Wyandot church sets summer worship hours


UPPER SANDUSKY – The Wyandot Indian Mission has announced its 2009 summer schedule.
The historic church is open during June, July and August with worship services held at 8 a.m. each
The mission was founded in 1816 by John Stewart. Three years later it became the first officially
recognized mission of the Methodist Episcopal Church in America.
The stone Mission Church was built in 1824, and was restored in 1889 and designated a national historic
shrine by the General Conference of the Methodist Church in 1960. An Ohio historical marker has been
placed at the church.
The Mission Church is open from 1 to 4 p.m. each Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Tours may be arranged by
calling Jean Moon at (419) 294-2510; or John Stewart UM at (419) 294-2867
The church is located on East Church Street, one block east of Ohio 53 in Upper Sandusky.
One of the highlights each year is when Eagle Bear Burling leads the worship. The Ohio State
representative of the Wyando tribe is a certified lay speaker in the United Methodist Church. He is
scheduled for the July 5 service.
Other area pastors of various denominations are also scheduled.
One special guest pastor is set for Aug. 16, when Rev. Stanley Walters, pastor in religious studies at
Tyndale University College, Toronto, Canada is scheduled to lead the service.
