There will be more things added to our system in the days, weeks and months to come.


Sunday 2/28, One-time Service at the YMCA

Hi friends,

On Sunday, February 28, 2021, we will be doing a one-time trial run service at the Irsay Family YMCA in downtown Indianapolis. This is not a full-scale move. For example, the Project Love food pantry will be open as usual after service at School 18.

Make sure you have what you need, like crackers or whatever – and let’s make sure those among us who shouldn’t go out to the grocery store have what they need too. It will be different, for sure, but I think it will still be a great experience.
  2. Our 9am Sunday prayer time together has kind of fallen off the radar. Let’s get that back on track in a virtual format. Nicole Cornett has agreed to be the point person for that, so please start by connecting with her on it. Here is a great reminder from David Guzik on the importance of prayer, especially at this time.
