From the Pulpit & Loft

Our summer worship schedule continues through September 6. Our outdoor, lakeside service is at 8:30 a.m. on Trinity Terrace.    This is a 45 service of worship for which many of our members dress more casually. Some members walk, bike, run and kayak to worship! During the service, our children tend to a garden that produces fruit and vegetables for local soup kitchens.  Our 10:30 a.m. service in the Sanctuary retains the formality and fullness of our services throughout the year. Our 5:00 p.m. service is very similar to 8:45 but also includes weekly communion.  These service times run through Labor Day weekend, September 6.

This Sunday our high school youth will lead worship.  Back in June, 35 youth and adults from GPMC travelled to Chavies, KY to work with the Appalachian Service Project.  Our participating high school students will lead worship at all three services, as well as make a presentation between services at 9:30 a.m. under the apple tree at Trinity Terrace.  Thank you for everyone who supports our youth ministries and their trips.


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.

Visiting Palestinian Students: July 5, 2015

Here’s a transcript of the first speaker:

We traveled a long distance to be with you here. We are here to start building bridges of peace and friendship with you American friends and to strengthen bridges that were built before with the help and support of Pilgrims of Ibillin.

In 1995, Grosse Pointe Memorial Church sponsored the creation of a new church group called Pilgrims of Ibillin whose staff and leaders were of Grosse Pointe. Therefore, we owe you a lot since it’s with your support that we have better education and better life. 

I entered Mar Elias High School five years ago, my dad said to me that I will study in the best school ever, and I did. I asked him, “Why you think its the best high school?” By the way my dad did not continued his Elementary school. He answered me that my older uncle studied at Mar Elias high school and graduated at 1982, my dad was still at fifth grade, he quit Elementary school to help my older uncle to raise money and to continue studying at the university. My uncle graduated from the Technion university at Haifa, he’s now a civil engineer, he own his private constractions company, my father and my older uncle are partners. 

To study in a private Christian school is not easy for another unchristian students. Before I started studying at Mar Elias High School I thought that I will have a lot of problems because I’m a Muslim, but I was wrong. I met a lot of students with different religions and backgrounds. I was interesting about the knowing a new thing about the Christian Religion. All the students live in harmony at Mar Elias High School, the reasons that we learned at the school that we all humans beings before we are Christians, Muslims, Jews and Druze. 

I heard Father Elias saying, “We are not condemned to live together, we are rather privileged to live together – to accept each other and to become a sign of hope for our local people, for the Middle East and for all those thousands who visit the Holy Places.”

Studying at Mar Elias High School gives me a lot of possibilities to build my future, I studied Biology and Ecology at High School, now I study Plants Science (Botany) and Biotechnology at the Hebrew University at Jerusalem. It would not happen if I studied at another high school. 

Thank you for listening.
