Our Church

Bee Creek UMC began in 2002 when a handful of people dreamed of starting a new faith community in their neighborhood. In the early days, we rented space, set up chairs, and even swept up beer bottles to get our space ready for worship. To be part of this church in the early days meant rolling up your sleeves, an aspect of our DNA we still cherish. We are a community that serves. 


We've learned to risk great things for God. From moving to our own land, to adding a gym for our community, to starting a worship service outside our walls. We haven't always known how things would work, but when we hear God calling, we wade in. And, oh, the miracles we've seen!


We share these core values:

We believe that children matter.

We believe that youth lead.

We believe in authentic worship.

We believe we all need good friends.

We believe we can change the world together.


We believe: Bee Creek UMC is a community of imperfect people who are transformed by God's perfect love and change the world together. We seek each week, to be our true selves and allow others to do the same. We long for God's love to transform and shape us. And, we give of our time and money to restore and bring hope in our community and around the world.

Story

The best way to tell your story is to intentionally live your life around other people, especially other people who have no community. You can do this with a little more intentionality in a Small Group or you can simply ask God to show you who are friends, family, coworkers, or neighbors who have no community. Then it is simply a matter of inviting them over to eat or to go out to eat or to check out The Harbor together.  


We don't go into relationships looking to 'convert' someone.....No, we simply go into relationships with the offer to love others and be loved by them. As you get to know each other over time, natural opportunities to share your story will bubble up in conversation. Conversation that could include your love for Christ and the hope that can be found in our God.  You might find that these friends come to you when they are going through difficulties in this life and you have the chance to share your own story with them. It is always more important to offer our attention and friendship, because our story speaks.  


We pray that our stories speak of Christ and his transforming love in our lives.  Now, THAT is contagious!

We are working very hard to pay off our old debt from 2006 when we built our campus! Blessed to have zero debt from the gym thanks to each and everyone of you, the only debt we have is from the original loan.  With special thanks to Elizabeth Williams and our finance team, we will be able to save money and pay off our old debt (original buildings) sooner, saving thousands of dollars each year and freeing those funds for ministry!


If anyone has any questions about the board, or would like any information, please contact Linnea Falk linnea@beecreekumc.org.


Operation Back to School 2021

This August, our board participated in their annual service project in conjunction with our Youth Ministry - Operation Back to School! Each summer the youth ministry purchases and organizes school supplies for the board to pack for students in our community. This year, the board was able to pack 27 backpacks for students and help them be the best students they can be! This project is so important to our church and community; thank you to everyone involved!
