New Safety Protocols


In light of the revised guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and the State of Michigan, we have prayerfully developed our new COVID safety protocols. These new protocols are intended to guide us through June. However, it is important to remain flexible, as we will be constantly monitoring and reassessing and, if necessary, revising these guidelines. Below you will find the link to a letter written by Pastor Jonathan Heierman that describes all of these changes in detail. There is also a link to the condensed version of the revised protocols.

Sundays | 9:30am


Every Sunday we share a live-streamed worship service through our YouTube channel. These services can be watched live at 9:30am or replayed anytime after for your convenience. They are complete with engaging music and meaningful sermons. We very much hope that you can join us for worship in this new and exciting way. These services are also an easy way for you to share your faith with family and friends as well! Below is a link to the latest service.

Weekly Prayer (6/13)


God of amazing grace and love, we come before you seeking to know more fully your will as we reboot our lives for a new day. We know you desire a deep and abiding relationship with us based on faith and trust. Help us to turn toward you with open hearts and minds, that we may honestly share our deepest needs and hear your voice more clearly. Help us be persistent in prayer and faithful, even when we find it hard to hear your voice and have so many choices to make. Above all, remind us that we are never distant from you and your loving guidance in every part of our lives. We pray this in Jesus' name. Amen.

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 while staying physically distanced and following guidelines AND spending Time With The Father. 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, bags of brown dyed mulch, and face coverings. Please plan to take the lawn bags home with you when you have finished for the day.
