What to Expect on Sunday Mornings

All are welcome to Sunday morning worship at 10:30 a.m. at 5509 S. Pennsylvania Ave. in Lansing, which is accessible by the South Lansing Pathway trail system and the CATA bus system.

Our worship services are American Sign Language interpreted, and our Sanctuary is equipped with a Hearing Loop System for those with hearing assistance devices. Braille and large-print hymnals are available from the ushers. Our church is wheelchair accessible. If there is any other accommodation that would help you participate more fully in the life of our congregation, please contact the church office or the minister

There is no dress code at our church. Most congregants wear casual clothing, while some choose to dress up. You are welcome to "come as you are," wearing anything that is comfortable for you.

Children and youth join us at the beginning of worship for story and song and then, on most Sundays, they are given the option to go to Religious Education workshops. We hold worship services for all ages from time to time, often for holidays.

There is a staffed nursery for babies and children up to age four. Some children prefer to play with the toys, books, and fun childcare providers in the nursery while their parents enjoy the worship service. Others want to stay with their parents in service. Families are welcome to decide.

After each service, we gather for coffee and conversation. Newcomers are invited to sign our Guest Book, request a name badge, and browse our current classes and groups.

Welcome and Membership classes are offered throughout the year, for those who would like to learn more about our faith tradition and our church. 

At most coffee hours, volunteers sell packages of our Fair Trade coffee and other treats in the Social Hall.

Our volunteer-run Grove Street Book Shop sells used books and music just off the Atrium.

About 35 people volunteer to make church happen each week. We have 13-15 volunteers working with the children and youth and around 20 more volunteers making the sound and slideshow happen, selling Fair Trade coffee, brewing the coffee many of us enjoy, managing the Book Shop, ushering and greeting, being a celebrant, counting the offering, and singing in the choir. That’s at least 35 people each week, 52 weeks a year! As a part of this community, you shape how this community looks. If you would like to be a part of this fulfilling Sunday morning ministry, please take our Get Connected survey, browse our volunteer opportunities, or contact Connections Coordinator Corie Jason, who will help you find a deeper connection to our community.
