As you know, the United Methodist Church is a “connectional” church – and the Mission of the Year is an opportunity to be the heart and hands of Christ to the brothers and sisters of our district. Over the years the Mission of the Year offering has been an invaluable help to many district churches and entities. Its importance is immeasurable. Marquette Hope has been selected as the 2023 Mission of the Year. Funds are being raised for mechanical reworking of the elevator at the First Campus. The elevator is the oldest working elevator in the Upper Peninsula, and is important because the sanctuary is only accessible by use of stairs or the elevator. The project cost is estimated at $140,000.
