JOIN US FOR OUR FIRST GATHERING AS THE
DISTILLED THEOLOGY COLLABORATIVE.

We are neighbors in conversation about faith and life.

We are members of Episcopal Churches in the Indy Metro area who see themselves as neighbors in faith together. We get out of our church buildings for conversations about faith and life, and discover what theologies we have buried inside of us. We engage with ideas and topics we care about. We come together to distill our thoughts while sharing food and drinks in public spaces together.

Thursday, September 26
In collaboration with Good Samaritan Episcopal Church.

Speaker Night!
Leah Gunning Francis presents Faith and Ferguson

Time: 6:30pm-8:30pm

Parking: Come early to get street parking! You’ll need at least 20 minutes to park and walk to the Athenaeum.
