ribbons, and prizes for the cars in the best Christmas spirit! You’re welcome to join the

parade and light tour without decorating your car.  We will have Christmas tunes on Pastor Kyle’s drive-in FM station. More details to follow. 

Youth Group looking for items:

For those United Methodist Women who wish to donate to World Thank Offering, an informal offering will be collected on November 15 & 22.  A world globe will be placed in the back of the sanctuary for your donations.  Donations are used for worldwide missions of the Great Plains Conference UMW.  Thank you for your donations. 


BUMC is once again adopting a family for Christmas! Please go to the sing up link to pick an item or items to help us make sure our family has a special Christmas.  Items need to be purchased and dropped off by November 29.  If you do not have time or inclination to purchase, but want to make a donation, please donate through the church website and designate "Adopt A Family".  Thank you in advance for you generosity!
