We need each other as we journey through life. BUMC offers times for laughter, recreation, and prayer. Outreach, Recreation, Music, Youth, and Kid's Ministries allow adults and children to serve and play. Our hearts and our doors are open as we invite all to experience the Love of Christ through our fellowship.
Our children are everywhere! They lead in worship, serve in community kitchens and learn about God through Sunday School and other BUMC programs. Our children experience Jesus and His Love in a variety of ways from praying and serving others.
Children's Church (ages 3- 2nd grade):
Sunday at 10:50am Service
Life enrichment happens through recreation. Recreation is an important part of the church. It provides people an opportunity to develop not only personal strength of body and soul, but community in fellowship with other Christians.
The recreation and athletics ministry of Bartlett UMC is designed to be an affirmation that Christian Ministry is for the whole person--spiritually, mentally, physically, and socially. Recreation is an important part of the church. Life enrichment happens through recreation.
Youth/ Young Adult Ministry
The Bartlett UMC YOUTH MINISTRY is an active group of youth in Grades 7 through 12. We are involved in many activities including the Appalachia Service Project, Youth Choir, Foot Soldiers, Live Nativity, 30-Hour Famine, a semi-annual Crafts Fair, United Methodist Youth Fellowship (UMYF), and many other regular weekly services and activities.
Our YOUNG ADULT MINISTRIES have opportunities to serve during their college and career years after High School graduation!
The express purpose of the Music Ministry of Bartlett United Methodist Church is to proclaim the Gospel in music and to serve God and the community of faith with our talents. Ensemble Music opportunities are always available to new members, and we encourage everyone in the congregation to participate. The only requirement is to be an open participant with a true desire to be of regular and dedicated service. Music opportunities are available for children, youth, and adults.
The United Methodist Church states, "The mission of the church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world."
BUMC Outreach provides opportunities to serve and fulfill that mission statement. Bartlett UMC is involved in local, national, and international missions, and we have a spot for you to fit right in and serve.
Sunday school meets at 9:30AM on Sunday mornings. We currently have 14 adult classes that meet during this hour. Classrooms are located throughout the church in the Sanctuary Building, the Life Enrichment Center Building and the Chapel Building. There are classes for every age, as well as learning style. Some are classroom-oriented and some are discussion-based.
Wednesday Night Dinners are followed by a devotion at 6pm in the Sanctuary. (Aug.-May)
