About BFMC

Thanks again for visiting!  Take a minute or too to learn a little more
about our church, our culture, and who we are at BFMC.

Culture

BFMC is a place where everyone is welcome, because everyone matters to God.  It sees like these days we’ve become not so good and enjoying life, but rather have become experts at enduring life.  So worship at BFMC is joyful, casual, yet very thoughtful and meaningful. 

God’s Word teaches us that whenever we enter into His presense, we will leave diffferently than how we arrived; more like Jesus.

History

The first Society of the Brockport Free Methodist Church was in 1861.  Since then, after many seasons, we are thankful to be used by God to carry out our mission in this world.
