Alpha Youth Ministry

One of the "signature" ministries we are known for in the community, Alpha is designed for youth from 6th to 12th grade. Meet us at the Student Center on Sundays from 5:30 to 7:30pm for food, fun and worship. We also plan mission trips and camps.

Indentured Student Auction to raise funds for our mission trip is our May Event.

Do You Even Play Bro? Alpha is looking far and wide to add to our worship band! If you play an instrument, sing, or just like being on stage join us Sunday Evenings as we begin to get a band together. Contact Jalysa for details.

Connect Up!

Designed for preschoolers to 5th grade. We meet at Student Center every Wednesday (September thru April) from 6:00 to 7:30pm. April 2, 2014 will be our last session until September. We start out all together, then split up into age-appropriate groups. Our mission is to introduce children to the Bible and move them into a deeper relationship with God.

A big THANK YOU to all the servants that gave countless hours to make the Connect Up Program a success this year. We are so grateful to have good "cookers." You are all
such a blessing to our children!

Day Care

The United Methodist Church has been providing quality, loving child care in Bremen for 21 years. We are open Monday thru Friday, 6:30am to 5:30pm for children, newborns to 9 years-old. For more information or to arrange a visit, contact the Director (now in her 18th year) Beth Fraine, at 574-546-2275.

Our Purpose and Philosophy

The Bremen United Methodist Church has extended its mission to the community by offering quality day care for working parents of infants and young children. A before and after school program is offered for school age children.

Our staff helps both children and their parents feel positive about day care. The staff and parents need to work together as a team to help the children grow to be happy individuals. Our goal is to provide a safe, loving, fun, Christian environment for the children in the community. We offer a program that balances the physical, social, emotional, and cognitive needs of the children. The day care has a relaxed atmosphere where each child can grow and learn at his or her own pace.
