"My family started going to the BUMC when our kids were born and more recently, we've become active members. We find this church has a great sense of community, meaningful outreach programs, an engaging pastor, a really wonderful 9:30am worship with an amazing band!, and a great Sunday school program (taught in a Montessori style called Godly Play) with teachers that our young kids are happy to see each week. Going to this church each week really brings our lives into focus in a relaxed and thoughtful way."
