Ways to Step Up Step Up! 2012 is our year-long emphasis of five core practices that lead to a stronger faith and a more vibrant church. These practices include: worship, connect, invite, serve and give. Check our website, www.bumc.net and click on “Step Up” for a list of specific ways you can step up this month.
