The purpose of the youth ministry at Buncombe Street United Methodist Church is to partner with parents to engage, encourage, and equip our youth to become confident, Christ-centered servants.

Our youth programs are consistently based on Scripture and United Methodist doctrine.
We create a community of believers in an enthusiastic, joyful, loving environment.
We value a community that is intentional about welcoming others and building relationships.
We are dedicated to serving and teaching others.
We provide an atmosphere that is vibrant, spirit-filled, and exciting with a variety of programs and ministries.
We develop our youth through training and opportunities that empower them to become Christian leaders.
This youth-oriented worship experience is normally held on Sunday mornings at 10:00 AM. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we have changed it around a little. Traditionally, this is a time for 6th-12th graders to learn from the Bible, enjoy some fun entertainment, hang out with some awesome adults, and ultimately begin doing life together. We normally meet on the youth floor of the BSUMC Downtown Campus as a big group. But for the time being, Sunday Morning Youth Worship is now Sunday Evening Youth Worship. Both middle school and high school meet in Sisk Hall at the Downtown Campus on the following dates: March 14, March 28, and April 25. Middle school meets from 5:00 PM – 5:45 PM, and high school meets from 6:00 PM – 7:15 PM. Registration for each Sunday is required. Registration Links may be found in the calendar above by clicking on the appropriate dates. All Covid – 19 protocols will be in place. On holiday weekends, a Sunday Morning Devotion will be emailed out in the weekly eNews.

This big group time is all about having fun! This is a great way to introduce your friends to B-Street Youth. BigHouse meets approximately once per month during the school year on Sunday evening. Middle school (6-8 grade) meets from 5:30-7:30 PM and high school meets from 6:30 – 8:00 PM. A light dinner is included.
Each year, B-Street youth goes mobile for two long weekends. The Fall Retreat happens in October or November, and the Ski trip happens over a holiday weekend in the winter. We also host Walk with Christ, a student-led spiritual retreat over a weekend at the Downtown Campus. Walk With Christ normally happens in February or March.
Both high school and middle school participate in week-long mission trips during the summer. Middle school focuses on the Greenville area, and high school travels out of Greenville. Each trip is planned with service, worship, fellowship, and fun in mind.
We believe that a youth’s faith journey starts at home. B-Street youth strives to partner with parents by providing resources to help you on this journey.
