Moving Closer, Moving Forward
This 2-year program during the school year prepares 7th-8th grade students for full membership in the church. This course teaches the basic beliefs of the faith, theology, and the responsibilities which come with a Profession of Faith and Church membership. A special service of worship in June is designated to celebrate this rite of passage into mature faith and full membership for all 8th graders who complete the course. The class meets one Saturday a month in addition with overnight retreats, and lock-ins.
Finding your way in faith and life
Our weekly Sunday Barrington United Methodist Youth (BUMCY) features a diverse mix of meaningful activities for youth. We spend time every Sunday 12:00-2:00 p.m. sharing lunch and learning how to share ourselves through our gifts and stories.
BUMC’s Youth Summer Mission Trip invites high school students to go out and “be the hands and feet of Jesus” through missions in the summer. These life-changing growth experiences allow youth to learn teamwork, purpose, and connect to Christ’s call to love all people.
