Our Church is more than just a building...
... it is a place where we can communicate with God.
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.
7:30pm on Monday, November 23, you are invited to our Interfaith Thanksgiving Service.
Lots of music and many ways to experience healing and God's love for all persons and traditions. Please join us for this wonderful Thanksgiving Service.
In honor of our veterans, November’s outreach project is supporting The Desert Angel, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization based in Auburn Hills, Michigan. Desert Angels was formed in October 2001 by Louise Downs Blain. According to Louise, “The Troops gave me the name ‘Desert Angel’ because out of the desert comes a box from someone they don't even know - it much be an angel - it must be ‘The Desert Angel.’”
Desert Angels is a faith ministry, meaning it is a strictly volunteer organization, funded totally by donations. There is no outside funding and an all-volunteer staff.
Desert Angels collects, packs, and mails needed items to our Troops serving overseas. These boxes, dubbed “Miracle Boxes,” are care packages that contain a variety of needed items---including socks, pocket foods, and letters from home---as well as words of encouragement, hope and love. Also in each Miracle Box is added a "Prayer Cloth" or "Pocket Flag" reminding our Troops we are praying for them. They also add extra items to share and pass out to the native people of the countries where our Troops are stationed (in), and throw in some "fun stuff" or school supplies to give to the children. In other wordsDesert Angels shows our Troops they are not forgotten.
As of Oct. 2007, the boxes have been named "Miracle Boxes" in honor of Ortonville, Michigan's fallen hero, PFC Joseph A. Miracle, US Army Airborne of the 173rd. Joseph was in Afghanistan only 35 days when he gave his life defending his unit.
In addition to donations needed to purchase supplies for each box, there is also the postage cost. Each box costs $15 to mail. In August 2015 Desert Angels packed and shipped close to 600 Miracle Boxes!
In November we celebrate Veterans Day and Thanksgiving...it is a great time for everyone to be THANKFUL for FREEDOM! A donation of only $15 will cover the cost of postage for one Miracle Box. Of course any and all donations are welcome. Please use the yellow or blue envelopes and mark it for Desert Angels.
