Is Grosse Pointe Congregational the kind of church you can get involved in?
We would love to have you visit and find out!
We are from all walks of life and from many parts of the journey. Our common faith brings us together to share and care for each other.
Imagine not going outside to play with your peers or not going to school because you do not have a warm winter coat! Facing a Michigan winter without a warm coat is a daunting thought for most of us but a reality for many children in Southeast Michigan. In the metro Detroit area, including the Grosse Pointes and Harper Woods, thousands of needy children do not have adequate clothing. However, thanks to Operation Warm, more than 2500 children can be warm and toasty as they brave the cold this winter.
Operation Warm is a local effort with national roots. The metro area project began in 2012 when the Grosse Pointe Rotary, Grosse Pointe Sunrise Rotary, Detroit Rotary and Detroit A.M. Rotary combined resources to promote the program and raise funds. New coats are purchased from the national clearinghouse at a cost of approximately $20 per coat. A nonprofit enterprise in Kentucky is making 20% of the coats this year.
Rotarians work with Crossroads of Michigan, the National School Lunch Program in Grosse Pointe and Harper Woods, For the Seventh Generation, the Children’s Center of Detroit, Northeast Guidance Center, and Matrix Human Services. These agencies know the needs of the families for whom they provide services and distribute coats to these families. Rotarians raise funds, order and distribute the coats to the partner agencies before winter’s chill arrives.
Sherry McRill, President and CEO of Northeast Guidance Center states “this annual event has far reaching effects beyond the gift of warmth. Not having a coat impacts health and literacy.” Having a brand new coat also promotes self-esteem. The goal of Operation Warm 2016 is to raise funds that will provide the resources to purchase 2500 coats. I hope members of Grosse Pointe Congregational will continue their generosity as shown in the past four years. A donation of only $20 will buy a coat for a child and have a huge impact on that child’s well-being.
Please use the blue or yellow envelope and mark it for Operation Warm. Thank you.

On March 13, 2016 the congregation voted at our Annual Meeting to become an Open and Affirming congregation. We made a covenant to include all people into the life of the congregation adding to our Church By-laws, Article III. "Covenantal Relationships" the following language:
We are banded together as a Christian Church to promote the worship of God, to proclaim the Gospel of Christ, to develop in people a consciousness of their relations and duties to God and one another, and to inspire them with love for truth, passion for righteousness, and enthusiasm for service. This community of faith is an open and affirming congregation which seeks to welcome all persons, including those of all races, ethnicities, ages, sexual orientations, gender identities and expressions, family structures, faith backgrounds, abilities and economic circumstances. We pledge our loyalty to Christ and covenant with each other to strive to express His spirit in our individual and corporate life; to live together as Christians and to submit ourselves to the government of this church, working, giving, praying for its increase, its purity, its peace and seeking in every way to make it a power for the building up of the Kingdom of God.
