September Classes and Events

Youth Lock-In | September 22 | 6:00 pm

Open to all youth in 6th-12th Grade, our annual lock-in is a great way to learn more about the church building and get to know other teens at Bethesda. It’s also a great opportunity to eat lots of pizza and snacks, watch movies on our giant screen in the Parish Hall, and stay up way too late playing ping pong. To register, contact Greg Knight at or call 561-655-4554.
