Current Sermon Series


For the remainder of the summer our sermon series will be, Old Stories For A New Day. During this time together we will take a look at some familiar Old Testament stories/characters and dig deeper into what they mean for us today's world. We hope you can journey with us, either in-person or online (via our YouTube live-streams), for this refreshing exploration.

Pontiac Orchard & Playground


573 S Jessie St, Pontiac, MI

Saturdays | 8am-12pm


This summer (May 1 - Nov 6) we will again ask that individuals/groups/families choose a bed at our Pontiac Community Orchard to weed, mulch, and spruce up. Each flower, vegetable, and fruit bed has been named using the Books of the New Testament. The beds have a specific verse designated from that Book as a reminder of God's goodness and love. You are invited to visit the orchard beds, adopt a specific one for a day or even the summer, and maybe even share the joy you experience with your friends/family and continue to grow in/with this important ministry. Be sure to bring gloves, shovels, trowels, lawn bags, and bags of brown dyed mulch. Please plan to take the lawn bags home with you when you have finished for the day. For more information please email Pastor Bob Hegdal with the link below.
