05/28/21: COVID-19 Updates

Based on recent COVID-19 updates from the CDC, our MN Governor, and the MN Conference of the United Methodist Church, we are excited to share good news regarding gatherings in our local churches of the Prairie Lakes Parish.  Thank you for sharing the love of Christ as we work together to continue to care for one another and those in our communities.  Link to our 05.28.21 congregational update for full details. 


Worship Times

  • 8:15 A.M. Worship - Blooming Grove UMC

COVID Considerations:  We will continue to be careful and celebrate our connection in ways that feel safe and inclusive, including the following:  

  • Providing sanitizing stations at each entrance - with masks, hand-sanitizer, and sanitizing wipes available for persons to use as needed.  
  • Accessing bulletins through “self-serve pick-up”.
  • Gathering offerings in free-standing offering plates.  
  • Beginning in June, Holy Communion will be offered during morning worship on the first Sunday of each month, as well was for special occasions.  We will partake of community as the community from our places in our seats - using individually wrapped communion elements.  Holy Communion will also continue to be offered through our Facebook page as well.


To enter BGUMC during construction:  Come in the front double doors of the new addition, walk north through the hallway that runs along the new restrooms, and enter the original ground-level SE door.


On-Line Worship:  Please note that our online service (available through the Prairie Lakes Parish Facebook page) will continue.   Each Sunday's pre-recorded worship video is led by Pastor Kathy King and is available for viewing at or after 8:00 A.M. through our Prairie Lakes Parish Facebook page.  A Facebook "Watch Party" frequently gathers at the 8:00 A.M. time slot and shares messages back and forth with one another through the Facebook comments section - we hope you can join us!  The service recording will then also be posted on our BGUMC Facebook page.
