The Villagers is Bakerville Church’s youth small group. They are Young Adults with a mission! Their hearts and minds are steadfastly focused on Christ and the fellowship of friends. They are encouraged to share in the fun and study every Sunday with the B Adults Life Group at 10:45 a.m.
BUMC Youth are highly involved with a regional leadership-building ministry called Aventura. In the year 1981 a group of people, having recently attended a Tres Dias Retreat, felt that God was calling them to start a similar program for teens here in Connecticut. Aventura was born. Now over 30 years later Aventura is still building Christian Community and equipping the Saints of tomorrow. An Annual Cloistered Retreat is held with participation in prayer, the study of God’s word and having fun. A monthly “reunion” involves games and discussion of what God has been doing in teen’s lives. The Aventura program is for any teen seeking a closer walk with God, 14-20 years of age.
