Updates & Announcements from Methodist Temple


Office Closure

The office will be closed tomorrow, July 4th, in observance of Independence Day.

July Missional Partner

This month's missional partner is the United Methodist Youth Home.

The United Methodist Youth Home helps at-risk youth become productive and responsible members of our community. It is their vision that our community will be transformed by educating youth on the life skills necessary to be successful and free from the cycle of abuse, poverty, crime, and trauma. Visit their website here and watch the video below to see how you can get involved!

Ladies' Night Out

Our next Ladies Night Out event will be Friday, July 12th at 6:00pm. Back by popular demand, we will be going axe throwing at Birdies (120 NW Martin Luther King Jr Blvd, Evansville, IN 47708). Enjoy a fun night displaying your axe throwing skills with friends and good food! The axe throwing lanes are covered and food is available for purchase! Axe throwing starts at 6:30pm, so you'll be able to place your food order before then!

Please RSVP to Cass Brusie at no later than Monday, July 8th.

Men's Breakfast

Join us for our next Men’s Breakfast on Saturday, July 20th! The free breakfast and fellowship begin at 8:00am (enter through Door G off of Kelsey St.). Our speaker will be Chief Justice Randall Shepard. To learn more about Chief Justice Shepard, click here.
