January 1 – March 31: The 2019 Diaper Drive !!!
In 2015, Boone United Methodist Church heard about the need for diapers in our community, and the Diaper Drive was born. The response was overwhelming! Last year, the Drive collected over 5,500 diapers (A diaper wall was built and it reached a height of seven feet high by six feet wide!) Our donation to the Children’s Council’s last year, helped them to reach their goal, “…to ensure every child in our community has enough diapers to remain clean, happy and healthy.”
Hopefully, this year’s Diaper Drive will be even more incredible. Our goal this year is to collect over six thousand diapers before March 31. That, my friend, will be a lot of diapers. But as is the case with diapers, they go fast! Every few seconds someone, somewhere in Watauga County is ready for a clean diaper. If you have any questions about Boone UMC’s Diaper Drive, please contact Colette.
February 3: Explore BUMC
New to Boone UMC? “Explore BUMC” is a great way to get connected and to learn more about Boone UMC. This is a four week class starting on February 3 and will continue each Sunday through February 24. Join Pastors Lory Beth, Jeff, Vern and Laura as we explore our vision, core values, measures and ways to connect in service. Sessions will be held after the 8:45am service in room 125.
February 4 – Having Difficult Conversations
This 4-week class will be an opportunity to learn and practice how to approach difficult and crucial conversations we might encounter in our personal, professional and public lives. In a current climate where we have forgotten how to “agree to disagree” with one another, this series will prepare us to respectfully and courageously embrace these conversations. We will learn techniques from books, the Bible and each other. We will create safe space to put into practice techniques that we have learned. To learn more about this class, please click here.

February 22 – 24 Winter Weekend
Only a weekend of time for life altering experiences. Time and time again, we have seen young lives transformed by Jesus at this retreat. We play games and have tons of fun while God works in our midst and the Holy Spirit begins to flow. We have amazing times of worship, relevant talks and discussions, small group time, and a challenge to take the next step in faith in our lives and to encourage others to do the same. It is a great chance to goof off and encounter Jesus all at one time! To learn more about this event, please click here!
