Fear Not Series

(Epiphany:  January 10 – February 7) 

This week we embark on a worship series entitled Fear Not.  This is a timely conversation to have, asking the question:  How might we live as people of courage and hope in the face of fear?  Without resorting to violence?  Without resorting to recklessness or carelessness?   We'll seek to understand how fear works, and how God's Spirit can empower us to face our fears with courage, growing us as more mature disciples of Jesus Christ.  Log in and join us!

Previous Worship Series

Visioning Series: 

Connect, Inspire and Respond

(Ordinary Time:  November 8-22) 

What does the future hold when we cannot see what is ahead? This sounds like our body politic as we wait in limbo for the election results. It also sounds like the people of God when walking through uncertain times.  While our eternal destination may be clear, we cannot see five years from now, or even one year from now.  Where are we going?

Over the next three Sundays, Pastor Brad's goal is to paint a picture of the coming year. Like a caterpillar inside a cocoon, God's work is to bring about a transformation. Our work is to connect, inspire, and respond. Please worship with us online over these next weeks to get a clearer picture of where we are headed, and how you and I can be a part of it. 

Discerning Democracy: Finding Grace in the Election

(Ordinary Time:  October 11- 25) 

Our society has lost civility—something election years make abundantly clear.  Can’t we all just learn to get along?  Yet, with the racial, economic and pandemic turmoil in our nation and our world, the stakes have rarely been higher.  The leaders we elect—and the policies they stand for—will shape our collective future.  How do we survive?  How do we choose?  Join us this October as we seek guidance from the scriptures, and from forgotten wisdom of the Methodist tradition.  We will learn to think, listen, speak and vote with faith, hope and love. 

"ELIJAH" Series

(Ordinary Time:  September 6-27) 

Life can be overwhelming.  Problems, sorrows and disappointments sometimes steal all our joy.  Life was no less harsh for the man Elijah.  He faced public ridicule, death threats, natural disasters, and even his own despair.  And yet…through it all, God used Elijah to bring hope and direction to a lost people.  How did he do it?  How can we do the same in our own lives?  Join us as we retell the amazing story of Elijah, that God might stir-up prophetic power in our own lives.

Trees have much to teach us about life together.  From how they raise their young, to how they communicate, the trees of the forest show us how to thrive in a web of sacred relationships.  In an age of consumer choice, mobility, and political and cultural divisions, what does it look like to be rooted in the Christian community?  Join us as we are grounded in love!

"STORIES" Series

Life is made up of moments that, over time, become stories.  Where we have come from, when we have experienced God, how we formed relationships with others…all of these and more come together and form the narrative of our lives, our church, our community, and our world.  Join us this July as our new pastors, Brad and Mandy, share their stories across both BUMC campuses, invite us to consider our own stories, and weave them together so that we can better see the greater God-story of which we all are apart.
