Trunk or Treat is coming back on Saturday, October 25 from 2:00-4:00 pm, BUMC will host its 2nd annual Trunk or Treat in the parking lot across from the church.  Trunk or Treat is where members/attenders of the church park their cars in the parking lot and hand out candy to children who come dressed up in their Halloween outfits.  (You can dress up too and decorate your car!) We also have Halloween-oriented games for the children to play.

The UMW Bazaar will be on Saturday, November 1th. Once again we will have the "Clothes Closet.” Gently used and clean clothes and jewellery will be sold to profit our Mission Giving. Bring your donations to the church on Sunday, October 26th-31th. Put your donations downstairs by the elevator. All sizes are accepted! 

The 2014 Gala is scheduled for Sunday, December 7th. This year our many music and worship groups will be presenting their music and dance. The Silent Auction begins at 2:00 pm and the concert begins at 3:00 pm. The work to find items for the silent auction begins now and we need donations such as cabin stays, hotel and restaurant gift cards, retail gift cards, new or like new gift items, antiques, musical instruments, etc. We would also like to invite new members to join the planning committee. WE HAVE FUN and make a big dent in the general fund for the church. For more information on the Gala Committee click here or to volunteer, contact the Gala Committee via email.

From the UMCOR site: As the Ebola virus spreads in Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia, The United Methodist Church continues to be present and respond through West African United Methodist church leaders and regional health boards, denominational health facilities, missionaries, and the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR), the church’s humanitarian aid and health unit. Click here to read the entire article and for additional information check here and here. If you wish to contribute to this effort, write a check to BUMC and note on the bottom of the check that it should go to UMCOR International Disaster Response Advance #982450. If you would prefer to donate items rather than money, a list can be found in the office.


Do you have an event that we should know about? Let us know or we can't help!

MN Food Share has a new project called Harvest Campaign that needs your help to succeed. The goal of Harvest Campaign is to increase the amount of fresh produce available through the food shelves. This project is taking place August 15th - September 30th in the Twin Cities Metro Area. You can participate by donating fresh home or community-grown produce to our food shelf at Cross of Glory Church. Donations of cash will also gladly be accepted and allow food shelves to purchase healthy foods and fresh produce. Brooklyn Church is registered to participate in Harvest Campaign. If you are able to donate produce or cash, please bring it to church and leave it in the basket provided in the Narthex. We will record the amount donated and bring it to Cross of Glory or you can bring your donations directly to the food shelf. Just fill out the tally sheet and put it in the basket so we can keep track of our donations. Together we can help our food shelf provide healthier choices for our community. Thanks for your participation!
