As conditions and guidelines continue to change related to Covid, here’s what you can expect at Traders Point campuses. All staff and serving teams will continue to wear face coverings at our campuses, and we kindly recommend that guests wear them as well. (Note that mandates remain in place for Marion County, where our Downtown Campus is located.)
We will continue to keep physical distancing measures in place at all campuses.
For more on how we’re gathering in this season, visit tpcc.org/regathering. Check back here for updates as conditions change!
We're excited to announce that we have new Traders Point merch coming soon. These shirts remind us that we're called to make bold moves - to not shrink back but to step into this world and make a difference. They're a great conversation starter to invite someone to church too!
They'll be available for purchase starting Sunday, March 28, but you can see a preview now at shop.tpcc.org.
Starting March 21, we’re making some changes to our in-person gathering experience! Over the last couple months, we’ve seen more and more people coming to our campuses, and we want to make sure that everyone who wants to hear about Jesus has the opportunity to do that.
After a lot of consultation and prayer, we’re taking some steps in our main auditorium spaces to allow more people to join us. We’ll also continue to provide space at each campus with more distancing for those who prefer or need it. And coffee will be back too!
Learn more about all of our environments and gathering experiences here.
You’re not defined by what you’ve done. You’re defined by what Jesus did for you.

We’ve all had areas that have been hit hard this past year. During this series, we’re rallying around our kids, our marriages, our communities, and our church, and we’re crying out to the name that pulls us all together – Jesus. We believe that unified under the name of Jesus, the areas that were hit the hardest can become stronger than ever.
To find out where you can join us in person or online, visit tpcc.org/locations.
God created you to go make a difference in this world. There’s no better time to humbly roll up your sleeves, and reach out to people with the hope and love of Jesus.
Local mission trips will serve our local partners in the Indianapolis area. While you will spend the night in your own bed, everything else will be very similar to an actual mission trip, just right here in our own city. The days will be long and packed full of learning and serving, as well as spending time with God and learning how he wants us to minister outside the walls of Traders Point.
Learn about mission trip opportunities at tpcc.org/mission-trips.
Starting in January, our Downtown campus parking lots will be closed because of construction happening on I-65. Please plan to make alternate parking arrangements and maybe even arrive a little early. See a map of parking locations here!!Let’s be good neighbors during this time! Please be mindful of our neighbors and their personal parking spaces. We’ll post construction updates here or in our Downtown Campus FB group.Thanks for being flexible with us during I-65 construction!
On Sunday, January 10, we announced that we've purchased the Marsh Supermarket building in Plainfield, Indiana, as a permanent location for our West Campus. We’ll begin construction to prepare the building for an official launch in 2022. We’re so grateful for the doors God has opened and the opportunity to continue bringing hope and help to our city!
Traders Point is continuing to gather at our physical campuses for those who are willing and able to come. We’re staying vigilant to keep everyone safe through the proper precautions, and we’ll continue to monitor current data trends and consider guidance from health professionals regularly.
We believe it’s important to offer in-person gatherings because our mission is critical to a hurting world. We’re providing oxygen of hope every weekend for those who come, and we want to continue giving people the help and hope they’re looking for.
To see how we’ve designed our in-person gatherings to keep you safe, click here.
Thank you for jumping in to make a difference with us during Serve Week!
Because of you, we collected over 400 coats for kids, 1,600 food and household items, 100 appreciation gifts for child welfare workers, and served our neighbors all around Indianapolis and the world.

We’ve been praying, consulting with local officials, working with other churches and seeking as much guidance and counsel as we can, and today, we are excited to share our re-gathering plan with you. We are planning to regather at all campuses on Sunday, August 2! Our re-gathering will be an experience that’s been re-designed to help keep you and families safe, and it’s been created with three perspectives in mind: The Biblical Perspective The Historical Perspective The Emotional Perspective Check out our Lead Pastor Aaron Brockett’s video for more insight and encouragement on those perspectives, and for all the details about our regathering plan (continue checking this page as more updates and details will be released in the coming weeks).
We’d encourage you to note a few important details: Gatherings at our Northeast and Midtown campuses will be temporarily suspended. In order to help our church prepare for this critical next season of ministry--taking full advantage of the opportunity to increase our online offerings--we have realigned staff and financial resources. We want to be excellent stewards of all that God has put in front of us. This means putting both staff and finances in strategic places to help us more fully reach people online AND in person. Here’s what that means for three of our campuses:
If you were part of the Midtown campus, we’d love to invite you to join our Downtown campus. Many staff, teams and guests came from the Downtown campus, and we’re asking you to re-join that campus.
We have every intention of regathering the Midtown Campus as soon as we can. In fact, we are continuing to work on plans to have the Marsh Building in Broad Ripple eventually become our permanent Midtown Campus.
Kyle Riley, who was pastor for Midtown, will become campus pastor for Downtown. Ryan Bramlett, who was pastor for Downtown, will step into a full-time role as teaching pastor for Traders Point. If you’re part of Downtown or Midtown, reach out to Kyle and Ryan and celebrate and encourage them!
