"Love God, your God, with your whole heart: love him with all that’s in you, love him with all you’ve got! Write these commandments that I’ve given you today on your hearts. Get them inside of you and then get them inside your children. Talk about them wherever you are, sitting at home or walking in the street; talk about them from the time you get up in the morning to when you fall into bed at night. Tie them on your hands and foreheads as a reminder; inscribe them on the doorposts of your homes and on your city gates.”
-- Deuteronomy 6:5-9 The Message

At BUMC, our family ministry vision is to partner with families on the exciting journey of developing our faith and that of our kids. We are excited to get to work together with you in raising the next faith generation! We do this in a variety of ways:
When you bring your children to any of our 3 Sunday school hours (8:30, 9:45 and 11:05am) you will find a safe and engaging environment staffed by caring volunteers. Our goal is to help kids realize that learning about Jesus and coming to church is really FUN!
Elementary Rotation Sunday School:
Each week kids experience the current lesson theme in a variety of settings: art, cooking, computer lab, games, music and drama, science, and video. We also offer mission project opportunities throughout the year.
4th-5th Sunday School :
We know that preteen kids are unique and amazing individuals in the midst of a transition from kid to teen. Our curriculum focuses on relevant issues that they face in their daily lives and points them to the Bible to help them navigate these issues. Games and mission opportunities are also a big part of this hour.
(9:45 only in Room 201)
All of our elementary hours include a music time as well!
- 8:30am & 11:05am: 1st-5th grades meet in the Family Life Center.
- 9:45am: 1st-3rd grades meet in the Family Life Center (gym). 4th-5th grades meet in Room 201.
BROOMFIELD LIL' KIDS! SUNDAY SCHOOL
Our Infant to Kindergarten Ministry is all about FUN! Fun is the language of kids and teaching kids about God is ours. Put the two together and add a fun, biblically-based curriculum like "Spark" and you get our Infant to Kindergarten Sunday School program. Our classes offer engaging Bible stories and "activating faith" activities that reach kids and direct them toward becoming followers of Christ.
Preschool and Kindergarten

Our nursery ministry not only provides loving care on Sunday mornings, but also teaches your child about God and His Word. We make the most of the opportunities that God gives us through a child's play to tell and sing about God's love for them. We incorporate sensory activities, toys, music, movement and snack with age-appropriate Bible stories to help children experience God's love and learn that going to church is fun.

for information of the 2016 Christmas Musical "Sheep In Heavenly Peace". It’s a zoo out here! Bethlehem’s homes and inns may be bursting at the seams with travelers for the census, but because of the animals they brought with them, the stable is simply out of control! Bethlehem’s top temp agency must call on their most eager but often-inept family of workers, the Wooltons to step up and answer the call!
