Worship and Music

Here's some information you may find helpful if you're planning a visit:

Where are you located?
The main/south campus of BUMC is located just west of downtown Bremen on Plymouth Street (SR 106). We are exactly two blocks west of the stoplight at Plymouth and Center streets. Our 9:30am New Traditions Worship Service is held in our main campus sanctuary.

Where can I park?
Main Campus: Parking is available behind the church along Montgomery street; on Montgomery and Plymouth streets or in the parking lot at First Federal Savings Bank one-half block east of the church.

Student Center: A parking lot is located immediately east of the church or along the street.

How long is each worship service?
Typically each service lasts about 90 minutes.

What should I wear?
Whatever makes you comfortable. Some people dress up while others wear more casual clothes. Everyone is welcome and the most important thing is that you feel at home.

Is there a place for my children during the service?
Main/South Campus: A nursery is available for */infants while elementary-age children can attend Kids Own Worship which begins after the Children's Chat during worship. Busy Bags are also available if you would like your child to stay with you. "Kids Own Worship" is held for smaller children (toddler to 3rd grade) next to the Nursery, throughout the service. Children, 4th grade and older will remain in the worship service.

Do I have to be a member of Bremen United Methodist Church to take Communion?
Everyone is welcome at the Communion table — kids and adults; whether a member of this or any church. "Christ our Lord invites to his table all who love him; who earnestly repent of their sin and seek to live in peace with one another."

Here's what you can expect on Sunday morning:

9:30am - New Traditions
Our New Traditions worship service is especially designed to meet people at the point of their spiritual need. The objective, however, is far more extensive. We want folks to experience Jesus by going deeper than they can possibly imagine in their spiritual journey.

Children play a special role in the worship service. Following a Children's Chat with the pastor (or Captain Bob or Miss Rhonda), the kids (up to 5th grade) are dismissed to the lower level for Kids Own Worship (KOW time), a worship experience designed just for them.

Holy Communion is typically served on the first Sunday of the month. All are welcome to partake.

Our hope and prayer is that when you visit BUMC for the first time, you feel warmly welcomed; that you hear a word of encouragement and that you experience God's presence during worship.
