We the members of Bridgewater United Methodist Church believe in the sacred worth of all human beings and as such, we believe that all of God’s children should be able to have full participation in the United Methodist Church, including ministry and marriage. We believe that the recent decision by the Special General Conference 2019 of the United Methodist Church to approve the amended Traditional Plan does egregious harm to our community.
We renounce this decision and lament the continued discrimination and
exclusion of LGBTQIA+ people from a full life in the United Methodist Church. We look forward to joining with like-minded churches and conferences to explore what a new branch of Methodism might look like, one that fully includes all people united by our love of Jesus Christ and steeped in a Wesleyan heritage. In the meantime, we will continue to be a connectional United Methodist Church by supporting its mission and ministries.
We welcome all of God’s children and celebrate diversity of race, ethnicity,
gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, ability and social status. We will seek to faithfully live into the credo of our church: Inviting All, Engaging Hearts and Minds, and Serving Others With The Love of Christ.

No matter how hard you try to make the Christmas season merry and bright, do you still sometimes feel there’s something missing? In Almost Christmas: A Wesleyan Advent Experience, we’ll explore over 4 weeks how we can make a commitment to Christ during Advent, and connect to our Wesleyan heritage with the traditional themes of peace, hope, love and joy. Join us as we seek to grow in our love for Jesus and one another this Advent season.

Fall 2019 Small Groups will be starting soon! You are invited to Connections where you will find exciting ways to connect with one another and with God through small groups. Connections groups allow us to share, question, and dig deeper into our faith in ways that are not always possible during Sunday worship. These are also perfect opportunities to invite a friend, neighbor, relative or someone who is already part of the BUMC community to join you in a casual, relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
Details on our Fall events can be found in our Connections Fall 2019 Brochure.
