Racial Justice Ministry

BUMC’s Racial Justice Ministry is prayerfully working towards dismantling racism as a way of living out our faith in the liberating power of Christ. We invite all to join us as we Listen, Learn, Act, and Advocate for racial justice.  Ready to get started? Check out the Racial Justice Resources that members of our congregation have found helpful in learning about these complex issues.

 

Re-Entry Update

Online Worship to Continue

You may be wondering when we will be returning to our building for in-person worship and other activities. BUMC is following the guidance of our denominational leadership and has formed a committee to address our physical return, under the heading of Re-Entering Well. The guidance from the bishop draws from guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and recommends a phased approach similar to what has been outlined by various government leaders. Our congregational committee is using this outline to plan for our own return to in-person activities.

 We are currently in Stage 1 of our Re-Entry Plan which is summarized below. A more detailed version of our Re-Entry Plan is currently being reviewed by our Church Council and will be shared in full with the congregation as soon as possible. Sunday worship services continue to be live-streamed and available on our BUMC YouTube Channel.

** Please note that we do not anticipate a return to in-person worship in the Sanctuary before the end of the calendar year.

Virtual VBS

Our week together was amazing and we thank everyone who was a part of our first ever virtual VBS! We hope you had as much fun as we did blasting off to Mars and beyond!  Even if you couldn't tune in during the week of VBS, it's not too late to join in. For more information about how to access BUMC's VBS videos, complete with singing, games, crafts, Bible stories and more, email Beth Reilly.
