Your Christmas Offering impacts Disciples ministries in Michigan. Luke 2:25-32 -- through the Holy Spirit we too can see the light of revelation ... we can BELIEVE AGAIN ... Anticipate the miracle.
 

Let me count the ways ...

... a Christmas Offering moment

"The ways that the Michigan Region has supported me are too many to count. I went to Chi Rho Camp and CYF Conference back in the 1960s. Those experiences shaped my understanding of my faith and were part of the prompting I received to pursue ministry. The Region supported me during the time I was at the Divinity School and helped me with my first church in Dowagiac.  
 
Recently, here at the United Church of Wayland, our Regional Minister assisted us in the calling of a new permanent pastor. Eugene James is a blessing to all our congregations.
 
I am happy to join you and the others in support of the
Christmas Offering.

Also, did you know to commemorate our church's 150th anniversary, we are replacing the cross in the courtyard.  The new cross will be in bronze in a very rustic  and organic design.  Mic Carlson is a multi-talented local artis who specializes in religious art and has a passion as a bronze sculptor. He has enthusiastically agreed to take on this project.  The cross will celebrate our last 150 years and stand with us for the next 150 and beyond.  Please consider a special contribution to this project.
