You are welcome in the Indiana Conference of The United Methodist Church!
If your church has disaffiliated from The United Methodist Church, know that there is still a place for you in the Indiana Conference. You are not alone. In fact, you are still part of a family of hundreds of congregations and thousands of people in Indiana alone.
During this time of change, here are some resources that may be helpful:
Join a Facebook Group of Indiana United Methodists like you!
Share your story. Interact with other Hoosier United Methodists whose churches have disaffiliated. Hear the latest information about connecting opportunities and resources. Share prayer concerns. Be encouraged!
Wish to have your membership continue in The United Methodist Church?
If you’re a member of a disaffiliated United Methodist Church, your membership will officially end after the Annual Conference approves your church’s disaffiliation. To retain your membership, you need to join another United Methodist Church.
