A Thinking Faith and Caring Hearts At 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. >> More
The Church Regularly Leaves the Building We 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. >> More
