2013 Worship With Us u 5 Ironwood Assembly of God 2100 E. Cloverland Drive Ironwood, MI 49938 906-932-1575 Pastor: Rev. Mark Ortman Worship Services Sunday Morning Worship: 10:00 a.m. Wednesday, Mid-Week Service: 6:30 p.m. The mission statement of Ironwood Assembly of God is to “reach, love and grow people for the Kingdom of God” and has been its focus since the Church began in early 1930. The mission statement of the Church continues to be its focus and is being fulfilled through missions, fellowship and the preaching of the Word of God. Ironwood Assembly began in a tent on the corner of Ayer and Lake where revival services went on for 2 years with an itinerant evangelist. After meeting in that tent for 2 years, the new, fledging Church moved to South Suffolk Street, and rented a modest upstairs hall. With growth came a need for more space, and the congregation moved to a downstairs hall on Suffolk Street. In 1936, the Church officially incorporated under the laws of the State of Michigan, and affiliated with the Wisconsin Northern Michigan District of the Assemblies of God. At that time, the congregation built a new sanctuary with the pastor’s residence attached on the corner of Greenbush and Harding. Sensing the need for a bigger building due to growth, in the fall of 1951, the Church purchased the Swedish Methodist Church on the corner of McLeod Avenue and Curry Street and the building on Greenbush and Harding was sold. There were a number of pastors that served the congregation, but in January 2000, Rev. Mark Ortman was voted in as pastor and began serving as pastor in March 2000. Rev. Ortman and his wife, Ruth, have served the Church since that time. The Church moved to its present location in 1998 and 13 years later, in 2010, the debt was retired. The congregation gives all the credit to God for His faithfulness in helping them eliminate that debt. Early in 2013, the Church sponsored 2 young adults for a missions trip to Uganda, Africa. Several people from the Church have answered to call to full time ministry and are serving the Lord in various places around the world. Ironwood Assembly is a traditional Pentecostal Church that is sensitive to the Holy Spirit, exalts Jesus Christ, and desires to honor God in all they do.
