At BUMC, we believe in “Thinking Orange.” That is—combining the influences of the light of the church (yellow) with the heart of the home (red) to have a greater influence on the next generation. We invite you to partner with us.

We believe that learning God’s Word should never be boring, but that their time with us should be the best time of their week. We seek to create a fun and loving environment where each child is accepted for who they are and is engaged with learning the timeless truths of Scripture in a new and relevant way.

  • Vacation Bible School - VBS-July 15 - 19, 2019

    Your children are invited to vacation Bible school! Through a fun-filled time of learning and experiences, children will discover that neighbors are more than the people who live next door. This interactive VBS series will lead children deeply into five Bible stories focused on God’s care and compassion for neighbors close at hand and around the world.

    Who Is My Neighbor? will take children on a journey as they discover more about God’s great love and what it means to be a neighbor and to live out our faith.

    Join us as we discover neighbors near and far! Click here to download a copy of the registration form.


    Wednesdays at 6:30 to 8:00 PM (September thru April)

    Awana is one of the highlight ministries here at BUMC. Specially crafted for kids in the K-5 range, this is one weekly event you don’t want to miss!!

    The night is broken up into three 30-minute segments:

    Sanctuary time—Kids have a chance to earn Awana bucks through crazy games and hear a story from God’s Word.

    Classroom time—Kids get their own books they work through at their own pace. The memorization of Scripture is key here.

    Gym Time—We make sure they are nice and tired when you pick them up!

    Kids can always earn Awana bucks just for being there and get the chance to exchange them for cool prizes every 6 weeks or so at the Awana store.

    Stop by this Wednesday and try it out!
