Ladies fellowship Group
The next Ladies Fellowship Group meeting will be held on Saturday, June 22nd. We will be reading The Mercy Effect by Gary Petty. The church will be purchasing the books.  If you’d like to order one, please see Kim Ackley to add your name to the list.

Fellowship Luncheon
The next Fellowship Luncheon will be held on Wednesday, May 15th at 11:00 am. We will meet at the Trader's Point Noodles & Company restaurant.  The address is: 5710 West 86th St. Indianapolis. All are welcome to join us! Please let Kris Vincen know if you plan to attend. 

Emergency Phone Notification System Changes
We are reorganizing the Emergency Phone Notification System.  We will no longer be calling the entire congregation.  Instead we will be relying on e-mail notification.  For those of you without internet service, we will continue to notify you by phone.  Please see Mark or Kris Vincen if you DO NOT have internet service or still wish to be called for some reason.  This will greatly streamline the emergency Notification system.

Local Tithes     
Tithes and offerings may be sent to the Home Office in Cincinnati, OH or to the Indianapolis congregation.
If sending to the home office, checks or money orders should be made payable to UCGAIA and sent to
United Church of God AIA
PO Box 541027
Cincinnati, OH 45254

If sending to the local congregation, checks or money orders should be made payable to UCG-Indianapolis and sent to United Church of God
PO Box 781384
Indianapolis, IN 46278

Indianapolis also appreciates those who are willing to send their tithes locally. Having our own account, managed by the pastor and local board, allows flexibility to manage the day-to-day operations of the local congregation, as well as plan for the future needs of the church. A full review of the Indianapolis church budget is always available upon request. Ten percent of all local donations are sent to the Home Office; otherwise, the money is used for the operations of the local congregation, including planning for owning a future hall. The Indianapolis congregation does not receive any funds from the Home Office to handle local expenses.

Please note that local donations are also tax deductible and a receipt will be sent at year end for tax filing purposes.

Please show consideration to those in the congregation who are extremely sensitive to fragrances by refraining from wearing any scented products such as: Febreeze, perfumes, colognes, aftershaves, and scented lotions.
