    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.
