Grosse Pointe Memorial Church uses the Reformed principles of worship for organizing its worship life. Basic to these principles is that worship stands at the heart of our communal life and that it is the most important thing we do together as a community of faith.
Atmosphere: Our worship services are family friendly, inter-generational gatherings where we have children’s sermons, worship kits, and children’s bulletins to help our youngest worshipers. Children 2nd grade and younger are invited to a special program entitled “Young Children and Worship” after the children’s sermon. There is no dress code for worship at GPMC; come as you are and know that we give thanks for your presence in worship.
Schedule of Services: From the third Sunday in September until the Sunday before Memorial Day weekend, worship services at Grosse Pointe Memorial Church are usually at 9:00 am and 11:00 am in the morning and at 5:00 pm in the afternoon. Christian Education for all ages is at 10:10. From the Sunday after Memorial Day to the first Sunday in September, our worship schedule switches to an outdoor, lakeside service on Trinity Terrace at 8:30 am, an indoor service at 10:30 am, and then back to Trinity Terrace for 5 pm.
There are exceptions to this schedule. There will be only one service at 10:30am. on May 24, November 29, and December 27, 2020.
Our 5:00 pm services: In recognition that Sunday mornings can be a difficult time for some members and friends to worship, GPMC has a 5:00 p.m. service of worship most Sunday afternoons. These services are 45 minutes long, informal in nature, and include more informal music than in the morning as well as the use of projected images and liturgy. They also include a children’s sermon, free childcare, and the same preaching text and sermon as the morning services.
Children’s message at early service. Childcare at morning services. 5:00pm is 45 minutes, informal with gluten-free & non-alcoholic Communion.
