Welcome! Thanks for taking a look at our church website. Brentwood Community United Methodist Church (BCUMC) is a reconciling congregration celebrating 150 years of continuous ministry.
We know that finding a spiritual community that meets your needs personally or as a family can be a challenging task.
We welcome ALL people regardless of gender, race, class, age, ability, religious affiliation or sexual orientation. We value each one as a precious and unique child of God.
We affirm the questions you may have as you check out churches via websites or visits. We’ll try to answer a few here. Read More >>
In response to the Shelter in Place order from the Contra Costa County Department of Health, we are canceling all face-to-face worship services and meetings until the Shelter in Place order is lifted. Pastor Lee will prepare and video record her messages and the recordings will be posted here and on our Facebook group page each Sunday. If you have a prayer request, you can click the "Prayer Request" button below. If you are in immediate need of pastoral care, please contact Pastor Lee directly.
Our Administrative Assistant will be working part time in the office (hours to be determined) so phone messages can be left. However, a response may be delayed due to the change in her hours.
H.O.P.E. House is still open to distribute food Monday and Wednesday from 9:00am to noon.
The church would certainly appreciate your continued contributions. Checks can be mailed to the church office and contributions can be made using PayPal.
During these days of COVID, there are three ways you can safely worship with us. Pastor Lee and a small worship team meet in our Sanctuary Sunday mornings and present a regular worship service.
For those members of our congregation who have a camera and microphone on their device, the service is available LIVE on a ZOOM video conference. People on the ZOOM video conference can see and hear what is happening in the Sanctuary and they also can participate in the worship service during a mini-social time before the service and during the sharing of Joys and Concerns.
For those members of our congregation who do not have a camera and microphone on their device, the service is available LIVE on a LIVE STREAM. People watching the LIVE STREAM can see and hear what is happening in the Sanctuary. (Note: Click on the small square in the lower right corner of the video to see the service in a full screen.) We use the YouTube streaming service. Some members of the congregation have been able to watch the service using the YouTube app on their big screen smart TVs.
For members of the congregation who cannot worship with us live on Sunday mornings, we record our worship services. We try very hard to make the recording available around 7:00PM Sunday evenings. (Note: Click on the small square in the lower right corner of the video to see the service in a full screen.)
