It's that simple.

Jesus summarized what life is all about:  love the Lord with all that you are and love your neighbor as yourself.  At Branches we live this out in a unique way.  Branches is both a church and a non-profit organization.  The church (Branches UMC) keeps us connected to God.  The non-profit (Branches Inc.) keeps us connected to the community.  For more information on Branches Inc, click here.

What does this mean?  It means that there are endless opportunities to get involved.  From tutoring elementary kids in our after school ministry to participating in a discipleship group, there is a place for you. 


Discipleship Groups

Discipleship groups are small groups of people that meet for three months at a time with the express purpose of becoming like Jesus.  These groups emphasize practice over information.  To join a group, contact Tony Baurichter at


MOPS of Homestead

MOPS is an international ministry that connects moms to other moms and to God.  This group meets every other Tuesday morning.  Contact Dalia Baurichter at to sign up.  Childcare is provided.


 The Connection

The Connection allows our community to create dynamic relationships over a family-style meal.  Join us as we share dinner on the fourth Thursday of every month starting at 6:30pm.  Contact Kim Torres at for more info.


Service 13:35

At Branches we believe that God calls us to make an impact in the world.  Service 13:35 (named after John 13:35) provides opportunities to do just that.  Contact Ismael Ferniza at to participate.
