Is Grosse Pointe Congregational the kind of church you can get involved in? We would love to have you visit and find out!
We are from all walks of life and from many parts of the journey. Our common faith brings us together to share and care for each other.
Please come to our Annual Christmas Family Workshop on December 6th, 7-9 PM. Now outside the church office are order blanks, a box for orders and checks payments, and the showcase filled with crafts to choose from! Deadline for orders is December 1st. Many of the crafts make great gifts! Teen Haven will provide food and refreshments for a fundraising project that evening. We are expecting some special guests, too!

Teens from Grosse Pointe Congregational Church recently returned from a mission trip to the other side of the State. There were 10 teens taking part of this life-changing experience. The City of Grand Rapids was their mission where they met up with groups from several neighboring states to bring about a positive change in the world around them. The organization called Week of Hope provides youth Mission trips that will teach "Christ-like empathy and compassion for others as they serve the needs of local communities." groupmissiontrips.com/week-of-hope
The Teens were sent out in random groups to various locations. One place was a local nursing home where they cleaned inside the building and did yard work outside, and visited residents who never received guests. The Baxter House was another worthy location that received helping hands. The couple who live there provide work and care to others in need before taking care of themselves. The teens who went there and painted, cleaned inside the home and did yard work to the tearful appreciation of the Baxter's. Another group went to a warehouse where they removed computer components that are usually sent to China where they simply burn the plastics to get the rare earth metals, burning plastic is toxic to the environment. Removing the components by hand may be time consuming, but it is not harmful to the environment. "We saved goats from cancer," one teen stated. A not-for-profit Special Needs Riding Facility also gladly accepted helping hands cleaning out horse stalls, bathing the horses, and long overdue filing was completed during the week.
Back in Grosse Pointe, the youth of Grosse Pointe Congregational Church continue to reach out philanthropically by collecting loose change every third Sunday in support of the Heifer Project http://www.heifer.org/ which helps families lift themselves out of poverty by providing livestock and education.
