Thank you to all the churches that paid their 2021 District Ministry Shares! Through your support, we fulfilled our commitment to the Wesley Woods Camp and Retreat Center and the Wesley Foundation of Kalamazoo. Mission & Ministry grants and Fresh Expressions grants were awarded to ten churches for a variety of purposes, such as: hygiene facilities for the homeless, prisoner re-entry kits, a/v upgrades, a fresh food initiative, young adult ministry, and a children and youth mental health program. Sixteen churches were also granted funds to assist in clergy support and a new seminary intern program. District Ministry Shares help to keep lay servant ministry classes free, provide resources for pastoral transitions, and offer support for new clergy candidates.
