Welcome to the Grosse Pointe Congregational Church!

Our community of faith is an exciting, growing, family oriented church. Our mission is to RISE: Reach out, Inspire, Serve, and Embrace Diversity.

GPCC is a self governing Christian congregation affiliated with the United Church of Christ. We hold a wide variety of theological, social, and political opinions, but most importantly we follow Jesus Christ our Lord and his commandment to love each other. It is the love of neighbor that transcends our differences and binds us together as a Christian Community. If you are looking for a joyful and spiritually uplifting community that embraces the love of Jesus Christ and God's creations, come and join us. We will RISE to the occasion.

The covenant by which this Church exists as a distinct body and which every member accepts is as follows:  “We are banded together as a Christian Church to worship God, to proclaim the gospel of Christ, to develop in people a consciousness of their relations and duties to God and each other, and to inspire them with love for truth, passion for righteousness and enthusiasm for service.  This community of faith is an open and affirming congregation which seeks to welcome all persons, including those of all races, ethnicities, ages, sexual orientations, gender identities and expressions, family structures, faith backgrounds, abilities and economic circumstances.  To this end, we pledge our loyalty to Christ and covenant with each other to strive to express His spirit in our individual and corporate lives; to live together as Christians and to submit ourselves to the government of this Church, working, giving, praying for its increase, its purity, its peace and seeking in every way to make it a power for the building up of the Kingdom of God.”  Our collective vision is RISE:  Reach out, Inspire others, Serve all, and Embrace diversity. 

Traditional Sunday morning service is at 10:00am and the Children's Message is in the beginning of the service. Nursery is provided for infants and Sunday School is available for grades Pre-K through 7th grade from 10:15-11:00 am. There are also confirmed youth discussions available as an alternative to the service.


Our faith community shares in:

   
  • Chancel Choir and Bell Choir with a varied repertoire of traditional hymns, Gospel music, and contemporary hymns.
   
  • Youth Group activities for Middle and High Schoolers, including mission work and hosting of the Grosse Pointe 'Battle of the Bands.' There are confirmation classes for 7th and 8th graders which begins in September every other year. (eg. 2018, 2020, 2022, etc.)
   
  • A Women's Fellowship that utilizes annual Rummage Sale proceeds to support various outreach and church projects.
   
  • 'Among Friends' is a popular church group that has gatherings and outings for members throughout the year.
   
  • 'Knit Wits' is a knitting circle for knitters of all ages. Their 'Share the Love, Share the Warmth' proceeds benefit a local needy center.

 

  • Art Ministry.  We have Tuesday adult art makers and in the Fall and Spring we offer a middle school and high school art class on Saturdays.  We also have a art gallery in the Lounge with shows every 1-2 months.  Please note our changing schedule by visiting the church calendar or our Facebook Art Ministry Page.
