    Call To Worship (Terry Shears, liturgist)

    With all our heart, we take refuge in God most high, who created all things,
    the merciful Father, source of all goodness.
    With all our heart, we take refuge in Christ, the Redeemer from sin,
    who restores our true nature, the perfect and mysterious Word.
    With all our heart, we take refuge in the One who embraces the universe,
    who at all times and in all places responds to our needs,
    the pure and tranquil Holy Spirit.  Amen.

    Welcome & Announcements (Terry Shears, liturgist)

    *Singing    "For the Fruits of This Creation" UMH #97 (all verses)

    Scripture Reading    Psalm 105:1-6 read only, no musical response (Terry Shears, liturgist)

    Give thanks to the Lord: call upon his name; make his deeds known to all people!
    Sing to God; sing praises to the Lord; dwell on all his wondrous works!
    Give praise to God’s holy name!  Let the hearts rejoice of all those seeking the Lord!
    Pursue the Lord and his strength; seek his face always!
    Remember the wondrous works he has done; all his marvelous works, and the justice he declared -
    you who are the offspring of Abraham, his servant, and the children of Jacob, his chosen ones.

    Affirmation of Faith - "Congregational Reaffirmation of the Baptismal Covenant"  UMH pg. 50  (Terry Shears, liturgist)

    Liturgist: Since the earliest times, the vows of Christian baptism have consisted first of the renunciation of all that is evil and then the profession of faith and loyalty to Christ.  Please join with me in a reaffirmation of our baptism as a confession of faith.

    On behalf of the whole church, I ask you:
    Do you renounce the spiritual forces of wickedness, reject the evil powers of this world, and repent of your sin?
    I do.
    Do you accept the freedom and power God gives you to resist evil, injustice, and oppression in whatever forms they present themselves?
    I do.
    Do you confess Jesus Christ as your Savior, put your whole trust in his grace, and promise to serve him as your Lord, in union with the church which Christ has opened to people of all ages, nations, and races?
    I do.
    According to the grace given to you, will you remain faithful members of Christ’s holy church and serve as Christ’s representatives in the world?
    I will.
    Let us join together in professing the Christian faith as contained in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments.
    Do you believe in God the Father?
    I believe in God, the Father Almighty, creator of heaven and earth.
    Do you believe in Jesus Christ?
    I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; he descended to the dead.  On the third day he rose again; he ascended into heaven, is seated at the right hand of the Father, and will come again to judge the living and the dead.
    Do you believe in the Holy Spirit?
    I believe in the Holy Spirit,
    the holy catholic church,
    the communion of saints,
    the forgiveness of sins,
    the resurrection of the body,
    and the life everlasting.

    Our Mission

    As an outreach program of Boardman United Methodist Church, B.U.M.P. exists to fulfill the mission statement of the church, which states in part, “…to sensitively identify the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of those within and outside of our community and to respond to specific personal and/or group action.” We believe it is important for children to be in a safe, faith-based setting with staff who demonstrate love, warmth, and care.

    Our Curriculum

    • Literacy/Language Arts
    • Creative Art
    • Science
    • Math
    • Dramatic Play
    • Gross/Fine Motor Skills
    • Computers/Technology
    • Music & Motion
    • Circle Time/Sharing
    • Outdoor Playground
    • Indoor Discovery Room
    • Gymsters (extra fees)


    We believe that the preschool years are very important years in the development of a child. They are the years of learning to relate to others and of acquiring skills that provide a foundation for later learning. We are a play-based center following Developmentally Appropriate Practices using the Ohio Guidelines for Infants and Toddlers, Ohio’s Early Learning Content Standards, and Creative Curriculum as our guidelines. We are not interested in pushing a child’s educational experience; we are interested in setting free and cultivating a child’s abilities and interests. This is just a continuation of what you, as concerned parents, have begun at home. Working together, we can help your child to develop to his or her full potential.

    BUMP (Boardman United Methodist Preschool) began as a preschool years ago, and in 1990 the childcare aspect was launched.

    After undergoing a comprehensive self-study, we received our 1 Star through Step Up To Quality a couple of years ago. We recently went from a 4 STAR to a 5 STAR. In order to become a star-rated center, we were required to meet the criteria the state requires of each level of their star rating. This is a voluntary program meeting higher levels of care and early learning. Therefore, the greater the number of stars, the more is required of a center to receive this honor.

    BUMP has been unique since it opened, looking at your child’s social, emotional, physical, and intellectual development. We are so fortunate to have trained caring and devoted teachers who have unselfishly given years in the classroom shaping, molding, and providing positive interaction and attention to your child to give them the very best tools needed to achieve in school. Our children are truly our number one concern.

Greetings in the name of Jesus Christ. I am the Rev. Jerry W. Krueger, pastor of Boardman United Methodist Church, and an ordained elder in the East Ohio United Methodist Conference.

 I am pleased to be able to serve in the Boardman community, as well as the surrounding Greater Youngstown area.  The mission of Boardman UMC is “to go and make disciples for the transformation of the world.”  But we all know that the transformation of the world, takes transformation of the self first.

Boardman UMC is a vibrant faith community with engaging people, people who understand that it is okay to probe into their faith beliefs, and as a result, come to a deeper understanding of their faith life, as formed in and through Jesus Christ.

I hope you will take time to visit with us at Boardman UMC, a God breathed, spiritually sound and gifted faith community called, Boardman United Methodist Church.

Joyfully in Christ,

Pastor Jerry

Our Beliefs as United Methodist Christians

As Christians who are United Methodist’s, we at Boardman United Methodist Church believe in God the Father, the Son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. We understand that each of us are given opportunity to accept Christ as Savior, and that a faith community is important to our spiritual growth and maturity. This lifelong process of spiritual maturity, requires that we take an active part in our own faith development through our prayers, our presence, our gifts, our service and witness.

We understand that God’s gift of Grace is offered to each of us, and we have the free will to accept or reject that gift.

At Boardman UMC we want you to feel welcome, to begin to grow into mature disciples of Jesus Christ.  We also want you to be part of this congregation by engaging in study, in worship, and in service to the greater community around us.

Join us for fellowship, and worship time in God’s holy presence, as we grow into mature disciples who help transform the world around us, for Jesus Christ.
