Young Family Ministry serves as a group at BUMC for families who have children ranging in age from birth through 5th grade. Our events are comprised of a mix of fellowship, service and spiritual opportunities. This group, and its events, allows families with young children to deepen their relationships with God so that they may become more fully involved in BUMC and the body of Christ.
You don’t have to be a member of the congregation to participate. Our activities are a welcoming and relaxed place to try out a small group at the church. Come grow with us!
For more information, please contact the Young Families Ministry Coordinator, Jen Schaber.
To kick off 2021 we're going to try something new for our Parents Night In on zoom. In addition to time catching up we'll do TED & Theology. You will watch a popular and insightful TED talk, listen to a 5-10 minute devotion, and then we'll discuss as a group the talk and how it relates to our faith. Each month we'll do a different TED Talk covering a wide range of topics. You can join any or all of them.
