More than 180 years ago, a group of Christians came to Michigan to build and equip the church. This work continues to this day in new and exciting ways. Hopefully spring is on the way and this will be our 7th year to promote and collect the Region Offering to continue the work that was started so many years ago and is still going on within our Region today. The Region promotes this special offering in May, but your church is welcome to collect this offering at any time.
