Like last year, this year our BUMC Youth are making prayer stations in the Student Center.

These will also be open during Maundy Thursday Drop-In Communion from 7 to 8:30P.M. See below.

Drop-in, walk through the prayer stations and receive communion as we remember the Last Supper. 

MERCY TREE: A GOOD FRIDAY SERVICE
April 15 from 7P.M.
On a hill in Calvary, there stands an endless Mercy Tree.
Every broken weary soul, find your rest and be made whole.

The Good Friday service is written by Jan Eaton and performed by the Birmingham UMC Choir.

This year we are encouraging our BUMC community to pick up the spiritual practice of prayer. This could look different for each member of our community and throughout Lent we’ll be giving you new ways to try. Below are three ways to plug in!

FAMILY PRAYER CARDS
We have daily prayer cards to use as prompts for Lent. You can also make a paper chain with them to count down to Easter and give you the prompt for the day. Copies are available in the Treehouse area or email us and we can send them electronically. 

PRAYER ROOM
Have you visited the prayer room in the Sanctuary building yet? If not, we encourage you to do so this Lent. The Prayer Room is open Monday-Thursday from 10A.M. to 4P.M. and before and after worship on Sundays. If for some reason it is locked, just pop over to the office and we’d be happy to open it for you.
