Advent at BUMC

The season of Advent, which comes from the Latin word adventus, meaning “coming” or “visit," begins four Sundays before Christmas and ends on Christmas Eve. At BUMC, we have a number of programs and events for your whole family to participate in during the Advent season as we wait in anticipation for the birth of Jesus Christ, the Messiah.


Advent Wreath Kits

Prepare your family for Christmas with our take home Advent Wreath Kits! You can order supplies to build your own wreath at home for $20. Kits with additional children’s crafts are available for $25. Supplies are limited, so place your order before November 17.
