PSALM 96: SING UNTO THE LORD A NEW SONG!  SING UNTO THE LORD ALL YE LANDS!

 

Fellow Christians, I seek your input for re-starting the music program in the FALL of 2022.  The covid pandemic continues to wax and wane; war, pestilence, new diseases, and a myriad of heartaches bombard our daily lives.  We need to rejoice in God’s love through the gift of music…. We need to be singin’, y’all!

 

So I welcome all singers, young and not so young, to help re-start the BUMC choir!  

 

I welcome instrumentalists to blend their talents with my keyboard gifts!

 

 “But Mr. Director of Music, I’m not musical”.  Then by all means voice your opinions of my work thus far as Director of Music and share changes you want me to implement….

 

Your input is vital, non-musical folks, because I cannot construct a music program if no one wants to hear it!  Amen? Amen!

 

Feel free to contact me at ziggy6870@gmail.com with your comments.  Love and Blessings to each of you!

 


SOWERS TO ALL THE WORLD

"Sowers" is the name given our team that has oversight for outreach efforts (historically called "mission;" we've reclaimed the ministry of being present to others in need, offering outreach that helps to make the world a more just and equitable place). 

We meet throughout the year to consider other hands -- on projects (food drives, 5K walks for a purpose, etc.) as well as to determine the "Mission Minutes" of the calendar year -- a way that we give financially to projects beyond the walls of Broadway and even Chicago, as we hope to make a small contribution to justice nationally and globally.

SPIRITUAL FORMATION / EDUCATION

We’ve discovered that, once we have been changed by God’s love for us, we want to learn more about who God is and how we are invited to be a part of God’s plan for justice in the world. We believe that process of learning is spiritual formation (some might call it Christian education, but we’ve found that learning is paired with living, so it goes beyond simply gaining knowledge).  Because our believing affects our living, we are constantly on the journey of examining what we believe. Our community life is made up of discussion where we find that truth, confessing where we doubt, and affirming how we feel part of the story of God’s liberating love.


YOUTH LOUNGE

Youth Lounge ended regular operations after the May 25, 2019 gathering. If you have any questions, please contact Jon.

EMPOWERING ALL IN MINISTRY

Our ministry teams document is not static: it is amended throughout the year as we seek to involve every member in ministry.

 

God has placed the members, each one of them, in the body, just as God desired. If they were all one member, where would the body be? But now there are many members, but one body.  ~ 1 Corinthians 12:15-21
