9:00 am & 10:30 am
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:
- 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
- INVITE a new family from your neighborhood to go to www.christmasinbatonrouge.com and register to attend
- SERVE at the event as a table leader, greeter, parking attendant, golf cart driver, or help meet any other volunteer need that we have.*
Get FIT on Christmas Eve!

Hope & Remembrance Service
On Sunday, December 23 at 2:30pm you are invited to a special service as we gather to give thanks for those loved and lost. This service provides individuals and families an opportunity at Christmas to remember loved ones and to light a candle in that person’s name. Join us in the Sanctuary for this very special time of worship.
You are invited Sundays from 10:00 – 10:30am for a special time of fellowship between worship services.
- This Sunday: Christmas Cookie Swap. One of the best parts of the holidays is all the yummy treats. Get in the Christmas spirit by sharing your favorite cookies with your BUMC family. Bring to Connection Café by 10:00am.
- 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.
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. Decorating is scheduled to take place after church and a pizza lunch will be provided. If you have any questions, contact Christi Rangel at email@example.com or 225-924-6269.
