Blessing of the Backpacks

Bring your backpacks to worship on Sunday, September 2nd for a special backpack blessing! Whether your child is headed off to preschool or you are going to grad school, BUMC wants to get your school year off to a great start! Join us that day in Greenwich Park (adjacent to the church) at 10:00 am for Worship in the Park followed by a potluck picnic.


Backpack Drive

Help us extend the backpack blessings to students in need! BUMC is collecting new, filled backpacks to support Interfaith Works of Montgomery County. You can drop off backpacks and/or school supplies at church anytime on or before Sunday, August 19th  (look for the tubs in the Narthex). This will ensure we can deliver the backpacks to Interfaith Works in time for them to be distributed before the start of school. Backpacks are particularly needed in sizes for middle and high school students, but all are welcome, as long as they are new. Please fill the backpacks with any or all of the following supplies:  2-inch 3-ring binder • Dividers • Filler paper: wide ruled and college ruled (8-1/2 x 11 in) • Spiral notebook • Highlighters: yellow, pink and blue • Pens: black and blue • Colored pencils • Glue sticks • Pencil Boxes and Pouches • Scissors. Thank you!
