Indiana Bishop Mike Coyner has released the Pre-Lenten Worship Service schedule. These services are intended for the clergy of our Indiana Conference to help prepare them to lead their congregations through Lent. The services are open to pastors' spouses and interested laity. Anyone can choose to attend any of these services. Each service will include a sermon by Bishop, Coyner, Holy Communion, and liturgy for the Lenten season.

In previous years, Bishop Coyner has conducted two of these services - one in North Conference and one in South Conference. He said, "As we move into the new Indiana Conference, I am offering five of these services for the regions around our state. These dates begin the two days before Ash Wednesday, Feb. 25."

Here is the schedule;

  • Monday, Feb. 23, 10:30 a.m. at Jasper Shiloh UMC
  • Monday, Feb. 23, 3 p.m. at Franklin Grace UMC
  • Tuesday, Feb. 24, 10:30 a.m at Fort Wayne Aldersgate UMC
