Christmas in Baton Rouge

Christmas in Baton Rouge is our new Christmas Eve service aimed at young families with children from outside of our worshiping community. Guests at the event will make a keepsake nativity ornament, meet the live characters from the nativity, interact with live animals, celebrate at a happy birthday Jesus party, enjoy live music, and visit a Christmas marketplace. Due to popular demand, the 2:00pm event is SOLD OUT and we have added a second Christmas in Baton Rouge event at 12:00pm! In order to make this a wonderful experience for our guests, we need your help. We are asking our congregation to do 3 things: 

  1. PRAY for those who will be attending the service, that these families might find a connection here at BUMC, and that this experience would ultimately lead them into a deeper relationship with God
  2. INVITE a new family from your neighborhood to go to www.christmasinbatonrouge.com and register to attend
  3. SERVE at the event as a table leader, greeter, parking attendant, golf cart driver, or help meet any other volunteer need that we have.* 
*Contact Brad Waggoner at 225-924-6269 if you would like to serve.

 

Get FIT on Christmas Eve!

This Christmas Eve we will have dozens of first time guests visiting our church to celebrate the birth of our Savior. Will you help us spread the joy of the season through our Hospitality Ministry? We are looking for Hospitality FIT people to welcome folks onto campus by passing out candy canes in the parking lot, hosting in Connection Café, and greeting people at the worship services. This is the perfect time to have some fun and volunteer as a family! In most cases, it will only take 30 minutes before one of the services to make a huge impact on our Christmas Eve guests. Services this year are at 12:00, 2:00, 4:00, 6:00, and 7:30pm. Sign up Sunday in Connection Café or contact Christi Rangel at 225-924-6269 or crangel@broadmoormethodist.org

We’re still decorating our Mitten Tree in Connection Café as we partner with Open Air Homeless Ministries to keep the homeless children in Baton Rouge warm this winter. Please drop off new, unworn children’s mittens, gloves, and winter hats in Connection Café through Sunday, December 16. You’re also invited to decorate the Mitten Tree with us during [the in-between] from 10:00 to 10:30am. All donations will be given to the children of Open Air Homeless Ministries on January 13.

  • Next Sunday: Let’s Get Crafty! Bring the kiddos to Connection Café to make a special Christmas craft they can put on their tree at home. We’ll also have hot chocolate and holiday treats.

Winter Wonderland

One of everyone’s favorite parts of the Christmas Eve experience is our Winter Wonderland near the Sanctuary. Children and adults loved the twinkling lights and “snow”. We need YOUR help creating the Winter Wonderland once again. If you love Christmas and stringing lights, please stop by Connection Café to sign-up to help on Sundays, December 9 and 16.
