Celebrating 200 Years in Ministry

Since its founding in 1821, Roberts Park has been the heart of downtown Indianapolis. As we celebrate 200 years in ministry together, we are reflecting on our past and looking forward to our future. To do so, we are inviting back former pastors to preach and lead worship, installing a new Timothy Schmalz sculpture, updating our terrace, and creating a time capsule. We are also celebrating with our sister church, Meridian Street UMC, by doing a "pulpit swap" and co-hosting a gala. For details of all of these exciting events, please see our events page or join us on Facebook.

LGBTQIA+ Affirming

We are proud members of the Reconciling Ministries Network and outspoken advocates for people of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and expressions.  We believe that we are called to "resist evil, injustice, and oppression in whatever forms they present themselves."

For more information, visit rmnetwork.org.

As a way to live out our faith and commitment to being a Reconciling Ministry, we have developed a unique worship service called Kaleidoscope. This Thursday night gathering centers the LGBTQ+ community, is interactive and spirit-filled, and reminds everyone that they are a beloved creation. Learn more by clicking on this link.
