Worship Services, 8:15, 9:45, 11:05
Worship is the heart of our life as a community of faith. Families that worship together are teaching their children what it means to be a people of faith. BUMC embraces children as part of the worshiping community. When you attend worship with your child, be sure to ask the ushers for a Children’s Bulletin. These correlate with the Pastor’s sermon, and give children an opportunity to explore the content of the sermon and the service on their developmental level.
Nursery (Infants – 3 year olds)
BUMC Nursery offers tender, loving, care for the youngest attendees of our church during Sunday morning worship and Sunday School/Small Groups. (Children may “graduate” to Sunday School classes at 9:30am if age three before August 15 and are fully potty trained.) Please provide necessary items, such as bottles, diapers, and a change of clothes. Label every item with your child’s name. For more information contact Gwen Sass at
Godly Play (4 year olds – Kindergarten)
Godly Play is a unique method of religious instruction that allows for a great deal of self-discovery by both the children and the teachers. The over-arching goal of Godly Play is to teach children how to “come close to God all by myself.” The stories follow the pattern of the church year, and include sacred stories, parables, and liturgical action. The volunteer teachers are trained in the material so that there is a consistency teaching method every Sunday. Your child will experience the first part of worship with you and when designated in the bulletin, will bring them to Godly Play in room C318. Please pickup your child promptly at the conclusion of the service. For more information contact Sarah Cage at .
Sunday School 9:30am – 10:45am
Our preschool-4th Grade Sunday School classes use the Deep Blue curriculum, produced by Cokesbury, the publisher of The United Methodist Church. The curriculum works together with the Children’s Bible we give to our 3rd graders and our children have loved the engaging way it teaches each story. Sunday School is our primary point of connection for children and offers them an opportunity to learn and grow in God's word and experience His love through community. We strive to keep our classes small (less than 20 with 2 adults and occasional 1 teen leader) to build relationships, foster community, and keep all children safe. We would love to have you join us Sunday morning at 9:30! If you are new to BUMC, please stop by the Connection Point outside the Chapel area in the C-building to get connected!
