  • A thank you from starr commonwealth

    Dear MUMC Members,
     
    As you know, the Starr Commonwealth campus is fully alive with children’s voices and lots of playful activity. Once again, we are blessed to be providing a refuge for children, a place of hope and healing. Today, we take stock at what has been accomplished in regards to caring for these beautiful young people in such a short period of time, and we recognize that it was only possible because of you!
     
    Whether you provided clothing, shoes, toys, basket balls, soccer balls, duffel bags or a cash donation, we say thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Thank you for recognizing the dignity and value of these youth. Thank you for providing important items for them, when the need was great and time was of the essence. We are filled with love and gratitude for all you did to bring about the smiles, thank yous and “happy dances” that we are seeing today.
     
    Many Blessings,
     
    Lynn E. Komasara
    Major Gift Officer
    Starr Commonwealth

    Rev. Erin Fitzgerald

    We are happy to announce to you the appointment of Rev. Erin Fitzgerald, our new pastor effective July 1, 2021. For more information, and to read her letter CLICK HERE.


    Pastor Erin is half of a clergy couple and her spouse Pastor Joel will be joining Albion First UMC in July as well. The couple have been married 11 years and have 2 beautiful boys (Michael - 5 years old and Samuel - 10 months old). Pastor Erin and her family will be living in the parsonage for Albion First UMC in Albion. When the SPRC meeting met with Pastor Erin she was eager to get to know each and every person at MUMC and is looking forward to becoming part of our family. Pastor Erin has attached a personal letter to introduce herself and
    her journey to ministry.

    We will be planning a warm welcome for Pastor Erin and her family after her arrival in July, when we will begin our shared ministry under her leadership. In the meantime, of course, we will also be celebrating the ministry of Pastor Melany, to thank her for her years of faithful service as we pray God’s blessing upon her future.
