Indiana Conference of the United Methodist Church 

Laity Day with the Bishop 2017 

Laity Day with the Bishop is a day for all lay persons in the church to further develop in their leadership, worship and grow in their faith, and connect to other laity from around Indiana.

This year we will be focused on the theme "Together We Are More".  We will hear from Bishop Trimble a powerful reminder of our connection to one another and to our faith.  We will recognize the many ways laity throughout the conference are serving Christ and making a difference in their neighborhoods, our state, the country and around the world.  We will celebrate that "Together We Are More" and embrace the role lay persons have to make a difference for Christ.

Workshops featuring the 4 Focuses of the United Methodist Church will be a highlight of the day including:  Engaging in Ministry with the Poor, Improving Global Health, Developing Principled Christian Leaders, and Creating New and Renewed Congregations.
