Recreation

Youth Sports, Group Fitness, and Family Activities

Mt. Bethel Recreation offers the perfect mix of instructional and competitive sports for children and youth ages four to 14. The most important components that we instill are learning fundamentals, team work, and having fun. So that our families can still enjoy time together, we limit practices to once per week and schedule one game per week during each sports season.

In addition to youth sports, the Mt. Bethel Christian Activity Center offers adults in the community a free workout facility complete with exercise equipment, weight room, and walking track. Members and non-members alike are also invited to take part in a variety of fitness classes.

In Jesus’ Name WE Play!
