Latest updates

In light of the current pandemic situation, and the high priority we place on the health and safety of our congregation and community, we have temporarily changed many of the ways in which we operate. However, we assure you that despite these changes our church is not closed and that we are continuing to offer ministry that provides a sense of hope, peace, and stability in the midst of this uncertainty and fear. Below are some of the most current ways we are adjusting our ministries for the time being. To stay connected and updated on more detailed church happenings, visit our This-Week page. Also, please remember that Online-Giving opportunities are always available.

Growth Groups


Growth Groups are a vital aspect of our ministry. They are small groups that provide a safe place to meet new friends and grow deeply in faith throughout the year. You definitely do not have to be a member to participate. Groups are currently using virtual Zoom video conferencing. Registration is now being facilitated through Realm, our new church software. If you do not have a Realm account please call or email the church office and we will send you a link that will allow you to create an account and sign up for groups.





Indoor Worship Paused


Due to the prevalence of COVID-19 in Oakland County, we have paused indoor worship and other ministry events at our Clarkston Campus. We will of course continue our Online Worship at 9:30am as well as our Parking Lot Worship at 11am every Sunday. We very much appreciate your flexibility and prayerful support and we thank you for all of the ways you are creatively connecting and growing in faith. As we've said from the beginning of this difficult pandemic, our church has NEVER closed. Below is the link to a letter written by Senior Pastor Jonathan Heierman, that discusses all of this in more detail, as well as an updated schedule.

Pastoral Care


We want to assure you that despite everything that is going on, our pastors remain available for our community. Whether you have an emergency, are in need of counseling, or something else altogether, your needs remain our highest priority. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us for pastoral care of any sort during these challenging times. You can also send us Prayer Requests if you find that is helpful in any way.
