Worship Service Options for You

We have three different services for you to choose from. Two traditional services at 8:15 and 10:45 in our Sanctuary, as well as a contemporary service at 10:45 in our Community Center featuring a Praise Band in a relaxed atmosphere.  We want everyone to be able to worship in an environment that is comfortable and more importantly connects them to God. Learn more about our Worship Services here. 

Can You Meet Our Pastors?

Absolutely you can!  On the second Sunday of each month one of our pastors has a Coffee With The Pastor get together for all those who would like to learn more about our church and doctrine.  It is an informal gathering where you can learn about BUMC and connect on a more personal level.  To learn more about Coffee with the Pastor click here.   To learn more about our Pastors and staff click here.

What Should You Wear

The most important thing is that you are comfortable, so we’d say dress down or dress up… whatever you like. You’ll find that most people simply dress for comfort so you’ll see anything from shorts and tennis shoes to dresses, suits and lots of jeans.  

Where Do Your Kids Fit In?

Our nursery accepts infants through 5 years old and is open during all 3 services.  The older kids through 5th grade can attend a Sunday School class for their age group from 9:30 to 10:30 and are welcome at all services.  Both the 10:45 Contemporary and Traditional services have a special children’s time. Youth attend regular worship services and have a special praise and worship service on Wednesday nights.  Click here to learn more about our Aftershock Youth program.

Where Do You Fit In?

We have so many Sunday School classes and ministries that you can choose from to be involved in.  From Sunday morning studies, to mid-week studies and on-going ministries you are sure to find your passion to serve and a service to attend.  Check out our Get Plugged In page here to find out more about our ministries.
