What to expect at BUMC

Often visiting a new location, especially a church, is intimidating, we understand. So, if you are thinking about visiting BUMC, we’d love to have you!  We want you to feel welcome and comfortable; hopefully you will feel right at home— as part of the family of God. The information below may help answer some questions before you come.

How should I dress?
We are pretty casual at BUMC. Many come to worship wearing jeans, but there are a few people who enjoy dressing up. Either way is ok!

Parking
Enter through the driveway closest to the church building and flow around into the parking lot. When you are ready to leave, you will exit by using the driveway furthest from the buildings. Handicap parking is available.

What do I do when I arrive?
We encourage you to arrive about 10-minutes before the service begins so you can get comfortable and prepare your heart for worship. There are two entrances, the front double-doors or the entrance in the back close to the parking lot.  At either entrance you will be greeted by a smiling face and a bulletin with the order of worship. Children are encouraged to attend the Service with their families and will be called to participate in a message just for them during our time together.

Is there a separate place to take my child?
We encourage families to worship together and it’s ok if your child has the wiggles.  They are children!  There is a special message given to them after the scripture reading.  After the message children 4 and older are welcome to attend Sunday School where they will learn and grow in the Word of God with teachers who have been Safe Sanctuary  approved.

Worship Style

Worship is blended with Contemporary Music and Traditional Hymns.  Lyrics are projected onto the wall at the front of the church.

Scripture and Sermon

Scripture is read followed by a children’s message and then Pastor will deliver a sermon.

Healing Prayer

At the conclusion of every service, an invitation to come to the altar will be given for those who would like healing prayer by the BUMC Prayer Team. These are individuals will listen to your needs for healing, be it physical, emotional or spiritual and then intercede on your behalf.
