In the first large group gathering held since the COVID-19 pandemic, The United Methodist Church in Indiana made a significant impact through their Missional Offering: 2,463 school kits to provide for children in need and $111,425.25 were collected to support refugee resettlement.
The engines will be roaring at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway during the weekend of July 30–31, 2022, for the NASCAR Cup Series Race. Rev. Kent Lundy, UMC elder serving in extension ministry as Wing Chaplain to the 181st Intelligence Wing (IN Air National Guard) in Terre Haute, was selected to offer prayer at the event.
