Our Mission: Provide the congregation with the opportunities to be in mission and to support missions globally, nationally and locally.
Announcing Mission Sunday, October 22, 2017 - Presentation by Vicki Ulrich who is the Community Resource Coordinator for Antrim/Charlevoix/Emmet County DHHS. She will be here to talk about what they do for children in those counties. At the end of the service we will take a love offering to be sent to DHHS. This money will stay in Antrim County and 100% will be used for these children here in our own county.

We, on the Missions Committee, are grateful for your generosity to others within the community and around the world. The Bible teaches us to share our blessings and to be generous to others.
