Boonton UMC 


September 4, 2022
13th 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.
As we head into Labor Day weekend, what does it mean to rest in and abide in God? And at the cusp of a new school year, what does it mean for, not just children heading into the classrooms to grow, but, all of God's children to grow? 

Whether in-person or on YouTube, we hope you can join us at 11:15am this Sunday at Boonton UMC! And be sure to read all the way through this email, as there are LOTS of new things highlighted!
