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 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.
