Next Generation (Children, Youth and Teens Ministries)
At Bedford First we are raising up Godly leaders. We are dedicated to connecting inter-generationally and creating mentoring relationships where adults mentor youth and teens aid in mentoring children.
The Next Generation at Bedford First United Methodist Church are involved in leading worship in a variety of capacities from music to liturgy. It is important for people of all ages to develop lChristian leadership and fellowship skills. Through a wide variety of activities, groups, and classes, we help them
- Develop a personal relationship with God and seeking God’s presence through Bible study and discussion, prayer, worship, service,
- Discern how they can use their spiritual gifts to make a difference in Bedford and the surrounding community through missional efforts
- Discover that a church youth group can be fun through activities such as movie nights, sports events, concerts, and more.
