For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ. For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body-

1 Corinthians 12:12-13a


This verse has inspired our Life Together team. As a result, we are opening Life Together 2020 to all who choose to attend as a part of our connected body of Christ. The purpose of the event has not changed - to gather to worship and learn as a part of our sacred commitment to continued discipleship and the building of the body of Christ.


We are removing restrictions that the resources poured into this day might benefit a wider understanding of Together.


On March 23-24, 2020 at St Luke's UMC in Indianapolis, Life Together #Missional will be open to any who want to come and pray, worship and learn together. Singer-songwriter Amy Cox will be leading worship.  Author and nationally known speaker Carlos Whittaker will bring Monday's teaching.


As you prepare to come, you are encouraged to ask, who do you know who would benefit from a time apart to focus on prayer and praise?  Who do you know whose ability to proclaim Christ would be strengthened by Whittaker's message?  Who do you want sitting with you as you consider how next to open ministry to God's leadership? Invite them to join you.


 A quick reminder - LifeTogether is a registration-only event for which there is a fee.  The fee pays for some of the costs associated with meals, supplies, and other costs associated with venue and the speakers we've brought in. Because of the need to commit to meals and other costs, we cannot accept late registrations.
