Welcome to Our Church

Today’s scripture is one of the more interesting ones we encounter as we journey through the gospels. As we read through it, did you notice the problem with it? It’s not good advice. Usually Jesus gives us something to work with, but if you are looking for any kind of moral lesson or advice to give your kids, be careful, because you have to look really hard – at least it seems that way.

On August 5, 2010, 33 miners became trapped when Chile's San Jose mine collapsed. Over the next 69 days, the miners battled starvation and hopelessness as the world watched and waited until all were brought to safety. Even though these miners endured an extremely traumatic ordeal, they share something in common with the lost coin and the lost sheep – without outside intervention, they would remain lost.

Do you think the crowds got smaller? Luke shares that at this point of Jesus’ journey to Jerusalem, large crowds were travelling with him. Perhaps they were attracted to his brashness, or, his confrontational style with the Pharisees. Perhaps they were amazed by his ministry of healing.

Upcoming Events

Support for Ukraine

The Indiana Conference recently donated $10,000 of its Disaster Relief fund to United Methodist Committee On Relief (UMCOR) and its humanitarian relief efforts as a result of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Bishop Trimble said, “I encourage our churches to give generously to help our brothers and sisters overseas. Through this disaster, we have already seen the value of our Connection, as the aid coming through is helping connect families that need shelter with United Methodists in nearby countries.”

If you or your church have been wondering about tangible ways to help those suffering amid the tragedies we have seen reported, you are encouraged to support the UMCOR response. Remember that one hundred percent of all Advance contributions go to the designated cause.

Donations can be made directly to UMCOR, Advance #982450. Or donations can be made to the Indiana Conference. Or text the word “Ukraine" to 855.389.1555.
