Online Worship to Continue Through the End of August
You may be wondering when we will be returning to our building for in-person worship and other activities. BUMC is following the guidance of our denominational leadership and has formed a committee to address our physical return, under the heading of Re-Entering Well. The guidance from the bishop draws from guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and recommends a phased approach similar to what has been outlined by various government leaders. Our congregational committee is using this outline to plan for our own return to in-person activities.
Our BUMC Re-Entry team has proposed and our Church Council has affirmed that BUMC will continue online worship through the end of August. In the coming weeks we will clearly communicate if there are opportunities for small groups to gather outside on church grounds or in other locations, but the church building remains closed to in-person activities, and worship services will continue to be broadcast online. If portions of the service are filmed from the church they will include minimal staff and volunteers who will maintain social distance and safety precautions. We will share the full plan for re-entry and other information as soon as it becomes available. Please contact Rev. Jenny or Jack Fisher if you have questions about our re-entry process.
Our week together was amazing and we thank everyone who was a part of our first ever virtual VBS! We hope you had as much fun as we did blasting off to Mars and beyond! Even if you couldn't tune in during the week of VBS, it's not too late to join in. For more information about how to access BUMC's VBS videos, complete with singing, games, crafts, Bible stories and more, email Beth Reilly.
BUMC's Mask Ministry

There are two ways you can stay connected during this time of COVID-19 quarantine.
