Mother's Day at BMUCC

Children celebrated and honored their mothers at church this Sunday in a beautiful ceremony orchestrated by Joyce and Nelson!

Yesterday was a special day as we acknowledged and celebrated the influence and love of mothers and mother figures in our lives. We recognized that Mother’s Day can evoke a range of emotions, from gratitude and joy to loss and pain.

We honored not only the mothers who are with us but also those who have passed on, and we extended our support to those who long to be mothers or have faced challenges in their journey of motherhood.

As we worshipped together, we embraced the diversity of our stories and experiences, and were united in love, compassion, and understanding. Happy Mother’s Day to all, and may we all continue to both celebrate as well as find strength and support in this loving congregation!

Nurturing Our Faith Beyond Sunday: Growing Closer to God in Daily Life

There are a myriad ways in which our faith can be nurtured and deepened beyond the experience of Sunday worship. While gathering in the church is a vital part of our spiritual journey, we believe that the opportunity to grow closer to God is ever-present in our daily lives.

Personal Testimony: Why I As a Gay Man Chose BMUCC

It wasn't easy for my husband and I to find a church home in the North Scottsdale/Cave Creek area that would welcome us as a gay couple, but the second we stepped through the doors at BMUCC, we knew we were home.
