Serenity Prayer Series
This Sunday, we will conclude our series on the Serenity Prayer as a way to discern choices and actions in this New Year. The prayer goes like this: Grant us the serenity to accept the things we cannot change, the courage to change the things we can, and the wisdom to know the difference. This week, we discuss "the wisdom to know the difference."

New Bible Study Opportunities for the New Year
If you want to grow in your faith and get to know people better this New Year, there is nothing like group bible study to help you deepen and broaden your faith and better connect with others. Beginning on Sunday, February 4, we will begin two new bible studies. The study of the gospel of John will take place for eight weeks from 10:45–11:45am, and the Disciple 2 study of Genesis/Exodus will take place for 16 weeks from 12:30–2:00pm on Sundays. Please see Stephen Austin or Larry Wright or Pastor Jeff for details and check out the sign-up sheet in the social hall.

"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."
