July 22 – Summer 2017 Mission Trip – Washington DC
Cost is $300 with a $50 deposit to reserve your spot.
Got summer plans? Want to do something to serve and give back? Want to have some fun and go experience a new place? Jesus says in the Bible that we will find the life we all desire when we give away our lives in service to others, find blessing when we bless others & find purpose when we help others see their lives have purpose and they’re worthy of God’s love. Come get some of that good life with us this summer by serving God and the people of Washington DC for a week in July!
Why Washington DC? Why again? Because Jesus is there and he loves the people of DC and has called us to come alongside him and love them too! DC is an important city for a number of reasons; it’s our nation’s capitol and the seat of our government, it’s the place where more decisions are made that affect our nation and world than any other place, it’s also a place where the extremely powerful and wealthy live right next to the poor and powerless, and Jesus is there in BOTH places so we want to go and be there too!

August 13 – Garden Blessing
Did you notice that BUMC has a new community garden space? Please come by (rain or shine!) and see us in the garden on today following the 8:45, 11:00am, and Crossroads services for a blessing of the garden. Join us on August 13 for light garden refreshments, and chance to learn how you can be involved! The garden is located behind the gravel lot in the field to the left of the preschool area, near the bridge to the Picnic Shelter, Boy Scout Hut, and Boone United Trail.
August 19 – Habitat for Humanity Work Day
Did you know Boone UMC has regularly scheduled work days with Habitat for Humanity? Affordable housing is one of the biggest issues facing our community. BUMC partners with Watauga Habitat for Humanity to help provide decent, affordable housing to low-income residents. The next work day is August 19. Willing workers of all skill levels are needed to help build homes. Sign up by following the QR code, or email Pastor Laura at email@example.com .
August 20 – Combined Service: ASU Welcome Service
Join us for a combined church service at 11:00am as we welcome back our ASU students as they return for the Fall Semester. David will be kicking off a new sermon series that Sunday: The Church. This series will re-examine the role of the church…and our role within the church.
August 27 – Back to School Picnic
It is time for our annual back to school picnic. As always, there will be hotdogs and hamburger and good things to eat. There will also be lots of things to do: music, games, inflatables, and crafts. Join us from 5:00 until 7:00pm for a great “good bye” to the summer, and an equally great “hello” to the new school year.
