Doing really good stuff.

Contact your elected officials

Have you ever wanted to connect with your elected official about an issue that's important to you? makes it easy. It lets you type in your address and select from a list of current issues; it then generates a list of your relevant Members of Congress, their phone numbers, and even a script you can use to say what you want to say. 

Connect with Pastor Rachel

If you'd like to get in touch with Pastor Rachel you can reach her via email: She is also available at church during office hours, generally 9:00 a.m.–noon, Monday–Thursday. Please call in advance if you can so tht she can set aside time to meet with you (616.455.4260).

Our Faith, Our Vote, Our Voice

Your Vote is Your Voice - Don't Give It Up!

October 9 - Voter registration deadline for General election.
November 6 - General election.

Voting is a natural extension of faithful action. The decisions made by our representatives have a wide reaching impact. We have enormous potential to make positive change. We must engage our legislators, vote, and encourage everyone in our communities to do the same. - UCC website

Follow this link to the Secretary of State Voter Information Center. It will tell you all you need to know to vote including your precinct, how to register, absentee voting, and more. As we get closer to November 6, you will be able to view a personalized Sample Ballot. Please note: Michigan WILL NOT have Straight Ticket voting. You will need to mark the ballot for each individual candidate. You are allowed to bring in a "cheat sheet" with you when you vote. The Voter Information Center will make it easier for you to generate one.


Hurricane Relief via United Church of Christ

Last week Hurricane Florence roared ashore in the US Carolinas. Although downgraded from a hurricane to a tropical storm, communities are experiencing mass flooding. The large scope of devastation is just beginning to be known. UCC Disaster Ministries is responding to the needs of people affected by the hurricanes both within the United States and around the world. You can designate your offering or a portion of your offering to "UCC Hurricane Relief" at worship. You can donate now on the UCC website, or you can mail your gifts to the United Church of Christ:
Attn: Financial Services
United Church of Christ
700 Prospect Ave. 6th Floor
Cleveland, OH 44115

Please write "2018 Hurricane Relief" in the memo line.

Whatever you are able to give, know that your contribution will help to deepen the impact of the UCC's immediate response and long-term recovery work.
