Bible Bees Wednesday Evenings

We are back with a new study titled "Death and Resurrection of the Messiah".   Please watch the video below for details and schedule!


LOADING PLAYER…

We believe: Prayer works.

At Bee Creek, we’ve seen time and time again what prayer can do. When our church began, 100 people we didn’t even know joined us in prayer for God to bless our efforts. Prayer was the first ministry we established and it continues today through our dedicated Prayer Chain. 

Prayer Chain Team

If you would like to be a member of the Prayer Chain and commit yourself to joining others in their prayers, please email the church office click here. 

Hospital Visitation Team

The Bee Creek UMC Hospital Visitation Team was formed to support our church families with prayer and presence while they are hospitalized. This includes day surgery as well as over-night stays. BCUMC members have volunteered and been trained to be a part of this team. 

A member of our team will visit the patient and their families at the hospital. If the patient is not feeling up to visitors, we will leave a card letting them know that we've been by to visit. Many of the team members are also trained to offer Communion.


Remember the covenant we have all made with each other as members of Bee Creek UMC. This ministry is part of the

fulfillment of the covenant. Please let us know if you or a friend is hospitalized.  We would love to visit and share the love of Christ.  

We also need team members. Don't be bashful, step up.


If you or someone you know is in need of a hospital visit, please contact the church office at (512) 264-2225, or email our Hospital Visitation Chair, Ron Neva at rondneva@gmail.com.  If you are interested in joining our team, please let us know!

PRAYER SHAWL MINISTRY

Do you love to knit or would you love to learn how to?


The Prayer Shawl Ministry combines compassion and the love of knitting/crocheting into a prayerful ministry which reaches out to those in need of comfort and solace or in celebration and joy. The ministry believes in the awesome power of prayer and petitions God.  Every stitch is made on behalf of the person who will receive the shawl. It is our hope that everyone receiving these shawls will feel God's embrace and BCUMC's love.


Meeting Time and Location:

Mondays from 7:00pm - 9:00pm

Wednesdays from 9:30 a.m. - Noon


Event is offsite so please contact Claudett Woodard for more information.


If you would like to request a Prayer Baby Blanket for someone who has had a baby or a Prayer Shawl for someone who is undergoing a medical procedure, coping with an illness, going through a time of bereavement or going through a difficult time, please contact Claudett Woodard.

Quilting and Crochet Team

"In Joppa there was a disciple named Tabitha (in Greek her name is Dorcas), she was always doing good and helping the poor.  

About that time she became sick and died, and her body was washed and placed in an upstairs room.  

Lydda was near Joppa; so when the disciples heard that Peter was in Lydda, they sent two men to him and urged him, “Please come at once!”

Peter went with them, and when he arrived he was taken upstairs to the room. All the widows stood around him, crying and showing him the robes and other clothing that Dorcas had made while she was still with them.  Peter sent them all out of the room; then he got down on his knees and prayed. Turning toward the dead woman, he said, “Tabitha, get up.” She opened her eyes, and seeing Peter she sat up.  

He took her by the hand and helped her to her feet."

Acts 9: 36-41

Men's Mission Teams

Our men have a number of ways that they reach out to the community, both around the world and right here in Spicewood. 


LaSenda Children’s Home, Guatemala

A Men's Mission Team travels to the La Senda Children's Home in Guatemala each year. They work on various building projects for the growing home. We send monthly financial support to this orphanage and school in Guatemala of $500. We have annual mission trips to the home by both Men and Women Ministries. Others in our congregation have "adopted" a child and send monthly support. We have a special connection with the kids at La Senda! 


Other Mission opportunities

The men's ministry teams have traveled to Louisiana and to various areas within Texas to help with rebuilds after hurricane destruction.
