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.


Karl HinkleThis Sunday's worship service will be a special treat: in place of our usual order of service, our friend Karl Hinkle will be leading the entire service with his warm, relaxed presence and his heart-swelling music. Come enjoy a break from our regular routine with Karl.

Karl makes a living singing Christian music and is paid for his work simply by the gifts of those who hear him. We'll receive two offerings on Sunday, the regular offering for BRUMC's ministry, and a second offering for Karl's ministry. Please plan to give to both.

 Read about Karl here; you'll find some of his career history and reflections about what he does and why he does it, which include:
I come on a free-will offering basis, so churches and organizations with a variety of budgets are able to bring me in.  Over the years I have ministered in churches of over 7,000 and churches of less than 50 and everything in between. ...


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.
