Intentional faith development is a core value at Burke.
We encourage everyone who attends BUMC to be intentionally seeking to know God better through Bible study, individual and group study, and spiritual conversation. We offer learning opportunities for everyone from our youngest to our older members.
This year's Sunday morning schedule includes worship at 9:30 AM with an hour of Sunday School starting at 10:30 AM for both children and adults. We hope this Dedicated Sunday School hour will allow for everyone- no matter your age- to have an opportunity to be a part of worship and be a part of a class in which you learn and grow your faith! We also have small groups throughout the week. Use the links below to find a class that works for you!

HOPE Small Group:
HOPE is a Bible study & discussion group for all adults. The group uses a wide selection of books and/or curriculum to complete Biblical based studies and examine contemporary religious/theological holdings and thoughts. HOPE is currently completing a study called “Eclipsing Empire: Paul, Rome, and the Kingdom of God,” and will transition to a book story called “Power of the Parable” in mid-October. Participants are invited to get a copy of the book so they can follow along with the study.
