Welcome 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 also provide the perfect opportunity 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.  Register today so that you don’t miss out on the fun!
