What's the latest on our worship services & ministry events?
In light of guidance from governmental and health officials, until further notice, we will continue to have Sunday worship services online on Sundays at 9:30 a.m. at yourchurch.com/live.
We are also postponing or canceling all other College Park Church meetings and events until further notice. We are working with our staff and lay ministry leaders to determine the best future plans as we monitor official guidance.
Please visit yourchurch.com/updates for the latest updates related to ministry plans affected by COVID-19.
What about Easter and Good Friday?
We are still planning to have an Easter service online at 9:30 a.m. on Easter Sunday (April 12). We encourage you to invite your neighbors, friends, and family to join the online service that day by visiting yourchurch.com/live or by watching on our Facebook live stream.
We are not planning to do a Good Friday online worship service but are hoping to provide a digital resource to help prepare your heart ahead of the Easter weekend.
How can I stay connected?
Our building might be closed, but ministry is still very much happening! To shepherd our people during this unique season, we are posting original content to CPC Resources at 10 a.m. every weekday and we are going live on Facebook at 2 p.m. every weekday. You don’t have to have a Facebook account to check out these updates!
Additionally, we are developing additional digital ministry opportunities that will help you connect with the Lord, connect with each other, and receive pastoral care during this time.
What is our plan for the budget vote and March 22 Congregational Meeting?
We will postpone the March 22 Congregational Meeting to (tentatively) Sunday, May 17, provided current restrictions on large gatherings have changed.
In that meeting, we are planning to vote on the fiscal year 2020/21 Budget. Due to the extenuating circumstances, the elders have (1) approved significant cost-reduction measures effective immediately to freeze non-essential spending, and (2) approved implementing the elder-approved FY 2020/21 budget starting April 1, 2020 as the temporary functional operating budget for College Park Church (North Indy), College Park Church Greenwood, and One Fellowship Church. The proposed budget already represented a 3 percent overall budget reduction, but the temporary cost-reduction measures implemented go far beyond that.
Any updates regarding the meeting will be communicated on yourchurch.com/updates.
How is the church doing financially?
College Park Church has very little debt and a long history of careful financial decision making by elders and staff. The staff and elders will continue to make wise decisions so we can best serve our community and navigate the current economic environment, trusting the Lord to provide for all that we need.
To provide additional financial margin for pressing church family and community needs, and to be prudent given the unknowns our community currently faces, we are choosing to freeze all spending that is non-essential.
We are grateful to the College Park family who continues to generously support the mission of our church. Our building may be closed, but ministry is still going on. Your faithful giving helps support our ongoing efforts to ignite a passion to follow Jesus.
How can I give?
You can still mail tithing checks or cash to the church office (2606 W. 96th Street, Indianapolis, IN 46268). We encourage you to give online if you are able to help our staff working remotely at home.
What does Sunday morning look like?
Join us online for service at 9:30 a.m. on Sundays. Until further notice, we will plan to live stream church services on Sundays. You can watch the service at yourchurch.com/live or—if you’d like to engage with others as you worship—join our watch party on Facebook!
The service available on-demand after 9:30 a.m. that same day on yourchurch.com/sermons.
So grab your Bible, your notes (including digital kids notes), and a pen and get ready to worship!
Are Small Groups and other groups meeting?
Small Groups (and all other ministry groups, like Bible Studies and counseling groups) are meeting only by phone or video calls until further notice. We highly encourage groups to still meet virtually on a regular basis during this season of social distancing.
Is the church building open?
No, the church building is not open at this time since all in-person ministry events and meetings until further notice.
The College Park staff is working remotely until further notice. To reach a staff member, please call our front desk and leave a voicemail. Our staff will get back to you as quickly as possible, usually within two business hours, Monday through Friday.
