Vida Nueva Descubriendo Indy 2018
Descubriendo Indy has taken place as a part of Vida Nueva's ministry for over 13 years. The vision since the conception of the program has always been for children to discover new things about their city, Indianapolis, and in the process discover new things about themselves. The camp will reach 25 participants Kindergarten-fourth grade focusing particularly on providing services for those in the Latino community.  The camp is translingual and transcultural, meaning the they recognize the ways that the families and especially the young people in the immigrant households that Vida Neuva serves flow between languages and cultures.

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 has followed up with Lisa Morris, Metro Ministries Executive Director, during the year as she completed her freshman year at Indiana State University expressing how blessed she was to experience the love of our church family.  Her recent email following the announcement she shared, “Thank you so much for the email and opportunity!
