The Conference Board of Laity, in partnership with the Cabinet, is encouraging local churches to engage in Mission Indiana 2015: Share Your Story as missional experience to impact communities across the Hoosier state. Churches are asked to plan local mission activities during the week leading up to AC2015, Saturday May 23 through Saturday, May 30. To share the mission opportunities, churches are asked to provide information to district lay leaders and assistants for others to participate. A special showing of the statewide movement will be planned during the conference. Share Your Story.

Join us Tuesday, May 26 for an Indy Racing theme Picnic. Come experience food and fellowship as we Connect, Grow and Serve through Jesus Christ. GUMC Kitchen Ministry provides support for The Shepherd’s Table which is a free lunch program for our community.
Bread & Bowl is a soup kitchen that feeds 100 to 300 individuals each week. Visitors may receive a hot meal in addition to taking home bags that include soup, salad, bread, and dessert. This ministry is supported in part through a partnership with Second Helpings, Inc., which provides hot meals and a culinary school for people living at or below the poverty line.
In the fall of 2007 my PUMC Christ Care group began the journey of taking the love of Jesus Christ to the streets or Indianapolis. With guidance from a former homeless man, Ed Carlton, we chose Wednesday evenings as the night to take home cooked food to homeless men and women that were living under bridges in camps on the near east side of the city.
Ironically, some of the brightest, most hopeful stories come from people who face multiple challenges in life. The people I am referring to is Mizo (Burmese) Methodist congregation.
Tyler Gough, who runs the Indy Urban Acres, funded by the Indianapolis Parks Department is leading a garden project. His mission is food security and he runs an 8 acre organic farm just off 21st and Franklin. The majority of the produce goes to food pantries, including the Old Bethel food pantry, but they also serve an elementary school. Much education takes place as school groups are invited for field trips and he also runs a summer internship for high school students.
