Keeping valuables secure
Participants need to keep valuables with them in fanny packs or back packs on the Day of Outreach. There will be no provisions to keep valuables, such as purses, in secure places. Please don’t leave valuables on buses, shuttles or at the church launch site.
Day of Outreach T-shirts will be distributed in Emens Auditorium Lobby
The Day of Outreach T-shirts will be distributed from a table in the main lobby of Emens. The T-shirt table will be open from 7:30 a.m. on Thursday through Saturday noon. Participants will receive a ticket by mail to exchange for a T-shirt in the lobby.
631 participants registered, plus hosts
There are 631 participants registered for the Day of Outreach, plus 65 local United Methodists who will be hosting this Muncie-wide event. Registration is now closed for the Day of Outreach.
Transportation provided by Annual Conference
Transportation for Day of Outreach participants will begin from Emens Auditorium at noon. Volunteers will be dismissed by projects. Everyone should be dismissed from Emens by 12:30 to be on their way to a church-based launch site for their lunch and instructions about afternoon activities. All buses and shuttles will return to Emens by 5 p.m. The Outreach Celebration Service will begin at 7:30 p.m. Participants are encouraged to wear their T-shirts during this time of celebration.
