2020 Arts & Crafts Show is Canceled

Our annual Arts & Crafts Show is now a casualty of COVID-19 as we have made the decision to cancel this year's event. As much as we'd like to give artists a venue this Fall and welcome the community to enjoy their work, we desire more to keep everyone safe from COVID-19.


Service to Tecumseh & Beyond

Tecumseh Fresh Food Initiative -- every 3rd Saturday we partner with several other local organizations to distribute food to any in need. Food is in pre-packaged boxes. Drive up and we'll put it into your car for you.

Our next food distribution is Saturday 19 September at 12:00PM.
Distributions will also take place on the following dates (all Saturdays): 17 October, 21 November.
The December date is TBD.

More About Worship

Join in worship of God through praise and prayer, the hearing of God's Word from the Bible and preacher, and music. Material from the Bible and its interpretation always aim to answer the question, "So what?!?" -- our pastor strives to speak to the needs of the day.
When indoors our music is generally traditional--hymns, choir, organ. Outdoors and online, music is much more varied with song, a lot of instrumental solo work, and a bit of the exotic (the pastor plays Native American style flute, for example).


What We Believe - the core, important stuff

There is one God known in Three Persons: transcendent Father, fully human/fully divine Jesus the Christ, and Holy Spirit.

The world is broken and suffering happens. Humans are broken, selfish, neglectful, shortsighted, and too often willful wrongdoers, unable to get ourselves sorted without God's help.

God lived among us as Jesus the Christ who lived, loved, and taught, died, taking upon himself the evil and guilt we could not bear, and resurrected from death in victory over the powers of brokenness, evil, and death. Through Jesus we are offered saving relationship with God. To reject Jesus is to alienate ourselves from God.

Working through numerous writers over centuries, God gave us the Bible, God's self-revelation, which is authoritative for our faith and living

The church is the community Jesus established to continue his ministry and mission in the world.

God loves you and there's nothing you can do about it.


Our Pastor

. . . The Reverend Mark Alan Miller doesn't look like a pastor, loves to preach, and is passionate about helping people experience the love of God through Jesus Christ, especially during times of crisis.

He received his M-Div from Asbury Theological Seminary, where he specialized in Biblical theology and Christian ethics, after leaving a career as a software engineer and simulation analyst. A graduate of Adrian College, he majored in geology and math, then went on to use neither.

Mark was an atheist, and now is theologically orthodox, Christologically conservative (believes in Jesus resurrection, for example), has a strong social conscience, and is skeptical of politics on all sides

He is also a multi-instrumental musician (guitar, bass, flutes, sax, keys) who digs jazz (especially fusion), Baroque, various ethnic musics, classic rock, blues, and anything else that sounds good.


We welcome YOU . . .

. . . no matter your age, sexual orientation, gender identification, ethnicity, nationality, immigration status, how you are dressed, what you are struggling with (including addiction), or whatever else makes you think the church might reject you. We won't! And, you are welcome if you are a doubter, believer, or just not sure.

If you've been hurt by a church or just hurting, come and give us a chance to help you find God's healing.

Come if you seek to know and share the love of God we know in Jesus Christ.

Children are welcome, too. Let them get into the middle of things and make some noise!
