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.

Join us ONLINE for Worship every Sunday at 9:30am

Click the link above for a message from Pastor Matt (April 2021)

We have several daily or weekly spiritual growth offerings which are continuing online throughout the year. There are daily devotionals, children's stories, Sunday School, and interesting articles posted regularly through our church facebook pagewww.facebook.com/bjumc.


Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic our church building is currently closed.

Please do not come to the church building, it is closed  until further notice.

We will continue all of our normal worship activities and services.  All are

invited to join us Sundays at 9:30AM, for our Facebook LIVESTREAM worship

services. The video of the service will remain online for those who miss it. 

Live-streams will begin a couple minutes before the service. Click the picture

to the right to visit our Facebook page! Share the livestream/video on your

feed as a simple way of inviting friends to church! You can also view our Daily

Devotionals on our Facebook page as well.

NOTE: You do not need to be a member of Facebook or have a Facebook Account to view this livestream.  Also, if you log in, and do not see the livestream, you may need to "refresh" the page once the livestream begins to get it to show up.  We usually begin broadcasting about 4-5 minutes before the service starts.

What's Happening at BJUMC



We continue livestreaming our Worship Services on our BJUMC Facebook Page as always. However, periodically, we need to update the login information with Zoom. To view our worship services directly in Zoom click this link.


If you or somebody you know calls in, they may call: 1-929-205-6099 then enter webinar ID# 996 8615 4541. Telephone connection and Zoom connection only available live.


Our Fellowship and Meeting Room information is the same as 2020, no change.



Many committees are working towards revising policies and plans to safely re-open our church, setting systems in place to continue livestreaming from the sanctuary. As we do this, we ask that only the people leading worship come to the church building for worship, until we get everything figured out. Some weeks will be livestreamed from the sanctuary, some will not. We ask for your patience as we make this transition, and work out any bugs in our systems. God is good, and we look forward to worshipping with you in person soon! VOLUNTEERS DESPARATELY NEEDED: If you would like to volunteer to help, please see below, we need LOTS of Volunteers!



We have begun the process of slowly re-opening our church. We need many more volunteers to make this happen on a regular basis. Worship in the Sanctuary requires volunteers which we do not presently have, so we can only worship in the sanctuary sporadically. To volunteer to be an A/V or other Worship leader in our church, please email Pastor Matt.


Our new Associate Pastor, TayLavor will be working part time, but picking up duties across the whole spectrum of our church activities. We welcome her to our church family! Click here to read more about Pastor TayLavor.

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.
