Happy New Year!!

It is so hard for me to believe it is 2017 – the years keep getting faster and faster!  I hope your Christmas break was meaningful and that you had time to just hang with your kiddos!  There is lots of stuff coming up at BUMC! Below are some dates and info for various children’s events happening. 

  • Sunday school continues for ages 3-5th grade!  We are focusing on Jesus and learning about his ministry and how it began- bring your kids!
  • Parents, there is an amazing class starting on the 15th about “this thing called Life”.  This class would be a great class for parents to go to and get some Jesus talk in! 
  • Mom’s – need a ladies night? – January 19th we are headed to the movies for a chick flick – “The Book of Love”! The time will be published as soon as the theater sets it!
  • Dodgeball Tournament for 3rd-5th graders!  January 20th at BUMC – form a team and come out or come solo and we will put you on a team!  This is done with Kidz of Faith and is open to the community! (kids can have their teams dress up!) Please download these Flyer and registration forms.

Mission Focus for January and February – toilet paper!  Please donate toilet paper to be donated to Church Under the Bridge! This mission focus runs from Jan – Feb. 12th

Thank you to all who donated for the Heiffer Project – our kids donated a flock of hope to a family in Africa so they could start their own source of income!  Way to go BUMC KIDS!

CHURCH-ON-THE-GO

Church on the Go was created for families who can’t make it to church due to extra curricular activities.  We understand that extra curricular activities require extra time on the weekend.  How can church fit in when we are pulled so many different directions?  Our church on the go kit is designed to help you praise and worship God wherever you are!  Try this with your family or invite other team members to join in!  God is everywhere so make sure you take God with you and set aside that time for Him.  The goal is to worship God together in a way that feels appropriate and links the family to the church family worshiping on Sunday.

We suggest setting aside 10 minutes in your schedule and turning off all distractions!  If you have a Christian song on your phone use that to set the mood for your worship time.  Have fun!

We are praying for you and your time with God!  See you in church next weekend!

THOUGHT FOR FAMILIES

Parents, what are your children and others learning from your worship?  Do they see the same excitement as when you go to a basketball game?  Do they see you prepare for worship as you do for a vacation?  Do they see you hungry to arrive, seeking the face of the Father?  Or are others seeking the face of the Father while you’re seeking the face of your wristwatch?  Do they see you content to leave the way you came?  They are watching.  Believe me.  They are watching.

Do you come to church with a worship-hungry heart?  Our Savior did. May I urge you to be just like Jesus? Prepare your heart for worship. Let God change your face through worship.  Your heartfelt worship is a missionary appeal. Let others hear the passion of your voice as they see the sincerity in your face, and they may be changed.  I know you will be!  -Max Lucado
