Church Recognitions

In April of 2017 Certificates recognizing the longevity of United Methodist Churches in the Michigan Area were presented.  Here is the list of the churches recognized for 175 years or more in 2017.  The date is the year the church began to meet either as a class, society or a church.   The number is the number of years in 2017.  If your church should have been on this list, you may apply to get the certificate this year.  In 2018 we are recognizing churches that have been in existence for 150 years or more.  Those already on this list will not be recognized again until they reach 200 years or more.  The application can be found on the home page of this website at the end of the “Roots and Branches” article.
