  + Ash Wednesday Worship: 7:00 pm - Join us in the evening for worship, which in addition to the imposition of ashes, will also include communion, music, and prayers. All are welcome!



You are invited to sign up for one of our Lenten Small Groups which will be meeting once a week for five weeks beginning the week of March 1st.  We have groups meeting at BUMC and in homes around the area on various days of the week, so pick the location & time that works for you and sign up to journey with us. If you've never been part of a small group, it's a great way to dig into our theme for the season (this year it's the Beatitudes) while getting to know your fellow BUMCers on a deeper level.  Click here to sign up.



Looking for ways to make the season of Lent more meaningful? We invite you to follow one (or both) of our Lenten Calendars: 40 DAYS OF ACTION FOR GUN SAFETY, developed in collaboration with other area faith groups, shares ways to learn, pray, and take action to reduce gun violence. COINS FOR LENT, encourages us to save coins (you choose the amount) for everyday things in our homes that represent blessings from God and also to pray for those who go without. The coins you collect will be donated to UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief).
