All Saints Day
On November 3, you are invited to bring a photo of a person dear to your heart, who is now face to face with God. It could be a family member, a beloved teacher, a friend, a neighbor, a colleague. We will light a candle in their honor, ring a bell, and invite you to share their name, so we can give thanks to God for their life, and for ushering them into God's joyful presence forevermore.

"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."
