Need to know what's happening in the church building throughout the week? This is your place to look!
Summer Time Change
For the months of July and August we are moving our second worship service from 10:45am to 11:00am. We hope this will provide more opportunity for people to interact between services and allow more time for people to find appropriate parking in the parking lot.
Family Promise Clothing Drive
On Aug 2, the clothing drive for Family Promise begins. Per program rules, clothing needs to be in white kitchen garbage bags with only clothing [of any size]. The bags are given to Goodwill and Family Promise gets a $5 gift card for each bag donated. These Goodwill gift cards are given to families so that they are able to get clothing and things for their new homes. Please place white bags in the donation bins at the east and west entrances to ZUMC.
Wheelchair Ramp Build
Volunteers are needed to help with wheel chair ramp builds on Saturday mornings, August 10 and 17, 8:30-12:30. Each will be built on the west side of Indianapolis near the airport. These ramps are built with donated material and labor at no charge for low income families, who can’t navigate their wheelchairs up or down their steps. Email Walt Maxson (walt@Maxsonbuild.com) to participate or to receive emails about future ramp builds. Also see www.sawsramps.org.

The Color of Compromise
In September Sherman Whitfield and Bob Grimm will facilitate a discussion on the book "The Color of Compromise" by Jemar Tisby. The book provides a detailed analysis of the White church’s involvement with African Americans from the time of slavery through today. The book can be purchased online. Please obtain your copy ahead of time. We will hold three discussions at ZUMC in September with dates still TBD and will center on: 1. What the book causes the reader to “think" about 2. How the book makes one "feel" emotionally and 3. What one can “do" as a result of knowledge gleaned from the book to impact positive change in society. The hopeful outcome of the discussion series is to help participants to: 1). Understand the church’s historical role in racism; 2) Analyze how people of faith have helped or hindered racial justice; 3) Apply creative learning's to building racial unity that are pleasing to God.
