Vital Student Ministries
Vital Student Ministries is the ministry group for middle and high school students at Bethel Temple. We meet on weekends at
6:00pm to have small groups, worship and devotions. We also participate in Summer Camp and District events such as Fall & Spring Youth Conventions. One of our biggest goals is to raise money for Speed the Light-- the Assemblies of God missions program that buys transportation and Audio/Visual equipment for its missionaries. Last year, we raised over $2,000.00 for STL! If you’re a teenager looking for a group where you can come to have fun, and more importantly, strengthen your walk with Jesus, we encourage you to come check us out!

AFRICAN WELL PROJECT
Clean water-- it's a necessity for life and something we take for granted everyday. But for thousands in Africa it's something they do not have. Everyday they walk for miles only to dip their buckets into dirty reservoirs full of parasites and disease. The Youth Ministry of Bethel Temple is raising $10,000 to build a well to provide clean water for the people of Africa. We are walking 10 miles and carrying crosses around the city of Huntington, WV (the Wiseman's Walk) to raise the money and awareness for this vital need. If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation, call the church office at (304) 523-3505 or email us. Before you take your next drink of clean water, help us make a difference for the less fortunate who are dying from the water they drink.
