Speedway UMC Staff and Leadership
G. Thomas Jones
Child Care Director
Over the years, Speedway United Methodist Church has responded to God’s call in many ways. When a need for quality child care for working parents was identified in 1997, Speedway United Methodist Child Care Ministry was formed. This ministry has successfully adapted to the needs of an ever-changing community, earning recognition as a “Pathways to Quality” site with the help of the United Way and receiving a certificate from the State of Indiana and the Family and Social Services Administration for achievement. Utilizing the world-renowned Christian based curriculum, Abeka, the child care ministry remains strong today.
Recently, when Casa de Dios, a United Methodist Spanish speaking congregation needed a place to meet, Speedway UMC welcomed them with open arms. In addition to sharing the church, the two congregations occasionally worship as one and conduct special events, like Vacation Bible School, together.
Acts like these showcase a variety of ways Speedway UMC utilizes its ministries to compassionately help our neighbors and reach our community. God continues to challenge and empower the SUMC congregation to be faithful followers of Jesus Christ. In today’s fast-paced world with many distractions, people may find acceptance and hope here at Speedway United Methodist Church.
