Faithful and Inclusive: The Bible, Sexuality and The United Methodist Church
is a six-week video series that examines the Bible (Scripture) and the texts touching on the subject of homosexuality from a United Methodist understanding. It honors Scriptural authority as reflected in tradition, reason and experience, known commonly within Methodist circles as the Wesleyan “quadrilateral.”
The Video Series is led by Rev. Rob Fuquay, senior pastor of St. Luke’s United Methodist Church of Indianapolis, one of America’s largest and diverse United Methodist congregations. He believes and explores how United Methodists can be completely faithful to the authority of Scripture and fully inclusive of the LGBTQ+ community in the life of the church. The series is produced and distributed by Bishop Richard and Julia Wilke, who produced the DISCIPLE BIBLE series so well loved by United Methodists for decades.
Each Session will explore a variety of topics: How United Methodist Interpret Scripture, Old Testament Passages, Influence of Culture on How We Read the Bible, New Testament Passages, The Jesus Ethic: What Did Christ Say? Each session also features the faith journeys of the LGBTQ+ members at St. Luke UMC so you can hear their voices and stories.
Sessions are held through Zoom on Wednesdays, April 22 - May 27
Morning Sessions 10:30 a.m. - noon Evening Sessions 7:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.
We hope that you will join us for these important discussions.

3rd Thursdays Monthly, 6:30-7:30 p.m.
MUM is hosting a monthly coffee and discussion "Memory Cafe" held by Arden Courts sponsored by Adult Ministries. Jeanni Watson is the facilitator. Memory Cafés are designed to provide support for people with dementia and their caregivers in an informal setting. Originally started in England, this informal setting provides the caregiver a forum for discussion, reducing the isolation often felt by people with dementia, their caregivers and families. Discussions can range from practical tips for coping with dementia, avoiding caregiver burnout or information about community resources. There is no cost or obligation, and many attendees develop friendships that result in support even outside the Memory Cafe setting. Refreshments will be provided. Additional questions? Please call: 412-380-1300.
2nd Wednesday of each month at 7 p.m.
Silence & Singing, Shadow & Candlelight, Prayer & Reflection
Taizé worship is an ecumenical sung and silent prayer service designed to achieve a contemplative space through songs, Scripture, prayer, silence and candlelight. The sanctuary is beautifully designed just for Taizé and features soft lighting, flowing fabric and many candles. The music, which is contemplative in nature, emphasizes simple one or two line phrases usually from the Psalms, other passages of Scripture or liturgy. Short chants are repeated over and over again to give the service a contemplative atmosphere. The service includes a time of prayers. Taizé provides a time at the end of the day to relax from the stress of the day’s activities. It offers a time for worship and reflection, a time for calming the body and the mind. In the silence God’s word can reach the hidden corners of our hearts, and the light of Christ can reach, heal, and transform us. Join us as we experience this beautiful service!
