Since 2010, First Presbyterian has partnered with Nativity Lutheran and Trinity
Episcopal to bring this vision to life. Bend Church (formerly First United Methodist
Church) joined the BYC in the fall of 2015 and we Grace First Lutheran joined in
early 2017. We are… 5 churches… 1 community + 5 traditions… 1 faith + 5 histories… and 1 future!


Here’s a glimpse into the Bend Youth Collective . . .

Middle and high school students connect with one another and an amazing team of leaders to talk about stuff that matters, serve our community, play indoors and out,
enjoy special events, go on retreats, have a ton of fun, and participate with God in opportunities to love our neighbors. Everyone is welcome, and students are always
encouraged to bring a friend!

High School BYC meets Mondays* from 7-8:30pm at the Boys & Girls Club Downtown. We hope Monday nights will be a place of rest and refreshment from your busy life –
we don’t ask anything of you except to show up and be yourself! We meet weekly to laugh, ask questions, and share in small groups about life and engage with the stuff
you all care about!

Middle School BYC meets Wednesdays* from 6-7:30 pm at the Bend Church (United Methodist). Wednesday nights are for having a fun and meaningful time together where
everyone gets to just be themselves! We’ll play games, get to know each other, make friends, talk about stuff middle school students care about, and share life in small

*BYC does not meet the last Monday or Wednesday of the month, so that we can meet with, encourage, and learn with our leadership team.

Reach out to me with any questions.
