The United Media Resource is entering into a new location and partnership with Kumler United Methodist Church in Springfield, Illinois. As part of the transition, Kumler UMC will be housing the resource center and managing the lending library of resources. The UMRC will pause its lending and operations on June 1, 2022, and resume operations on August 1, 2022.

"Kumler United Methodist Church is excited about the opportunity to house and operate the United Methodist Resource Center at our Outreach Center (303 N. Grand Ave. East, Springfield), connecting churches with materials and resources," said the Rev. Don Goodenow, pastor at Kumler UMC in Springfield, Ill. "This is another way we can be in ministry and help others grow as disciples. We encourage anyone who wants to volunteer at the UMRC to contact us.”

Rev. Dr. Curtis Brown, Director of Connectional Ministries for the Illinois Great Rivers Conference said, “This is a great opportunity for us to partner with Kumler’s facility and volunteers to help keep this Resource Center operating and supporting the mission and ministries of its users.” More details about the transition, operations, and how to access the UMRC resources will be posted at igrc.org/UMRC.

If you have questions about this partnership, please contact Curtis Brown at cbrown@igrc.org. If you would like to volunteer or have questions about future UMRC operations, you can reach Kumler at 217-523-2269 and ask for Sharon Brown.
