Barrington United Methodist Church

I love you Mom!

We are going to be honoring Mothers on Mother’s Day (May 9, 2021) during worship by showing messages that people leave on a program called “Padlet.”  Jennifer Emerson has created a link where you can leave personal greetings including text and images.  Just click on this link and feel free to post multiple messages to show love and appreciation to all the special women in our lives.  This is open for everyone in our congregation to do – not just the kids!

  • What were the order of events according to the Bible?
  • View this Tenebrae service with the Barrington United Methodist Church and delve with us into the depths of this somber day when Jesus paid the ultimate price for our salvation.


The Barrington United Methodist Church continues to worship virtually AND as of Easter Sunday (April 4, 2021) we will begin to also reopen Live. (Both Virtual and Live will be available. See announcement below.)


Dear BUMC Family & Friends, 

We are very pleased to announce that the church doors will be open once again for in  person worship as of Easter morning. Not to worry, our virtual service will also continue  without interruption. Starting in April, you will be able to choose how you would like to  worship – in person or virtually. We do ask that if you are planning to attend worship in  person on Easter, that you call the church to let us know how many people will be in  your party so that we can be sure to have adequate seating. 

For those who are considering coming in person, we want to make you aware of some  changes. First of all, do not anticipate that everything will feel the same. Please be  ready to be flexible and welcoming of new and creative aspects to worship. There will  be numerous guidelines required by the state and conference for everyone’s safety. 

• Please enter at Bradford Street entrance. 

• Masks must be worn at all times. 

• Social distance of 6 feet. 

• A health screening will be completed at the doorway by a greeter. • Use wall mounted hand sanitizer upon entering the sanctuary. 

• Please sit in available pews as marked by ribbons. 

• No congregational singing. 

• Fellowship Hall not available for fellowship. 

• No nursery, Sunday School or table in the back of sanctuary for the kids. • Bathrooms are available. Please wipe down touched handles, faucets, etc. after  use with available cleaning wipes. 

As you see, sadly, there are necessary changes and requirements. On the positive side,  there is much for which to be thankful and hopeful. We have missed each other.  Worshiping in the same sacred space and feeling Pastor Michael’s heartfelt message in  person is indeed a blessing. This is a first step. 

Feel free to ask any questions or concerns with anyone on the reopening team. Contact Us

The Barrington United Methodist Church strives to be a welcoming community, centered in  Christ, and inspired by the Gospel.
