A dinner was held at the church on May 22, 2013 at 5:30 followed by an interesting presentation by Rev. Kit Snyder concerning the on-going support by the church to the Africa University. The Upper New York Annual Conference of The United Methodist Church has embarked on a three-year campaign to endow scholarships for Africa University in Mutare, Zimbabwe. Pastor Kit delighted those in attendance with stories of the Snyder family's time in Africa and shared memorabilia collected while living there.  The need for continuing support for the University was emphasized.  This cause was adopted as a mission by BUMC, and funds were collected and presented at Annual Conference.  Our Lay Leader, Wilma, was proud of the amount of money collected from our little church in a short amount of time.
