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). We meet from 5:00 pm to 7:30 pm on Sundays at BCUMC.
BRAVE and Biggby
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.
CURRENT STUDY: We are currently studying the Book of Revelation and realizing how the Old Testament of the Bible foreshadows to a lot of things that happen in the New Testament, as well as what is to come. In addition to this study, the Youth Group is busy making future plans for events.
MISSION TRIP: The Youth and Leaders are in the process of figuring out dates and location options for our Summer 2018 Mission Trip. Students are encouraged to bring their summer schedules to the youth group meetings so we can do our best to work around everyone’s busy schedules. As always, friends are welcome to join us and we will have fundraisers to help the kids with the financial aspect of mission work. Want to be part of this – come to Youth Group Sunday Nights at 5:00 pm to 7:30 pm.
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.
