Moving Closer, Moving Forward

We want every Middle School Student to have a person who knows them and a place they can belong at Barrington UMC, so we invite you to join “Merge.” It’s for students who want to grow their relationship with God through serving with others in JAM, Jesus and Me. “Merge” is a place to grow, learn and have fun together. We believe every single 6th-8th grade student can be a leader in huge ways. Come see where faith and fun merge!

Essential Elements of Merge include:

  • Preparation for mentoring and leadership roles at JAM
  • Learning together through bible study and conversation
  • Serving together at JAM and in other ways at BUMC and in the community
