Youth

Mission Trips

High School Mission Trips

Youth enjoy independence and spending time with one another. It’s a great way for youth to do those things while serving others. At Bethany, our high school youth have options when it comes to mission trips. They can choose from our youth trips where they will serve with their peers and adult leaders, go on international trips with a parent or trusted adult, or every three years they can go to the ELCA Youth Gathering with thousands of their peers from all over the United States. 

2019 trips to be announced.

Group Weekend Work Camp

New Paris, OH | July 19-25, 2018

Work camp members provide home repairs at no cost for the elderly, disabled, and disadvantaged people who need our help.  Work crews typically serve the same resident for the entire trip, creating an environment where meaningful relationships develop.  We will serve the needs of others through projects like interior and exterior painting, building or repairing porches and wheelchair ramps, building or repairing steps, weatherization and other home repairs.
