In response to the decisions of the 2019 General Conference of the UMC the Administrative Council of Indianola First UMC adopted the following statement –
“First UMC Indianola Iowa is an inclusive church for ALL people in our community, liberals, conservatives, LGBTQ+, straight, young, persons of every race and ethnicity, old, rich, poor, whomever.
First UMC loves and cares for EVERYONE regardless of what the UMC does or does not decide….now and in the future.”
We will be sharing our understanding of our nature as an inclusive congregation of God’s people because we believe that sharing God’s love with everyone all the time in every way possible is at the heart of the gospel.
God loves all, and all means all!
Tim Bonney, Lead Pastor
