UMCOR’s work reaches people in more than 80 countries, including the United States.  We provide humanitarian relief when war, conflict, or natural disaster disrupt life to such an extent that communities are unable to recover on their own.




We want to create a church that unchurched people love to attend. Unfortunately, many unchurched people are more familiar with what the church is against, rather than what the church is for.


We simply want FUMC/The Place Church to be known for what we are. We are for Henry County families, couples, singles, students, and children. We are for New Castle, Spiceland, Mt. Summit and all of the great towns in our county. We are for Henry.


The reason we are for the people in our county is because God is for them. The most famous verse in the Bible clearly states this: "For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but will have eternal life."

We simply want to share the news with the people in our county that God is for them, and we are too. Our desire is to create a church where you will want to invite your friends, family, and neighbors to experience this life-changing truth.
