We at BHUMC want to provide many opportunities for our children and youth to participate in our worship services. One way is through our Acolyte Program. Children 8 years old and up are encouraged to take part. They often begin worship by lighting the altar candles and Christ candle and then help us to remember the light of Jesus into the world as we leave by extinguishing the candles and carrying the light out before us.
Acolytes also participate in other ways as well during baptisms or induction of new members. We as a church want our young people to know that they are valued members of our church family.
