Celebrating Our Community’s History at Marq Park UMC

In February, we attended services and a Black History Month celebration at Marquette Park United Methodist Church, which has a long history of pursuing social justice.
Members of the congregation gave speeches on the importance of accurately recording history and the positive civil rights transitions they have witnessed in Gary-Miller over the past 5 decades.
 The Miller Spotlight Steering Committee couldn’t agree more about the importance of accurately depicting the best needs for our community through the revitalization efforts we are spearheading.
 If you have a religious / spiritual institution/ organization that would like to be involved in the Miller Spotlight process we are looking to poll folks on how to help our community progress. Please contact Jessie Renslow via All are welcome to join our Steering Committee!
