Classes meet each Sunday from 10:00 - 10:45 a.m. BUMC is offering the following classes for youth in the 2017/18 school year:
6th Grade: Middle School Room (lower level)
Our 6th graders will be joining with the 4th and 5th graders as they explore Biblical stories and characters, church history, and theology through an interactive curriculum of short videos, activities, and shared conversation. Our teachers encourage students to explore their own questions of faith as part of these conversations.
Confirmation (7th & 8th Grade): Chapel (lower level)
Confirmation class is offered every other year, with our next class starting this fall. Classes take place once a week during the Sunday School time, concluding in June 2018, when the youth will have an opportunity to affirm their faith for themselves at a special worship service. In preparation, class participants will spend the year learning more about the Bible, their faith, and ways they can put their faith into action. In addition to class-time, participants are asked to attend a weekend retreat, several field trips, and complete a service project. Our Confirmation celebration is topped off after worship by a Confirmitzvah party to which the youth invite their family and friends for lunch and dancing & games led by a DJ.
9th - 12th Grade: Youth Room (lower level)
Our Sunday School class for older youth encourages them to deepen their faith through shared conversation as we discuss social issues and current events in light of the Bible and Christian teachings.
