Letter from the pastors of Kalamazoo First UMC after GC2019. CLICK HERE to read.

The United Methodist Church celebrates Human Relations Day to further the development of better human relations by involving congregations in community and youth outreach through Community Developers Programs, United Methodist Voluntary Services Programs, and Youth Offender Rehabilitation Programs. It is celebrated on the Sunday before the observance of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday (January 19, 2020). You can make a donation to this special offering online.
