BUMCSM

The Brentwood United Methodist Church campus is closed for now, but our ministry never stops. We're now offering online and limited in-person worship at 8:30 and 11 a.m.

We believe that students (6th - 12th grade) need and deserve a place to feel like they belong. Our programming offers students opportunities for community, discipleship, and missional living to give them active and vital roles in the Kingdom of God.

Sunday Mornings

Sunday Mornings are a time of worshiping with your family and spending time in the word. BUMCSM wants to invite students to print off the calendar and put it in a place where we can continue to strengthen our relationship with God. Use the calendar for daily growth and the lessons on Sundays to dig a little deeper. We hope that this is a portion of what you as a family do on Sundays and we cannot wait to be in person with our students as soon as we safely can be.

Sunday Nights

Youth worship and small groups are an opportunity for all students to gather in a community of worship, support, and belonging. We take time in our worship to connect with God and each other. We strive to form a sense of belonging in our small groups while cultivating accountability and discipleship. Our small groups consist of students of the same grade led by two adult volunteers. Our youth choirs also rehearse as a part of our regular Sunday Night programs.

6th Grade Confirmation

Confirmation is an opportunity for 6th grade students to claim their faith as their own. During a semester-long class, students will learn the basics of faith and theology as well as United Methodist and Christian history. This class concludes with the opportunity for each student to confirm their faith and join the church as well as an opportunity to be baptized. Confirmation has a combination of large group teaching by one of our clergy or youth ministers, as well as small groups. Confirmation, while a large milestone in one’s faith journey, is not a finish line. Rather it’s one part of the journey we hope to continue with each student throughout their time in BUMCSM.  Confirmation happens in the Fall semester.
