4/5/2020 worship service

You can still dial in just like last week by calling: (312) 626-6799, or (929) 205-6099. The meeting ID is: 383 594 592

To join Zoom online, click on the following link with your internet-connected device: https://us04web.zoom.us/j/383594592

We’ll start at 10:30am, so please dial in a few minutes early (I’ll try to be on by 10:15 to help folks get on). Please be aware that folks may be able to see you and your surroundings if you join via video. But, you don’t need a video camera or a microphone to watch and hear the service. Be aware that charges may apply to dial in connections. Internet connections are free! Call Pastor Kevin at (618) 795-2095 if you have any questions.

As in weeks past, here is the worship service for this coming Palm Sunday in both Word and .PDF. The Word document has links to the hymns if you’d like. PDF’s are often easier for your computer to open. I’ve also attached a copy of what might have been on the front page of the April Bell Ringer had we published one. I’ve also provided the link to the Bishop’s Weekly message if these have been helpful: https://www.igrc.org/bishop-messages.

I’m still recommending www.d365.org as a source for daily meditation and devotion.

(Which reminds me – we still have a lot of Upper Room’s available. Let me know if you’d like one and I’ll drop it in the mail to you.)

Finally, check out @bluemoundunitedmethodistchurch on FaceBook, and our website at: bmumc113.org We’ve been trying to keep the content fresh and up to date.


I hope this finds you well! We are going to try something new this week – church via conference call. The number and access code are provided below.

While this may be old hat to some, it may be brand new for others. Here’s how it works. Church will start at 10:30 tomorrow morning. Please call the number below a couple of minutes before then, dial the access code when prompted, and your connection should begin (you should hear other callers on the line). We’ll take a few minutes for folks to join, but feel free to call in at any time – even 10 minutes late – just join quietly, without announcing yourself. You may call via home phone, cell phone, or via computer/iPad. Please note: some charges may apply. Also, proper etiquette asks you to mute your phone if able – it makes it easier for everyone to hear – please be in a quiet place if you are unable to mute.

Here is the info you need:

Dial-in number (US): (978) 990-5000
Access code: 722468#
Online meeting ID: kdsamk24

Join the online meeting: https://join.freeconferencecall.com/kdsamk24
For additional assistance connecting to the meeting text “Help” to the Dial-In number above. Message and data rates may apply.

I’ve attached Worship Files (one is a Word file, complete with hyperlinks to several worship elements; one is a PDF in case you can’t open the Word file) for you to use whether you join the call or not. It’s set up much like last week’s Worship at Home package.

Also, here is the link to the Bishop’s weekly message if you would like: https://www.igrc.org/bishop-messages.

I am still encouraging folks to look into www.d365.org for a daily devotional, and to check out @bluemoundunitedmethodistchurch on FaceBook, and our website at: bmumc113.org We’ve been trying to keep the content fresh and up to date.

Finally, please send me your feedback, thoughts and ideas on how we can best serve you during these times. If something works, we’ll keep it up, if something doesn’t work, there is no need to keep it up.

I hope you’ll join us in the morning – pray that it works!

Pastor Kevin


Good Sunday Morning! Since we are unable to gather together in Worship this morning, I thought I’d put together a package that I hope you find meaningful.

First, you may follow this link to a message from our Bishop. https://www.igrc.org/bishop-messages He’s a great preacher, and I’m sure you’ll enjoy his message.

Also, if you find yourself in need of a good daily devotional, I highly recommend the one found at www.d365.org. A friend recently recommended it to me, and I’m really impressed by it. Better still, it is also available as an app you can download to your phone through your App Store.
