At BUMC, Youth Are NOT the Church of Tomorrow.Instead, they’re a very visible part of the church TODAY. Youth regularly help lead worship, hang out and learn together, and set an example that inspires and challenges all of us. >>
Young Adults Call BUMC Home, Too.Whether it's a getting together in Bethesda for Theology on Tap, or a work day with Habitat for Humanity, YA.com (our young adult ministry) meets for fun, service, and faith-filled conversation. >>
A Thinking Faith and Caring HeartsAt BUMC we encourage people to dig deep into the Bible, ask honest questions, look after one another in love, and engage their faith with head, heart, and hands. >>
The Church Regularly Leaves the BuildingWe have a mission statement "Wash More Feet" that reminds us daily that following Christ makes us servants of others. Hands-on mission opportunities abound for children, youth and adults. >>

TO VIETNAM & BACK: Rev. Ron and Phuong Bui were in Vietnam in February delivering 408 bikes thanks to the generosity of our congregation and friends of BUMC. You can catch up on their amazing two week adventure on the God's Morning, Vietnam blog. We raised over $20,400 through our Christmas Eve offiering which was used to support the work of the Children of Vietnam Foundation and allow children in remote areas a chance to get to school.
