“Put your outdoor work in order and get your fields ready;
after that, build your house.

                                                                                           Proverbs 24:27

In the same way, there is much to prepare before hosting a Summer Friendship Gathering.  An important part of this preparation is training the many volunteers who will participate in the lessons and discussions, and also support the events with meals, setup and worship.

For everyone’s convenience, Connection Ministries will put on four identical training sessions at various locations, days and times.


Monday April 8 – Trinity Lutheran Church
8540 E 16 Indianapolis IN 46219
6 – 8 p.m. Dinner Begins at 5:30 p.m.

Saturday April 27 – St. Andrews Lutheran Church
6118 Crawfordsville Rd Speedway IN 46224
9 – 11 a.m. Continental Breakfast begins at 8:30 a.m.

Monday June 3 – Cornerstone Lutheran Church
4850 E Main St Carmel, IN 46033
6 – 8 p.m. Dinner begins at 5:30 p.m.

Saturday June 8— Spirit of Joy Church
3535 Kessler Blvd E Dr Indianapolis, IN 46220
9 – 11 a.m. Continental Breakfast begins at 8:30 a.m.


Another way to prepare is to register for the Gathering where you plan to participate or volunteer.  The application will also update your registration for your Friendship Group for the upcoming year.  The groups providing for meals need to know how many will be attending and plan for special dietary needs.
