Upcoming Events at BUMC...

Neighbors: a new series about loving the people around us

Weekends in May & June
"Last fall, our Lead Team took a two-day retreat to pray and vision together. One of the things we did was watch the documentary, “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” about the life of Mr. Fred Rogers. His story led us into a discussion about the Great Commandment, which is to love God and love your neighbor. When I returned to BUMC, I stood by the statue of the hands for a few moments. As I looked across the street at the surrounding homes and businesses, I was convicted that I did not know my neighbors very well. I was just too busy! It occurred to me that the way we carry out the mission of disciple-making begins with being a good neighbor. But you can’t be a good neighbor if you don’t know your neighbor. This realization in my own life has led me to understand that neighboring cannot be accidental. It must be intentional! I need your help to be a better neighbor. We need God’s help to become better neighbors. In two weeks, we’ll begin an 8-week series called “Neighbors,” during which we will have weekly practical challenges to be more intentional neighbors in our community, for the glory of God! I hope you will join us in this exciting new series!" – Dr. Davis Chappell

Father-Daughter Dance

Friday, April 26, 6:30 p.m., Haney Hall
"I have three daughters who enjoy getting dressed up and dancing. We all have busy schedules, which make it tough for us to have intentional time together. The BUMC Father-Daughter Dance has been an annual event that we all look forward to doing together. Sometimes we attend their school’s Father-Daughter Dance too, but the girls insist upon attending the BUMC event because of the great DJ, fantastic crowd, posing at the photo booth, seeing their friends, fun snacks, and a lot of memories. Plus, it's a rare opportunity to participate in a room full of dads and daughters trying to do the Cha Cha Slide together." – Mark Morrell


Woven: A Women's Conference with Heather Dixon

Saturday, May 4, 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
"Almost two years ago, I received my diagnosis of Vascular Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. There is no cure or treatment for vEDS, but amid that diagnosis, God reminded me that I was not the first to walk this earth with the awareness that death was on its way. Jesus had three years to fulfill His earthly mission. He accomplished His purpose and lived with a determined mindset, one that was eternally-focused. That's the choice I wanted to embrace – not living with a terminal perspective, but living with a determined attitude. This is how God gives purpose to our pain. We choose determined living, and He fills us with joy. I want women to look for ways that they can embrace a pattern of determined living every day. Be determined about making this pattern a habit, and you'll be well on your way to living like Jesus." – Heather Dixon


Stephen Ministry

If you or someone you know is in need, call the free and confidential hotline at 615.577.4881.
"After 20 years of trying to find a transplant for my wife and otherwise extend her life, I again found myself in a lonely hospital room feeling isolated and afraid. Ministers and church members had been faithfully visiting me, but this day, our pastor felt my grief and fear. That was when she suggested I consider a Stephen Minister. Stephen Ministers are not psychologists, but Christian men and women who are trained to walk alongside people experiencing such things as grief, divorce, job loss, or chronic or terminal illness. I had never considered meeting with a Stephen Minister before, but in my fear and loneliness, I agreed. During the next two years, during which time my wife passed away, my Stephen Minister and I met weekly to discuss grief, faith, and life. I am grateful for my Stephen Minister, who faithfully walked with me during this challenging time." – Anonymous

Volunteer on Easter

Help us provide a warm and welcoming atmosphere for Easter worshipers as we celebrate Christ's resurrection from the dead! Christ's death and resurrection mean that all are welcome at the table of our Lord, that all hurts are being healed, that all broken relationships are being reconciled. That is a joy that we can't help but share with those who might need to hear it, and we hear so much better when we feel seen, valued, and welcomed into a worship space. So let's do this for our neighbors and guests and members alike this Easter!



Our address is 309 Franklin Road in Brentwood, Tenn.  We are just south of Old Hickory Boulevard (I-65 exit 74B).  Click here for directions.  Click here for a facility map.
