BRUMC Banner



Welcome! Broad Ripple United Methodist Church is an open congregation in the heart of Broad Ripple village. 



The Broad Ripple
UMC Hive

The Leadership Team has invited all who call BRUMC home to consider your contribution to our capital campaign (please let us know by the end of this month).

This beautiful 5-minute video is a glimpse at a beekeeper in New Hampshire who is learning from the bees who produce the wax he uses to make candles for churches. He has some deep thoughts to share about what a beehive has to say about Christian community and ministry. 

The goal of our campaign is $50,000.  $17,000 will pay off the loan and the remaining $33,000 will be needed soon for plumbing, heating, air conditioning, electrical and parking lot expenses.  Bee an investor in the future of BRUMC's ministry.  If we will bee faithful, God will help us provide the  honey..

You may share your gift as a one-time offering or make smaller contributions at whatever interval is comfortable for you.  Your gifts may be placed in the offering plate at worship or mailed to the church.  Please return your gift or pledge of a gift by October 31.  Bee sure to indicate that your gift is for the Building campaign. 



Is it as hard for you as it is for me to believe that we're rounding the corner into October this weekend? Fall is here!

And it's time for me to return to work after family leave. After a challenging summer, I welcome a new season and the chance to be back with you at the work of being the Body of Christ in Broad Ripple.

Having the time to focus exclusively on my family responsibilities for this past three months has been a huge gift. I learned a lot during my three-month bootcamp as a single parent, and I continue to give thanks that it was a temporary situation. Lauren has been back home for a month now from her hospitalization, and all of us are readjusting well to life together. 

This fall there's a great deal of reflection, reaction, and hand-wringing about our nation's near future, as we're in the final weeks of the presidential campaign. This fall will also be a very important season in our life as a congregation. It's time for us to look carefully and honestly at our life together and to make some serious decisions about our future. I'll be interested in your candid thoughts on what's next for BRUMC and will be looking for opportunities in October to discuss our future with you. I encourage you to be thinking specifically about what you see ahead for us. 

Whatever is ahead--for our nation and for our congregation--we will live into it together. I look forward to seeing you again Sunday.

Grateful for your partnership in the gospel,
Pastor Brent
