My Experience with Donating Bone Marrow By Katie Anderson

My Experience with Donating Bone Marrow By Katie Anderson

A few years back, I swabbed my cheeks and signed up to be a donor when my sorority at LSU in Baton Rouge hosted a bone marrow donor drive. All I really knew about bone marrow was that it is pretty rare for patients to find a match, and that if you are matched it could save a life. I remember thinking about Jim Watts during this time and how amazing it was that a stranger from another country saved his life.

Church Transformation Note from Dr Greg Davis

Hi everyone! Hard to believe it really is Fall, but the season is changing.  Advent and Christmas are right around the corner.  If you don’t believe me, visit WalMart.  

​​​​​​Couple of things: first, thank you for completing the survey.  The whole point of the survey is this: to capture an accurate picture of BUMC.  This requires EVERYONE’S voice to be heard.  There’s no substitute.  This is the last week the survey will be up, so if you haven’t taken it, please go to broadmoorumc.org, click on Quick Links, then click on Congregational Survey.  Takes 15 minutes.

Youth Ministry | Grand Gathering 2018

Youth Ministry | Grand Gathering 2018

School is back in session, and our Youth Ministry is officially in full swing! We had our Grand Gathering on Sunday, August 19th, and the turnout was INCREDIBLE! We had 53 youth and some more adult volunteers that turned out for this event. The theme was Ready, Set, GO! We had a great time playing lots of different relays and races, and still had time to connect it all back to who we are called to be as United Methodists.
