UMC Change the World Project, Sunday, May 15

Change the World is a movement to connect United Methodists across the world in service on May 14th-15th. BCUMC will be reaching out on this Sunday in connection with Bless the Children, Inc. to the Children of the Dump in Nicaragua and helping change the lives of these children who live in such deplorable conditions.
