Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.
Confirming Faith in God
All 6th grade students at BUMC are invited to participate in Confirmation 2019. This class is intended to help prepare students to make a profession of faith, make a commitment to discipleship, and join the church as full members. Confirmation is Milestone #5 at BUMC and is a significant step in the faith journeys of our students.
This opportunity for our students to explore faith and decide for themselves what they believe is a special time in their life. Confirmation usually meets on Sunday nights 5-6:45pm. For more information, contact Holly Fisher ( ).

*A Friend in Faith is an adult that your student may choose to partner with on their journey of faith. You will ask this person to attend the lunch with your student on Sunday, February 3, complete a service with them on their own, and hopefully attend the Confirmation Service. A Friend in Faith is a personal relationship (preferably not the parent), so I encourage you and your student to prayerfully consider someone who will support and encourage them through the Confirmation process and beyond. You will be asked to turn in the name of your Friend in Faith and their email address on the registration form or by email to Holly Fisher ( ) by January 20.
