What do you offer for children on Sunday morning?
Children are a special part of our congregation and we value them as full participants in the life of our church. Sunday School classes for children (kindergarten through the 12th grade) begin at 10:00 a.m. and we offer a nursery.
Who goes to your church?
Our congregation truly spans the ages, from newborns to folks in their 80s. You’ll find just about every type of person here – married, single, divorced, widowed – professionals, workers, retired – life-long Michigan residents and those who have just recently moved here. But even more important than the kind of people who go here is the kind of people who are welcome here – everyone!
Do you have to dress up to attend your worship service?
No! Dressing up is not a requirement to worship with us. Feel free to come as you are, whether it be wearing a pair of slacks or some pajamas. We believe the most important part about Sunday morning is showing up, ready to worship God.
What kind of things do you do in your worship service?
We study and praise God’s word.
