From the Pulpit & Loft

We have an associate pastor nominee.  Click here to learn more about Sarah Godbehere and the events leading up to September 14, the day she preaches at GPMC and we hold the congregational meeting to vote on the recommendation of our APNC to call Sarah as our next associate pastor with youth.

Summer Worship is in its Final Weeks

The first (8:30 a.m.) and third services (5:00 p.m.) of the day are outside on Trinity Terrace, next to Lake St. Clair.  These services are informal and only 45 minutes in length.  Many members ride bikes, walk, run- even swim!  Our middle service, at 10:30 a.m., includes our choir, an extra reading from the Bible and a few other more traditional elements of worship.  Our afternoon service always includes communion, with gluten-free bread and grape juice.  Whatever time you can make it, join us for worship!

Our 2014 Parish Life Fall Kick–Off Brunch is Sunday, September 14, at 11:30 a.m.  Click here to find out more.

The Session has called a congregational meeting for Sunday, September 7, on Trinity Terrace, immediately following the one service of worship at 10:30, in order to fill two vacancies on the Session. The nominees from the Nominating Committee are Ruth Azar and Connie Dunlap. Nominations from the congregtaion should be sent to Tom Coyle, chair of the Nominating Committee.

The Session has called a congregational meeting for Sunday, September 14, at 11:30 in the Sanctuary, immediately following the one morning service of worship at 10:30 a.m. This meeting is to receive and act upon the report and recommendation of the Associate Pastor Nominating Committee.  This meeting and report will include the presentation of a candidate
and voting on terms of call. 

Our Sunday morning Christian Education program is back in full swing on Sunday, September 21. Parents should bring their children to their classrooms (maps and room lists are in the stairwells and on the Third Floor). There will be some paperwork to fill out, which will also be available on the Third Floor. Education for adults will be in Barbour Chapel.  It all starts at 10:10 a.m., after our first morning service of worship. We are excited to start up again and we know you are, too! 


Children are always welcome in worship at GPMC.  Free childcare for infants and toddlers is available every Sunday morning during worship. Growing with God, a special program for children ages 3 through 2nd grade, is offered on Sundays at the earliest  service.  Growing with God does involve some gardening- please dress children appropriately.
