  • BUMC Lenten Devotional

    Greetings Saints,

    Please find attached a PDF of the BUMC Lenten Devotional. This has been created by members of our church as well as the pastor to offer a daily devotional that you can read as we travel along our Lenten Journey together.

    A special thank you to our Music Director Jessica Bardelli for the idea and then spearheading this amazing project.

    Feel free to share with others in your life and may we all be transformed in Christ during this Lenten Season.

    We at Bethel United Methodist Church are so excited to have the opportunity to roll Breeze, an online member directory out to you. We would like to invite you to create an account by clicking on the Create Account button below.

    This will allow you to view and update your own information. You will soon be able to view your giving history, see groups you belong to, view your volunteer schedule and manage blockout dates, and easily donate online through previously-used payment methods (i.e. a specific credit card, debit card, or bank account).

    Additionally, you will be able to search the database to view general contact information about others who have opted into the Online Directory.

    After creating an account, you can conveniently access our church's Breeze account by going to https://bethelumc.breezechms.com or downloading the Breeze App. If logging into the Breeze App the Church ID is: bethelumc

    We are so excited about this new journey at Bethel United Methodist Church, and are thrilled to be able to release this to you! Here is a great Member Tutorial Video that may be helpful as you learn this new tool!
