Welcome to BJUMC
Believers Joyously Unified in Mission with Christ
BJUMC welcomes ALL to be part of our church community, to grow closer to God and to serve the world! As Jesus taught us, all means ALL, without regard to race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, ability, gender, gender identity, faith history, marital status, education, social status, or any other difference whether real or perceived.

What's Happening at BJUMC
We are open!
VACCINATION RATES OVER 70% in SOMERSET COUNTY: NEW POLICY AT BJUMC
We continue to monitor the situation closely in our local area to ensure a safe worship and ministry setting. Effective July 18, our local church policy will be vacated, and we will abide by CDC recommendations, NJ State Law, and GNJUMC Guidelines as our way forward. We hope this will be less restrictive, and enable us to do more ministry in the coming weeks. Some events may have a few additional requirements if necessary to ensure a safe environment. Below are brief synopses of the various guidance points to review:
WE WILL CONTINUE TO STREAM OUR WORSHIP ONLINE!
To View online, please visit our livestream on Facebook (you may also click the picture below to go directly to our BJUMC Facebook page) or Zoom (Code 25862).

Livestreams will begin a couple of minutes before the service.

Bishop Janes UMC celebrates the sacrament of Holy Communion, virtually on the first Sunday of each month. If you wish to receive communion, we do ask that you participate in the service LIVE, as communion is a contemporaneous communal event. The Methodist Church does not require membership in our church or any church to receive communion, we only ask that you come before God with a repenting heart, seeking to live a life as a Disciple of Christ. Click the picture for more information on Communion in the UMC.
