Methodist Temple strives to be a safe, nonjudgmental community in Jesus' name. We live out this vision by nurturing life-giving connections, practicing generous givenness, and cultivating presence to the Presence of God.
Based on Governor Holcomb's recent mask mandate for the state of Indiana, masks will be REQUIRED when entering the building beginning July 24.
Re-Opening: Plan of action

8:30 AM and 11:00 AM.
If you're joining us for the first time since the shutdown due to COVID-19, please check out our "What to Expect" video on our Messages & Media page for helpful information.
SMALL GROUP RE-OPENING PLAN
Due to the swiftly changing nature of the COVID-19 crisis, all information and dates in this plan could change. Also, per our governor's guidance we want to encourage everyone to wear face masks (not only is this good practice, it serves as a witness to others).

In response to the COVID-19 virus and the shut-down it created, our pastors, Pastor Andy and Pastor JillAnn, began their mid-week podcast as a way to stay in touch with our Methodist Temple family and 'keep the conversation going,' so to speak. We hope you enjoy their podcasts!
