Out of the Heart of our community
we welcome ALL
into this safe {and sacred} space.

Out of the Heart of our community
we welcome ALL
to come and know the heart of God.

Out of the Heart of our community
we welcome ALL
to share their lives in service with us
into ALL the world.

It is out of the heart of our collective understanding of God’s complete and unconditional love that we invite, encourage support, love, and welcome ALL in our Bay View, Milwaukee community.

We are worshiping live in the sanctuary. Come join us in person at Bay View UMC at 9:45am worship. Masks are encouraged at this time.

If you can’t make it in, or are just here to check us out, see our links to our facebook and Youtube feeds for live and recorded broadcasts of Sunday worship.

Please see our notice regarding audio/video recording and/or photography of services/events.

Your Accountable Leadership Board has been meeting monthly to discuss, and monitor the concerns of the church. As the various Orders from the State and local governments change, we want to share guidance on how we plan to continue church, and provide for the safety and wellbeing for all that would use our space. 

Ephesians 4:29 Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.

Masking Optional (05/24/22 Update)

Over the past few weeks, COVID numbers have increased throughout our community. The CDC now shows the Milwaukee community at a High transmission risk, and the Milwaukee Health Department has issued a Mask Advisory. Since March, the Accountable Leadership Board has prayerfully advocated a policy of “masks optional” at Bay View UMC, at church gatherings, and during worship services. 

We would now encourage you to wear masks while in the building, though not require it at this time. The ALB will take all input, and discuss things further in the coming week.

A few important points:

• Have grace with your neighbors, and continue to wear a mask as you see fit
• We encourage our community to wear masks should your vaccinations for Covid be incomplete
• We will retain live broadcasting of our services, as a continued outreach to our community
• We will continue to monitor all sources of information in case the need for another change arises (including CDC.gov)

We ask that no one should visit Bay View UMC–masked or otherwise–who has symptoms associated with COVID, the flu, or other respiratory illnesses.

As Bay View UMC continues in this summer season, we continue to be thankful for the many blessings in our lives. We look forward to gathering together this summer and fall in communal prayer and worship. May God bless us on this journey!

At any point due to changing circumstances, the church may decide to return to masking.
