From the Pulpit & Loft

The season of Lent, a period of self-reflection and preparation before Easter, began on February 18 with our Ash Wednesday worship services.  For more about Lent, click here.

Our Lenten theme this year is Made in the Image.  The theme is based on Genesis 1 and the creation of humanity in the image of God.  Throughout the season, we will be lifting up the role of the arts in worship and as expression and exploration of spirituality.  For more about our Lenten theme, click here for our GPMC devotional.

This Saturday night, 6:30 – 8:000 p.m., is Coffeehouse 2015, a fundraiser for our youth mission trip to Kentucky.  Our youth are selling baked goods and coffee and putting on a show.  We are still open to more acts and, just as importantly, people to enjoy the show and buy the baked goods. What’s on tap for the night? We have singers, dancers, joke-tellers and dramatists of all ages, including members of our youth group and adult choir.  Click here for a short video promo.

We are pleased to announce that there is one morning service of worship on Sunday, March 1, as the Presbytery of Detroit installs the Rev. Sarah Godbehere as our Associate Pastor with Youth and Their Families.  Adult education is at 9:30 a.m. that day, Sunday school for children and youth has been cancelled, and Young Children and Worship will be offered at the 10:30 a.m. service.

We are welcoming our newest class of new members on Sunday, March 8, at our 9 a.m. service of worship. 

Our next BIG sesquicentennial event is on March 7 and March 21 as we make 150,000 meals for Kids Against Hunger.  We need members and friends of all ages to sign up for one or more, two hour shift on each day:  10-12, 12-2, 2-4.  More information here.  Contact Sue Acton at the church office or call the reception desk to sign up.


Children are always welcome in worship at GPMC.  Free childcare for infants and toddlers is available every Sunday morning during worship and Sunday school. Young Children and Worship, a special program for children ages 3 through 2nd grade, is offered on Sundays at the earliest  service.  A children’s sermon is offered at both services.
