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. 

Confirmation for 2021 is underway! If you have a student interested for next year, be sure to let Katie Glick know.
