ANNUAL CONFERENCE 2020
Last week, we announced that our Annual Conference Session scheduled for June 11-13 is being postponed. Instead, we will meet on two separate Saturdays: August 15 and October 10.
Below, you'll find details surrounding this change. We will be updating our website
inumc.org/annual-conference with new information as it becomes available.
The 2020 Indiana Annual Conference Session, originally scheduled June 11-13, 2020, has been postponed and redesigned to be two one-day sessions.
The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in government officials mandating “stay at home orders,” prohibiting group gatherings. It is expected, yet not confirmed, that gatherings with a large number of people will be possible in the future.
Bishops in The United Methodist Church have instructed us to remain faithful in being the Church while following the orders of state officials. There is a need to do the essential work of Annual Conference without putting lives at risk. It is our belief that one-day gatherings that allow for social distancing will be possible.
The first session is on August 15, 2020. The second session is on October 10, 2020. Each session will convene at 10 am EST / 9 am CST and adjourn at 6 pm EST / 5pm CST.
The first session on August 15 will be on the campus of Indiana Wesleyan University in Marion, Indiana. This allows for social distancing space as well as outdoor space for community. The second session on October 10 will be at St. Luke’s United Methodist Church in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Please check the Indiana Conference United Methodist Church website for additional details, which will be posted as they are available.
Let us be in prayer and continue to BE the Church living as people of the resurrection.

The life of a United Methodist pastor is filled with a variety of responsibilities. They preach, teach, visit, counsel, lead, consult, communicate, budget, clean, and so much more.
Pastoring a church is not a job that can be done well under the pastor’s power alone. Every pastor relies heavily on God’s guidance, strength and peace as they live into their call.
One of the best ways we can support our pastors and show them our appreciation is to regularly pray for them. But it can be difficult to know exactly what we should pray for. To help get started, we’ve assembled fifteen areas of pastors’ lives and ministries where they would value your prayers.

we can pray for our pastor.
