Home > Worship


At Bear Creek United Methodist Church, we understand that God’s grace extends to all people. We welcome and affirm persons of any age, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, ethnic background, faith tradition, physical and mental ability, economic condition, marital status, family configuration, and in all the ways in which God’s family is diverse and whole.

We recognize the differences among us as wonderful gifts that teach us how to love alike even though we may not think alike.

In our intention to follow the example of Christ, we will employ no circles of exclusion and we commit ourselves to loving acts of invitation, hospitality, mutual respect, and reconciliation, providing ministry to, for, and with all persons without exception.

Delivering the message3.1Our Sunday Morning Worship begins at 9:30. We believe in transformational worship here at BCUMC. What that means is we feel that a worship service that doesn’t move us, isn’t worth doing. Worship is meant to inspire us to new ways to express and live out our walk with Jesus into the everyday world we are a part of. And we know what that’s like. We know it’s not easy. We know life can get to be a grind sometimes. We know that the living and breathing love is not something that the world always embraces. We know that sometimes we just want to give up. We know sometimes we get so busy living our “everyday” lives that we forget who we are…and whose we are. Worship is meant to help us remember that we are sacred children of a God who not only loves us but loves us extravagantly! Each worship we design is meant to encounter us where we are and meant to inspire us to live Life with a capital L again!

Communion1Each week our community ends our celebration and worship by partaking in Communion. We do this because we know we are hungry and need to be fed weekly by the grace, mercy and forgiveness of our God. At Bear Creek we are proud to have an open communion table. People of any age and background who seek to take another step toward God’s grace are always welcome at the communion table. There are many things we are flexible on here at Bear Creek but open communion is a must! If you come to worship with us at Bear Creek know that we believe in the power of prayer, and pray for and with each other regularly as our faith is strengthened by God’s healing touch.  Each Sunday morning, a prayer partner is available to pray one-on- one with you for healing and new life to spring forth. Many people contribute hand-made shawls to our prayer shawl ministry, and anyone is welcome to take one to someone who needs to be wrapped in God’s love.

Children's Ministery1.1

Children are always welcome to worship with us at Bear Creek. Their joyful spirits and inventive hearts deepen our understanding of our God’s love for us. We have an activity table and busy bags available as well as rocking chairs for people who need to be snuggled.  Elementary school- aged children are invited to serve as acolytes, carrying in the communion bread and Bible, and lighting candles of the season.
