PROGRESSIVE DINNER

You can’t celebrate Christmas in the BUMC youth program without a Progressive Dinner. It’s just not proper. Join us for this great youth tradition this Sunday evening as we travel to different homes in the church community to enjoy appetizers, dinner, and dessert! We end the night back at the youth building to have a Christmas game together. This event is a staple for our program and we would love to have every single one of you join us for this wonderful Christmas celebration! Friends are always welcome to our youth events, but make sure you sign them up.

RSVP FOR PROGRESSIVE DINNER

PARENTS! WE’VE GOT A SPOT FOR YOU, TOO! 

Looking for other parents who know what it’s like to raise a teenager in 2022? Each Sunday morning, as the students gather together for their own service at 11:15 a.m. in the Student Building, there is a Sunday School class specifically for parents of teens running at the same time in a classroom in the Fellowship Hall building. This is an excellent space for parents to build community with each other while fostering their own spiritual growth. If you have any questions regarding this class, please reach out to one of the parents, Chris Carrollton, who leads this group at Kenesay10@gmail.com.
