About Us

Welcome to Bridgewater United Methodist Church!

Bridgewater UMC (BUMC) is a community of people on a faith journey with Jesus Christ. We’re here for you if you’ve never been to church or are considering a change. As active church community members, we are committed to helping each other reach our full potential in Jesus Christ.  
At BUMC, 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 live into the credo of our church faithfully: Inviting All, Engaging Hearts and Minds, and Serving Others With The Love of Christ.
On August 10, 2020, at a Special Church Conference, BUMC voted to join the Reconciling Ministries Network (RMN). The vote was overwhelmingly in favor of joining the RMN and being an inclusive church. 

Reconciling Ministry

Joining the Network is a public statement about how BUMC is welcoming and fully including LGBTQ persons.  However, our  work is not done.  Going forward, we will be intentional about putting the welcoming principles for LGBTQ persons, and all persons, into “real life” practice.  Authentic hospitality doesn’t just happen. We have to be prepared.  We will be intentional about learning how to do this well, and we will seek to learn from the successes and failures of other churches in the network.  But for now, let’s celebrate this wonderful step that our congregation has taken!
