Aging and Senior Care Resources
Many aging adults are unaware of the available care options and programs that can help them maintain their independence and quality of life. So we created a free resource that provides comprehensive information on topics like financial support and in-home care options that are available in their area.

The Blessing Box
The Blessing Box is a no obligation zone. “Take what you need. Leave what you can.” The box is up and is located along the driveway that connects the two buildings. It is on the east side - you can't miss it! This will be filled with items that will help those in need – everything from non-perishable food to toiletries.
Storm response efforts began early this past weekend after tornados and strong thunderstorms swept across Indiana, leaving behind loss and devastation. Our prayers surround our fellow Hoosiers, including those who reside and serve in six of our districts: West, Southeast, Central, Northwest, North Central, and Northeast. Thankfully, we have not received reports of any churches being damaged. Our care and response remain focused on individuals, families, and surrounding communities.
Authorities and first responders are still assessing the damage. We are forming a plan along with federal and state agencies and other non-profits to assess and prepare for the long-term recovery process that will be required. We are grateful that United Methodists have already begun to respond as individuals, through their local churches, districts, and the Conference. We know that other organizations have also been providing response efforts, and sometimes that makes us want to respond with even more urgency. UMCOR and United Methodists are known as being the last to leave when people are in need. There will be many opportunities for us to respond and serve in the days, months, and years to come.
Here is a list of the immediate needs as of today:
