WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT THE CHURCH YOUR ARE SERVING? The churches (Sturgis UMC and Big Creek UMC) care so deeply for other people. The churches are laid back, and welcome anyone into the church. They focus on other people and the communities needs first. It’s very amazing how well Sturgis works with her sister church Big Creek they both worship and work with each other extremely well!
