2021 is the first fully-digital Annual Conference in the history of the Indiana Conference. You can view the summary of the conference here.
You can watch the celebration of life video here.
Bishop Trimble shared an impassioned Episcopal Address entitled Awesome and Amazing. Bishop shared several examples of how God has been at work in the Indiana Conference in the last year, from church plants and Fresh Expressions to virtual Bible studies and baptisms. He declared, “Thank you, God, for signs of Pentecost and prayer power, for constant sightings and signs of Jesus and justice!”
2022 ANNUAL CONFERENCE
We are planning to meet in person June 9-11, 2022, at Indiana Wesleyan University in Marion, Indiana.
This is an invitation for you to grow closer in your relationship with Jesus. We have six different stations set up around the church. Each station can be a time of prayer and reflection. They are in different settings with different focuses. You can do as many or as few as you would like and you can do them as many times as you would like. The stations will be available all through Lent. You can visit on Sunday mornings 9-11:30a.m. Mondays & Wednesdays 8:30-12:30p.m. and Wednesday, February 24th 9a.m.-6:30p.m. If you have any questions, please call the church.
We will have Ash Wednesday service on February 17th at 6:30 p.m.
For those who are unable to make it to service, we will offer drive-thru imposition of ashes and a prayer between 10:00 a.m. and Noon. You can drive through the circle in the parking lot.
When did Ash Wednesday begin and why do we celebrate it?
Ash Wednesday begins the season of Lent, a time when many Christians prepare for Easter by observing a period of fasting, repentance, moderation and spiritual discipline. Although Ash Wednesday has ancient roots, it does not appear in the rituals of The United Methodist Church or our predecessor denominations until the 20th century. READ MORE HERE
