MLK SERVICE DAY: Rise Against Hunger

Thank you to everyone who was part of our Rise Against Hunger MLK Service Day on Monday, January 20th at Saint Mark Presbyterian Church. Alongside volunteers from Saint Mark and Chevy Chase UMC, we packed 43,000 meals as part of RAH's campaign to end global hunger. It's not too late to help with this project! We are still seeking donations to help cover the cost of the meals.  Click here if you'd like to contribute. Want to find out more about the work of Rise Against Hunger? Click here.  Thank you!



Mark your calendars for this year's VBS, which is taking place June 22nd - 26th. Registration will open in March (March 15th for BUMC members and March 22nd for the community).  Children ages 3 through 5th grade are invited to register as participants and youth (rising 6th grade and up) and adults are needed to serve as volunteers. A link to our online registration site for participants and volunteers will be posted here on March 22nd. Register early to reserve your spot! 

Can't wait until June? Get a sneak peak of this year's VBS at our Winter VBS Celebration on Sunday, February 2nd at 10:00 am in the Sanctuary.  Come sing, dance, eat snacks, and decorate for our new theme, which will be revealed that day. If you have any questions, email
