Baptism: If you are interested in learning more about baptism, please contact the office at (231) 796-2600 or email  It is required that you meet with one of the pastors/elders and discuss what baptism means before you will be considered as a candidate.

Congregational Assessment Tool:  Today is the final day for submitting your input to our Congregational Assessment Tool to help the Elders with the Senior Pastor transition planning process.  We are using an online church health assessment called the Congregational Assessment Tool and the link will remain active until midnight tonight!  Your responses will help us to accurately understand our church culture and will provide a foundation for our Senior Pastor transition plan.  If you do not utilize email, paper copies are available in the foyer and may be completed and returned before you leave church today.  Your input is critical to the process.
