Boonton UMC 


August 28, 2022
12th Sunday after Pentecost

Sunday worship at 11:15am -
In-Person and on YouTube
Boonton UMC: A fun, musical, relevant, relational, and compassionate church
where people find hope, healing, and wholeness.
Although, as of yesterday, there was a sign covering our BUMC church sign that says, "Church of the Light," fear not! That is just a temporary cover for the movie company filming some scenes at our church this week. Although, fitting, considering Boonton UMC is a place filled with much light! Just as we, who are God's messengers, are all called to be.

Speaking of covering, separate from signs being covered, there was someone calling from the dugout who said, "Put me in, coach!" He was willing to cover for the one who had been on the mound for awhile. "Our pitcher is getting tired. I'm ready, coach!" He was the prophet on the team who was last to make his appearance known, but one of the players who would point us to restoration and what was coming more than anyone else. And though it seemed the other team was racking up points against our minor league prophets, throwing this messenger in was a game changer that could help bridge the gap.

Join us as we conclude our summer series on the minor prophets with Malachi! Did we save the best for last? You can be the umpire who makes that call. But you certainly won't want to miss this one!


Whether in-person or on YouTube, we hope you can join us at 11:15am this Sunday at Boonton UMC!

Many smiles were shared and Cracker Jacks consumed at last Friday's baseball game.

And hey! Does the M on that guy's outfit stand for Miner or Methodist? Well, it turns out it could be either, because Miner Man is also Methodist!
(Cue the song: "It's A Small World After All")
