From the Pulpit & Loft

The first Sunday of Advent, Nov. 30, marks the beginning of the liturgical (worship) year.  It also marks the beginning of Grosse Pointe Memorial Church’s sesquicentennial (150th) year.  In order to mark both transitions, we chose an Advent theme rooted in this particular season and corresponding to our anniversary.  “Tell of Peace” comes from the Advent hymn “Comfort, Comfort You My People” that was translated and set to music in 1863, close to our founding year.  It is the prayer of the Worship Council and staff that the various contributions to “Tell of Peace” will assist our members and friends in knowing God’s peace in Advent.  Worship through the season will be the starting place for telling of peace.  We will begin each service with 5 minutes of contemplation and reflection, accompanied by music.  We will also conclude each service with a charge to tell of peace and make peace in our own lives.  In so doing we remind ourselves of Christ’s ministry, participate in his love right now, and show forth the promise of his return.

5 p.m. Services: Our 5 p.m. services, in Barbour Chapel, will also embody the call to “Tell of Peace” and to be at peace.  They will also begin with the 5 minutes of reflection and include other times of silence in worship.  Our setting also allows for the creation of candlelight worship and an even more contemplative experience.  Each service will also include anointing with oil, a sign of our need for God’s peace and a reminder that Christ grants this gift to us.

“Countless Gifts of Love,” our 2015 annual stewardship season, began last month.  The Stewardship Council is hosting a series of desserts (1 hour max) in order to share information with members and take questions.  If you cannot make your designated gathering, you can come to any one that is on the calendar.  You will also receive a pledge card in the mail or you can pledge online by clicking here.  Remember, 60% of our income comes from member pledges.  We cannot do our ministry without you!


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.
