2020 Board Updates


We would like welcome Gail Simmons and Nick Granelli to the 2020 Board!!  This year Mike Binns will serve as Chair and Nick Granelli will serve as Co-Chair.  Elizabeth Williams serves as our Treasurer.


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 2020

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 46 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!

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.
