About BUMY:

BUMY (Bethel United Methodist Youth) is open to all youth in grades 6-12…you do not have to be a member of the church to participate in our activities. Typically, we follow the below schedule. But keep an eye on our calendar and our Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, for information on special events and outings that vary from month to month.

Sunday Mornings from 9:30am to 10:30am we meet for Sunday School in the Tom Davis Youth House, just next door to the church!

Sunday Evenings from 6pm to 8pm we meet for Youth Group-fun, fellowship, and friends! We have dinner and fellowship time on the first Sundays of the month, second and third Sundays of the month are filled with fun activities and small group time.

On the fourth Sunday of the month, we meet from 4pm-6pm for motel outreach. We meet at the Jefferson Hotel and end our time with dinner together.

Volunteers make BUMY possible. We rely on parents and other adults from the church to support our events and meetings. If you are interested in helping out or are looking for a way to get involved with the youth, contact Terri Kreitzer. 


Reaching Out:  Our youth are focused on making a positive impact on the community and the world. We serve throughout the year, both locally and nationally. Recently, we have been spending our time…

-gleaning and harvesting potatoes with Harvest of Hope/Society of Saint Andrew

-acting as a local branch of Teens Opposing Poverty (TOP) by providing toiletries and food to the residents staying at the Jefferson Hotel and the Rip Van Winkle Hotel

-raising funds and organizing the purchase of Thanksgiving meals and Christmas gifts for local families

-raising awareness of world-wide concerns, such as hunger


Is that it?  Nope!

We do more than bible study and mission work! We are always looking for new activities to try out in the community. We have lake days, trips to D.C., and weekend retreats! We are also connected to other churches within the Warrenton area and churches in our district to participate in activities with! If there is something you want to do, suggest it to the Youth Director, and we will see what we can do!


Together, as a group, we raise money to fund our missions and activities. Along with smaller fundraisers throughout the year, we host a 5k run and walk each fall. Moving 4 Missions is open to everyone in the community, regardless of age.

Moving 4 Missions 5K

Each fall we host a 5K race through the neighborhood surrounding the church to raise money for our mission work. This and other fundraising efforts help keep all of these trips and activities at no cost (or very little cost) to our youth and parents. We’re always looking for volunteers to help us plan and organize the event, as well as to help make sure things run smoothly that day. If you have any interest in helping us make this fundraiser a success (advertise, enlist sponsorship, provide a light meal for runners after the race, and more) please let us know!
