they currently offer are:
1. Free tutoring by undergraduate and graduate students at the University of Alberta
2. Supportive blogs for students needing advice while pursuing their studies
3. Educational videos.
These resources are meant to be accessible for any student from grades K-12.
Tutoring is available in French and English.
You can visit the website for Help Young Minds by clicking the button below.
Additional resources are available for teens and parents under our "Resources" tab above.
