We are looking at Fall 2020 options for a hybrid worship model or small group model.
We would also like you to take this short survey
on your (Re)Entry Plan.
 
Read BUMC (RE)Entry Plan 2020

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 vales is before us.

Community & Fellowship Opportunities
 
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.

We are a Family Promise Volunteer Host Congregation
About five times each year, for one week at a time, each host congregation provides a place to sleep, meals, and compassionate hospitality for up to four homeless families. Volunteers are the core of the Family Promise network. At each site, volunteers cook meals, socialize with guests, play with children and stay overnight. They also help care for the Day Center as well as fundraising activities and guest events.
Local agencies refer families to our network. All guests are screened by our professional staff to ensure there is no active substance abuse, risk of violence, or serious mental illness. Family Promise families work actively with our case manager as well as local social service agencies to find employment, childcare, affordable housing — allowing them to develop the skills they need to regain their independence, and keep it!

BUMC Missions

What is Missions? United Methodists continue to heed the lessons our founder, John Wesley, who talked about love of God and love of neighbor being hand-in-hand; living into what Jesus was teaching us.
 
Jesus said “Here’s what love of neighbor looks like: you saw me hungry and you fed me. You saw me thirsty and you gave me a drink. You saw me sick and you took care of me.” That is what love of neighbor looks like and those neighbors are in your neighborhood, community, state and all over the world.
 
Our church is deeply committed to combating homelessness, hunger, poverty, global health, education, disaster relief and social justice advocacy efforts. It is part of our Wesleyan DNA. All of these efforts to serve God also serve our neighbors and fulfill our mission to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
