A highlight, as always, will be our Worship Service when we all come together from across Michigan to praise God, hear a sermon and be one body breaking bread and partaking of the cup in unison from our homes. Our special guest preacher, Rev. Carol Devine, from Lexington Kentucky and lead minister of our denominational Green Ministries will inspire us with the Word. 

An abbreviated Business Session will receive reports previously submitted in the official Assembly docket and take action on the sale of the former Battle Creek church property and a piece of property at Crystal Conference Center.

We also will have some educational presentations focused on mission action, the environment, and stewardship. LaShawn Erby of Michigan Poor Peoples Campaign, Carol Devine of Green Chalice and India Bobadilla of Christian Church Foundation will be our presenters.

We look forward to seeing you ONLINE at 10:00 AM August 8.  Just think, you won’t even have to leave home and drive 1-3 hours to take part. Just find that comfortable spot with your computer to be part of the larger body of Christ for a few hours.
