Welcome! Thanks for taking a look at our church website. Brentwood Community United Methodist Church (BCUMC) is a reconciling congregration celebrating 150 years of continuous ministry.

During Lent will we be collecting items for Blessing Bags. What is a Blessing Bag? A Blessing Bag is a small bag filled with essential items that can be provided to the homeless. Each bag is filled with simple items to help someone get through the day. Hygiene items, snacks, and inspirational materials are common blessing bag items. The items we collect during Lent will be used to assemble Blessing Bags at a Sunday Night Live event in April. The completed bags will be distributed throughout our community to help those in need. CLICK HERE for list of suggested items. A collection box for Blessing Bag donations is located in the Narthex.
Members have been receiving text messages from scammers posing as Pastor Hyesung Lee. These texts are typically asking for an urgent favor and are coming from a phone number that does not belong to Pastor Lee or the church.
DO NOT RESPOND TO ANY TEXT OR EMAILS! Please remember that Pastor Lee would not contact a member directly with an emergency request for cash, gift cards or any favors. If you are unsure if an email or text is “real”, please contact Michelle in the office, or reach out to Pastor Lee, or Lay Leaders, Dave Funk or Heidi Stark before taking any action. AGAIN, DO NOT RESPOND TO ANY TEXT OR EMAILS without verifying the validity of the message!
During these days of COVID, there are four ways you can safely worship with us.
- Worship with us in person: masks are strongly encouraged, but we will respect each person’s choice to wear or not wear a mask.
- Join us in a Zoom meeting and you can interact with the Pastor during the service.
- Watch the service live on our YouTube channel.
- Watch a recording of the service later in the week.
Details for on-line options are below.
Because some people cannot worship with us in church, we will continue to provide our services live on Zoom. For those members of our congregation who have a camera and microphone on their device, the service is available LIVE on a ZOOM video conference. People on the ZOOM video conference can see and hear what is happening in the Sanctuary and they also can participate in the worship service during the sharing of Joys and Concerns.
For those members of our congregation who do not have a camera and microphone on their device, the service is available LIVE on a LIVE STREAM. People watching the LIVE STREAM can see and hear what is happening in the Sanctuary. (Note: Click on the small square in the lower right corner of the video to see the service in a full screen.) We use the YouTube streaming service. Some members of the congregation have been able to watch the service using the YouTube app on their big screen smart TVs.
For members of the congregation who cannot worship with us on Sunday mornings, we record our worship services for later viewing. We try very hard to make the recording available around 7:00PM Sunday evenings. (Note: Click on the small square in the lower right corner of the video to see the service in a full screen.)
| Join us in the church sanctuary Sunday at 10:30AM for in-person worship!!
Click on the image above Sunday at 10:15AM (the service actually starts at 10:30AM) to watch the service live here or CLICK HERE to watch the service on a larger screen.
