Bozeman United Methodist Church is a diverse community of Christians who affirm that all persons are made in the image of God, and thus all persons have a sacred worth and dignity. We range across the political spectrum, and we welcome people of all ages, races, sexual orientations, gender identities, family configurations, economic standing, and mental and physical abilities. Everyone is welcome as we journey together following Jesus.
About Us
At an all church meeting, BUMC adopted a values and purpose statement. Three of those values are:
Every Person Is Sacred. We believe every person is created in the image of God and is of sacred worth. To believe otherwise is to be isolated from the world and from God.
Risky Faith. We take these risks to be intellectual and faithful, to build bridges with strangers of diversity, to be forward-thinking and still Biblical, and to be Methodist and more than Methodist.
Justice-seeking Community. We show God’s love to the world through actions that alleviate suffering and break down barriers in the world through service and justice.
An opportunity to live out these values is before us.

We are a Stephen Ministry Congregation!

Stephen Ministry is a lay caring ministry founded in 1975. It is used by 13,000 churches in over 170 Christian denominations throughout the world.  More than one-and-a-half-million people have had a Stephen Minister providing one-to-one Christian care during their tough times.  Those receiving care may be experiencing life challenges like divorce, job loss, chronic or terminal illness (their own or someone else’s), or other significant experience causing grief, loneliness, fear or anger.

Bozeman UMC became a Stephen Ministry congregation in 2014. At present, we have over 20 Stephen Ministers led by 4 Stephen Leaders. Since that time, we have cared for more than 50 hurting people.

To donate by text, a donor simply:
  1. Text the amount they’d like to give to your text-to-give number (e.g. $50).
  2. If a person has donated by text before, they’ll receive a text in response confirming that their gift has been received successfully and they’re done.
  3. If it’s the first time a person is donating by text, they’ll be sent a message that says, “It looks like you are a new giver; to begin: (link provided). It will be a link to the church’s online giving page. Clicking on the link they will be asked to supply their payment method (credit card, debit card, or bank account). This payment source will then be linked with their phone number so that, in the future, all they will need to do is text in the amount. (They will not need to re-enter their payment information.)
  4. If the donor didn’t specify a fund by keyword, donations will automatically go to the default fund in Breeze. Example giving by keyword: $50 missions Note: Donors can only give to one fund at a time.

“So let’s strive together for the things that bring peace and the things that build each other up.” – Romans 14:19.

As kids (called Heroes) experience these stories through music, drama and storytelling, games, arts & science and even snacks – they’ll learn that Heroes are called to Follow Jesus, Help Others, Work Together, Listen to God, and Show Grace! And, best of all, they’ll be invited to answer the call at VBS, at church, at home, and every area of their lives.
