Demolition to begin May 14, 2018

 For over 48 years the church building located at 2410 N. Station Street, Indianapolis 46218 has served as the former St. Paul United Methodist Church and the home of Brightwood Community Center. Now due to structural issues, Metro Ministries, Inc., the owner of the building and land, is having the building torn down – but the ministries continue in new locations!

 The St. Paul United Methodist Church congregation merged with Forest Manor United Methodist Church in 2017 and is now known as Miracles and Blessings United Methodist Church, located at 34th Street & Forest Manor Street, Indianapolis, Indiana, 46218.

 Brightwood Community Center moved to the Washington Park Family Center, 3130 E. 30th Street, Indianapolis, Indiana, 46218 in 2017 and continues to serve children and families with after-school and summer enrichment programming. Their Summer Enrichment Camp registration is held at Washington Park Family Center, 3130 E. 30th Street, Indianapolis, IN, June 25-July 20, 2018, 8 am-4:30 pm (cost $150 first child, $50 each additional child in the family); registration is now open! Please contact Brightwood Community Center Executive Director, LeRae Troutman, at 317-546-8200 or brightwoodcc@gmail.com.

 As part of its commitment to the ongoing and future needs of Brightwood Community Center, the Metro Ministries, Inc. Board of Directors is working with the Brightwood Community Center Board of Directors to explore future use of the land located at 2410 N. Station Street.  We invite interested partners to help discern future use and processes by contacting Brightwood Community Center director brightwoodcc@gmail.com. Metro Ministries, Inc. is the mission arm of the United Methodist Church in Central Indiana that connects resources to ministries.

Come out for the tastings from local restaurants, entertainment, grab bag praffle, and live/silent auction. Admission is easy! Simply bring a $10 Kroger gift card (to be used for their food pantry) or pay $15 at the door. Children under 12 are free, but must be accompanised by an adult and bring a non-perishable food item to help stock the pantry. Read More
