encounter band on stage in Fellowship Hall

Follow encounter on Facebook and Twitter @encounterBUMC.

Come for an interactive, uplifting service of praise. This is a modern worship experience that is led by the encounter Band playing the best of contemporary music while the preaching will be drawn from God’s Word and made relevant, useful, and alive to everybody.

Bold. A service that is rooted in the gospel of Jesus Christ, which tears down walls and builds up life. Where there is authentic joy in gathering to worship God and power in discovering that our lives working together can serve and change the world.

Inclusive and open. A service where everybody — seeker and skeptic, Democrat and Republican, gay and straight, young and old, woman and man — has a real place at the table. We mean it. Wherever you are on your spiritual journey, you are truly welcome here.

Relevant. A service where the gospel connects to the real world and helps you live your Monday-Saturday life, where beliefs aren’t rigid boxes to check, but springboards into imagination and meaningful action.
