Letter from Doug Talley, Executive State Pastor of Indiana Ministries:
During any crisis, we have a firm foundation. Our faith is in God and God’s provision. We are not to live in fear but through prayer we can find God’s peace. We can help reduce anxiety through prayerful, informed counsel, and by having a plan of action that will be in everyone’s best interest.
I hope this information is helpful to you as you continue to serve your congregation and your community. We are praying for you and for your communities. The present situation provides an opportunity to serve others and let persons know God’s people care for them and are eager to serve in any way possible.
If we can be of assistance, please call Indiana Ministries at (317) 773-6477 or email one of us.
May God guide you as you minister to others.

Online Giving Options:
If not already set up, there are many options available for online giving. If you use a Church Management System (Planning Center Online, Elexio, Servant Keeper, etc.), you probably have online and/or text to give options available through that system that might be the best way to get started with electronic giving. Here are some other options.
