Spiritual & Pastoral Care

As a faith community, we seek to be responsive to the needs of people in our church and in our community.

Our pastor, and other caregivers in the church, regularly visit, when possible, with those who are in the hospital, awaiting surgery, or recovering at home.  Our focus is the spiritual well-being of the person who is going through a difficult time.  We extend an invitation to prayer at each visit. 

The pastor and other caregivers also seek to regularly visit those who are home-bound,

offer them prayer, as well as Holy Communion.  

In addition to visits - people within the Buckhall community pray for individuals during worship and then send them notes and cards of encouragement, hope, or sympathy. 

If you'd like to, or know someone in our community who needs and would appreciate care such as this, please contact our church office via email or phone - 703.368.0276 - please leave a detailed message with full names and best contact information.

Wedding Ceremonies

Pastor Sean is available to officiate weddings, both at BUMC, and at other venues. He requires that the couple participate in and complete premarital counseling.  Please contact Pastor Sean or the church office to schedule a time to discuss setting up your wedding.


Pastor Sean is available to officiate funerals; at the church, in a funeral home, and/or graveside.  

In consultation with the family, we seek to create a service that is meaningful to the family, honors God, and reflects the life of their loved one. If a death occurs in your family, and you desire a pastoral care visit or call, or would like Pastor Sean to conduct the funeral, please call the office (703.368.0276) and leave a detailed message, including best contact information, and Pastor Sean will be in touch with you as soon as possible.
