Due To The Weather, We Will Cancel The Sunday Jan 5 2014 Service

 

Welcome! Broad Ripple United Methodist Church is an open congregation in the heart of Broad Ripple village seeking to join God's missions of loving all people unconditionally and bringing reconciliation and justice to places of suffering and oppression. We are making a difference, one relationship at a time, in Broad Ripple and beyond.

We are in the midst of an exciting time of rebirth following the discernment and adoption of a new vision and an extensive renovation and reorientation of our sanctuary and gathering space. As part of our vision, we focus on a particular way of life that is relationship-oriented: We deepen relationship with each other and our neighbors one at a time as a way of deepening relationship with God. Why this relationship focus? Read about it.

Special Guest Preacher Last Sunday
Reverend Harold GoodReverend Harold Good, born in 1937 in Derry, Northern Ireland, followed in his father's footsteps into the Methodist ministry. At about the same point in his ministry career where Pastor Brent is today, he served for several years in Ohio and Indiana, during which time he was active in the Civil Rights movement.

When he returned home to Northern Ireland not long after the assassination of Martin Luther King, his ministry was right in the heart of the sectarian conflict between Catholics and Protestants. He was witness to the consequences of brutal murders: "I wasn't isolated in an ivory tower. I know the pain inflicted by terrorists." He had to draw on the philosophy of John Wesley: "be friends of all and enemies of none."

Our congregation grieves with the rest of the city as we lay to rest a police officer killed Fourth of July weekend while responding to gunfire. We grieve for the many others killed and wounded in so much violence in our city, including the 7 wounded just down the street that same weekend. We grieve the use of violence in any form, and we are working in a variety of ways to join God's peacemaking work. Read Pastor Brent's blog entry about this. 




You are welcome, as you are, to join us in worshiping God every Sunday morning at 10:40am.

Nursery care and special activities for older kids are available during worship services.
