Greensky Hill Indian United Methodist Church wants all of our neighbors to know
- especially our LGBTQIA+ members, family, & friends -
that we see all the people and we welcome all as beloved children of God. All.
Pentecost Sunday Live includes Pastor's Sarah's Children's Message! We'll re-center, focus on love, and continue working together to create a new normal. We will lament the murder of George Floyd; Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls, and Two Spirit; and the loss of 100,000 neighbors to COVID-19. And we will find hope in the power of the Holy Spirit to transcend difference and heal creation.
This week's video includes Pastor Sarah's Children's Message live! The service is all about what to do with the anxiety we feel, especially in the midst of a global pandemic. We can let it go.
We remain a sanctuary of love in a setting of natural beauty.
We preserve a unique Native Heritage.
We invite people to experience community as sisters and brothers in Christ and empower people to serve all in need.
Our simple log church was built in the 1840's. Surrounded by trees marking the site of a long sacred meeting place, the church was constructed with large hewn logs notched at the corners and laid horizontally over a stone foundation. Much of the lumber used in the building was brought by canoe from Traverse City. Today the church continues to be an active, racially mixed congregation, some of whom are descendants of original worshipers.
When not practicing social distancing, we serve a free hot breakfast every Sunday at 9 a.m. and if you need extra food, we'll send you home with more. No strings attached! All are welcome at our free meals. If you're interested in worship or other church activities, you are more than welcome; however, you should never feel obligated. We also care for our community with United Methodist Women and Men's Club meetings, Grandmother Moon ceremonies, Bible Studies, children's ministry, water protector events, and other activities.
Wherever you are on your spiritual journey, you'll feel welcome at Greensky Hill Indian United Methodist Church, where it's safe to ask the hard questions. We will leave no heart behind.
