Dear Friends, People have been asking about our worship timeline. I am sending along this excerpt of the Bishop’s email last week that I hope answers your questions.


The Governor has deferred to churches and leaders of churches to use wise judgement on best ways to resume gathering for worship and ministry in the weeks ahead. The state plan lists specific guidance for churches which can be found at


What about our work and worship as United Methodists in Indiana? In a recent communication, as your Bishop I asked United Methodist churches not to plan to meet before May 17. We believe it is still wise to plan “in person” worship no sooner than June 14. Further, in concert with the state’s guidance regarding protecting those among us who may be more vulnerable, 65 and older or those with health concerns, all congregations are encouraged to consider gathering plans that are more conservative than the ones allowed in stages 2-5 of the state plan.


As the Bishop has requested, we will comply with his recommendation. I just thought you should know!! Of course, if you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to call the office.


Yours in Christ,

Pastor Kurt Nichols
