Servanthood

United Methodists continue to heed the lessons our founder, John Wesley, taught his followers: to live lovingly and justly as servants of Christ by healing the sick, feeding the hungry, caring for the stranger, freeing the oppressed; being a compassionate presence, and working to develop social structures that are consistent with the gospel.
 
We achieve this goal by serving throughout the world in different way. In 2008, church leadership designated four areas of ministry focus for all levels of the church.
  • Ministering with the Poor
  • Improving Global Health
  • Growing Vital Churches
  • Developing Christian Leaders
 
The church also has always been deeply committed to disaster relief and advocacy efforts. It is part of our Wesleyan DNA. All of these efforts to serve God also serve our neighbors and fulfill our mission to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
 
To learn more about Servanthood at BUMC, visit the Mission Blog, or email the BUMC Mission Coordinator, cathy@bozemanumc.org.

Vacation Bible School @ BUMC!

VBS at BUMC is an ecumenical ministry with Grand Avenue Christian, First Presbyterian, and Pilgrim Congregational churches.  It is an intergenerational, ecumenical “family party” with hundreds of kids, teenagers (over 50 youth assistants), parents, single adults and many, many older folks.  BUMC is the hub of activity with exciting, musical opening and closing ceremonies happening in the “kid-transformed” sanctuary each day.  Then groups of kids and their shepherds are off to the other close-by churches for activities centered on learning about God’s love… through games, crafts, drama, science… and each other!
 
VBS is happening NOW!  June 22-26th.  Stop by the BUMC Sanctuary at 8:45 AM or 11:45 AM to hear the music, watch the puppet shows, and witness God’s Love in Action!
