Fletcher Place Hot Meals Program

Fletcher Place Community Center Hot Meals program impacts the southeast neighborhood that currently has only three full-service grocery stores. For those limited by financial and transportation resources, this makes acquiring fresh vegetables and fruits difficult.

The primary impact of the Hot Meals program is engaging ministry with the poor, with over 18,000 meals served to individuals in the community in 2018. Not only does the program have this direct impact on individuals served, it also allows many volunteers from numerous churches to meet their own mission goals through service, including bringing in young people to volunteer in mission work at a local level. 

The mission of Fletcher Plase is to “compassionately provide programs that ease the burden of low to moderate income individuals who struggle with life’s basic needs."  Fletcher Place programming focuses on hunger, immediate needs and education.

Brookside Scholarships Awarded 2018

Members of the former Brookside United Methodist Church have provided opportunities to students that have decided to further their education to receive support through their Legacy endowment established when the church closed in 2008. The scholarship fund was established with the United Methodist Foundation of Indiana to be distributed annually by Metro Ministries to qualified candidates for a scholarship to a post-secondary school. 

Felicia Renteria

Felicia Renteria is a sophomore at Indiana State University. This is Felicia’s second scholarship from the Brookside legacy. We met Felicia last year as an incoming freshman at Indiana State University. She is majoring in Psychology, and her goal is to own her own business as a therapist or social worker. Felicia has followed up with Lisa Morris, Metro Ministries Executive Director, during the year as she completed her freshman year at Indiana State University. Felicia expressed how blessed she was to experience the love of our church family. Following the annoucement, she shared in her recent email, “Thank you so much for the email and opportunity! I'm so thankful for you all!”

This is such a blessing. I cannot express how thankful I am!”
