A Pilgrimage 
to Taiz�

May 21 - June 2, 2015
(includes Chartres and Paris)

This trip is primarily created for those aged 17-29, though everyone is welcome. As you may know, the Taiz� community in France has become a gathering place for young adults from all over the world. In this setting, young Christians have an opportunity to meet the world Church, to develop life-long spiritual practices, and to reflect on their call to follow Christ. If you or someone you know has questions about the trip or would like to hear from a past participant, don't hesitate to email bridget.holmstrom@abc-usa.org.

This is how "they do things." view full article

Monthly Church Highlight

First United Bloomington (IN) is finding it meaningfully troublesome to be filled so full of ministry opportunities in our own building.  Historically the church sanctuary has been filled with music variety.  With the nearby Indiana University and our outstanding acoustics and pipe organ, First United has been home to recitals from oboes to opera singers.  view full article
