Youth

To help 6th through 12th graders develop into mature, committed disciples of Jesus Christ by providing programs and relationships that help them grow in key areas and by supporting their families. (See more information below pictures.)

Weekly schedule:

Sundays:

  • 9:30-10:30 am – Sunday School: A/V Club – In the large youth room beneath the Sanctuary.  We gather to watch and discuss films, video clips, current events, through the lens of scripture.  We talk about living out the story of God in the midst of our culture today.  Come and see (there will be doughnuts).
  • 5:00-7:30 pm – Youth Group – This time consists of dinner, games, worship, announcements, and a lesson together. We then break up into small groups for intentional discussion. This time is meant to serve as a place where Youth can grow closer to God and to one another through meaningful conversation and fellowship.

Wednesdays:

  • 6:30-7:30 pm – Wednesday Gathering – This time is to provide Youth with an intentional time for fellowship, strengthening old friendships while also making new ones. Each evening begins with a short devotional, followed by a fun activity. Typical activities for a Wednesday evening include packing care packages for the church college students, baking cookies for our prison ministry, or playing glow in the dark kickball.

First Fridays:

  • 6:00-8:00 pm – Super Awesome GameNight – Our monthly gathering for all BUMC Youth and their friends.  We gather in the gym to play elaborate, imaginative, high-energy games.  Every month has a theme (like Zombies, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Mission Impossible) and there’s always free pizza.

Sunday Night Dinners
Thanks to Michele Kirkpatrick, our youth dinner coordinator, we now have a new online sign up available for the upcoming youth dinners. Just click here and you can sign up. This is an automated system and it will help notify you when you have dinner and also allows you to post what you may bring so that everyone can see what was served in the weeks before their turn.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions.  We are always seeking to know how we can better serve our youth and their families.
