McCORDSVILLE, Ind. (e-HUM) – United Methodist Central District-related Metro Ministries honored Georganna Irish of Christ United Methodist Church in Indianapolis as its urban ministries’ Missioner of the Year during the organization’s annual meeting on Sunday, Nov. 7, at the McCordsville United Methodist Church.

She was honored for her volunteer service at Brightwood Community Center, Fletcher Place Community Center, as an active member of the Metro Ministries board and for engaging the cluster of churches related to Christ UMC in Metro Ministries activities.

More than 100 supporters saw and heard a video report of the organization’s outreach to economically hard hit communities in Marion and surrounding counties. Many of these ministries focused on outreach to school-aged children during summer months.
