CONFIRMATION:

BUMC invites all students 7th -12th grades to participate in confirmation when they are ready and interested in being part of this deliberate time of faith preparation. Confirmation refers to the decision a person makes to respond to God’s grace with intentional commitment, publicly reaffirming their baptismal vows before the congregation and becoming members of the church. We're still in the planning phase for this fall, but if your student is interested in participating please let Katie Glick know so she can be in touch!

SCOUTING:

We have several scouting troops that meet at Burke Church. You can click HERE to learn more and get in touch with the leaders of those groups if your students are interested in getting involved!

SAFE SANCTUARIES

Burke United Methodist takes seriously the responsibility of protecting all of God's children. All of our staff and volunteers are trained using our Safe Sanctuaries policy.
