There are now two ways to attend worship at BUMC! We are back in-person in the Sanctuary on Sundays at 11:00 am. You can also tune in at washmorefeet.org/livestream to watch online. Don't forget to subscribe to our YouTube channel (BethesdaUMCMD).
BUMC offers two worship services on Sunday mornings (September - May). Our 9:00 am Praise Band Service features a variety of music from contemporary Christian to rock/pop and some new arrangements of what we call "church favorites," aka "old hymns." Our 11:00 am Service with Organ & Choir has a more traditional feel with the sounds of our 4-manual organ, our talented handbell choir, and the 30+ voices of our Sanctuary Choir.
While the flavor of these services is quite different, they both include a time of prayer, a children's message, a scripture reading, and a message from the pastor. We also celebrate communion on the first Sunday of the month at both services. To round out the morning schedule, Sunday School for all ages is offered between the services from 10:00 - 10:45 a.m. We invite you and your family to come and join us on Sunday morning. We'd love to have you be part of our church family!
During the seasons of Advent and Lent, we add a third service, Evensong, to our weekly schedule (Sunday evening at 6:00 pm). This service is more reflective in nature and features acoustic music.
In the summer (Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day weekend), we worship together in a single service at 10:00 am.
