"You were all called to travel on the same road and in the same direction, so stay together, both outwardly and inwardly. You have one Master, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who rules over all, works through all, and is present in all. Everything you are and think and do is permeated with Oneness." (The Message)

Annual Conference Backpacks for the Homeless

The Indiana United Methodist Churches are invited to bring items for our community homeless neighbors to the 2017 Indiana Annual Conference Session. We would love to see every church represented in our conference bring at least one filled backpack. Bring backpacks to the Board of Laity booth in the display area during the Annual Conference session. The filled backpacks will then be distributed to a ministry serving with the homeless in each District across Indiana.

The Four Areas of Focus express the vision and yearning of the people of The United Methodist Church. Find more information on the Four Areas of Focus at inumc.org/four. Narrowing our focus to these four areas allows churches to use their resources effectively as they live out God’s vision for the church. We are offering four workshops at 10:30 am, Friday, June 9 that will represent the areas of focus. We will also host New Member Orientation from 8:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.
