At BCUMC, our youth group name is BRAVE - which stands for Bringing Redemption And Value to Everyone. BRAVE is for both Middle School and High School students (6-12th grades).

The idea of BRAVE comes from Luke 15, a passage of scripture that displays this idea of redemption and value. The scripture includes the parables of the lost sheep, the lost coin, and the prodigal son. Each parable includes something being lost, found, and then celebrated upon its arrival back to where it belongs. However, in the parable of the prodigal son, unlike a sheep and a coin, the son is able to come to his father with a presentation for why he was lost. Yet, when he comes back to his father, the father does not even recognize his sons speech, but instead acknowledges the son's value and worth. At BRAVE we want to be a community that champions and celebrates this redemption and value in the lives of all people.


BRAVE and Biggby

At BRAVE this fall we will dive into the character or Jesus. What He did during His 3 year ministry, and why! Please be praying for these kids, for questions to be asked and answered and that they encounter Jesus in big and new ways!

Our high schoolers meet at Biggby on Tuesday evenings to dig deeper into the Fruit of the Spirit study. Students are encouraged to bring questions to the table so we can help each other figure out how to acknowledge the Holy Spirit in and around us.
