Confronting racism is not just a social or political matter, but a theological one. It is the Bible that calls us to pursue justice, and the Bible that calls us to oppose racism. This two-week class will be guided by videos based on a sermon series and the anti-racism commitment at St. Luke UMC in Indianapolis, followed by opportunities for discussion.

Frisco Helpers

Even during this difficult time of COVID, the Frisco Helpers (FH) Ministry continued to provide household repair, maintenance, and safety services to the seniors and special-needs residents of Frisco. They placed a heavy focus on safety aids—grab bars in bath areas to provide support for those who are at risk for falling, installation of toilet safety frames and wheelchair ramps, and off-set door hinges to provide a safer and a more accessible environment.

Mayfield Family – Joyfully Connected

In Our Stories by Kim Eiffert

Harper’s grandparents live out in the country so we visit often bringing them produce and sweet treats. We walk around their flower gardens and look for bugs, we bird watch, plant seeds and give great “air hugs”. Our visits have given us special, peaceful, yet still distanced, time with the grandparents without the added commotion of a big family event. The time with them has been very precious.
