Summerfield United Methodist church stays connected to its mission amid financial struggles

On this week's Urban Spelunking, we're talking about Summerfield United Methodist Church, a story about a Milwaukee church with a surprising amount of heart because of the congregation's commitment to its mission, even with the odds stacked against it.

But first things first, the architecture of the 1904 building, 728 E. Juneau Ave, is beautiful.

"It’s a stunner inside, with an eye-popping stained glass skylight dome, lovely windows, beautiful woodwork and more," writes OnMilwaukee's Bobby Tanzilo.

Listen to this week's episode to learn how the church is addressing food insecurity, even while it's own future is uncertain. Plus we talk about how the church was built and expanded, and how it has remained committed to Milwaukee's immigrant community.

Take a listen to the episode above, and be sure to visit OnMilwaukee for even more history and photos.
