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 until further notice.
Re-Opening: Plan of action
We are currently meeting for in-person worship on Sunday mornings at
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.
Due to the swiftly changing nature of the COVID-19 crisis, all information and dates in this plan could change.
For all Adult Study / Support / Prayer Groups: (beginning September 13, 2020)
Children's Ministries / Youth Ministries:
* Children's Church is now available during the 11:00 AM service only for children aged 3 - Pre-K. Kids MUST come masked and we will sanitize hands and social distance accordingly.
* Beginning October 4th, the Nursery will be open at 10:45 AM for the second service only, and will be allowing children aged 3 and under to participate. Our staff will be taking extra precautions, including self-temperature checks, hand sanitizing and wearing masks.
* Beginning October 4th, the Temple Youth will once again be meeting - VIRTUALLY - on Sunday nights from 6:00 - 7:00 PM. For the foreseeable future, we will continue to meet virtually on Zoom with the hope of transitioning back to in-person gatherings when it is safe to do so. Contact Youth Director Jamie Clark (email@example.com) if you wish to receive the link for the Zoom gatherings.
As of September 13, 2020, groups are welcome to meet in our facility, provided the guidelines in the detailed plan below are followed.
SAMs Mid-Week Worship service has taken the place (for the time being) of our SAMs luncheon held on the third Thursday of every month.
Join us October 15th for a traditional worship service complete with hymns, a devotion from Pastor Andy and appropriately socially-distanced fellowship. We hope to see you there!
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!
