Gun Violence Prevention Ministry


BUMC's Gun Violence Prevention Ministry works closely with other local congregations to raise awareness about the incidence of injuries and death from gun violence in our community. We are also actively engaged in seeking ways to change our local and national laws to prevent future tragedies.


BUMC hosts a monthly rush hour vigil (7:30 - 9:00 a.m.) on Old Georgetown Rd to raise awareness among people who are driving by our church. Signs and coffee are provided and participants are welcome even if they can only stay a short time.  Dates for these vigils and other GVP activities are noted in our monthly newsletter, The Messenger.  For more information, contact Susan Bender (
