Each year the Marquette District Board of Missions and Church Extension chooses a
Mission of the Year (MOY) at its annual meeting in November. This is a long-standing
tradition going back to at least 1969. Over the years a wide variety of organizations
have received funds as a Mission of the Year. Many have been churches who used the
funds for building maintenance. A few have been other organizations such as prison
ministry, campus ministry, and community outreach. Ironwood Wesley UMC was selected
as 2018 Mission of the Year.
If your church would like to apply as 2019 Mission of the Year, you must fill out
an application. Contact the district office for an application, 906-228-4644, or
download one here. Applications are due by September 1 and should be mailed to Jean
Getzen, S613 E Ridge Ct., Stephenson, MI 49887-4248.
Has your church taken an offering for this year’s Mission of the year, Ironwood Wesley?
Has your church been a recipient of a Mission of the Year? If so, then you know what
a welcome gift this ministry provides. All churches have received brochures detailing
the need for structural repairs to this historic building. If the brochures have
gone missing, contact the district office, 906-228-4644.
