IKC Annual Gathering 2018
June 1-2, 2018
with Education Day May 31, 2018
Friedens UCC, Indianapolis

What ignites the church for you: Passionate faith? Mission? Prophetic Witness? Worship? Connect with laypeople and clergy from across the conference to share your passion for ministry and learn more about the fiery ministries in churches across the conference.

Be Ignited by:

• A concert with singer-songwriter and author Carrie Newcomer http://www.carrienewcomer.com
• Worship, workshops and keynote with Marcia McFee, Worship Design Studio http://worshipdesignstudio.com/
• Preaching by Rev. Leah Robberts-Mosser and Rev. Vince Amlin
• Church vitality and research Education Day with Rev. Dr. Kristina Lizardy-Hajbi
• Opportunities for conversation that will fuel your fire for mission and outreach

In this time of tremendous change and struggle for our churches, we need our covenantal relationships more than ever — to ignite our passion for serving, to gain practical tools for ministry and foster connections that remind us we are part of something much greater than ourselves.

Call for Visual Art Pieces

What ignites the church for you: Passionate faith? Mission? Prophetic Witness? Worship? Fellowship and Community? Reflection? Meditation?

Tell a visual story around our Annual Gathering 2018 theme — Igniting Church — by submitting your original art to be displayed prominently at Annual Gathering 2018 at Friedens United Church of Christ, Indianapolis. All 2D artists working in such media as printmaking, painting, drawing, mixed media, textiles, photography, fiber art, etc. are invited to fill our community space with images that explore questions inspired by our theme. You will need to deliver the piece along with an easel or other display by May 31, 2018 to Friedens UCC, Indianapolis and pick them up at the conclusion of Annual Meeting on June 2.

Apply by submitting your name, home church, title of the piece of art, media and dimensions of the piece by April 1, 2018 to Julie Hayden at Julie-hayden@sbcglobal.net. She can also answer any questions you might have.

Remember to Save the Dates: June 1 & 2, 2018 for Annual Gathering!
