Hello. If you are visiting our website for the first time, welcome.
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Two Churches has followed the recommendations and directives of our Lutheran (ELCA) Synod and Episcopal Diocese, which in turn has been based on CDC recommendations. For three months we were restricted to offering a Service of the Word through Facebook Live. But as of July 5th, we have now moved into Phase II of the Pastoral Directive from the Diocese and are now allowed to return to in-person worship at our building, though with limitations to protect all concerned.
We are continuing to live-stream our service on our Facebook page. Whatever your comfort level, whether you choose to visit in-person or stream our service. we invite you to join us for worship on Sundays at 10am.
If you choose to join us in-person, these are some of the changes you will see from our more "typical" worship service:
Low-income families with infants & small children often have to choose between diapers and other necessities such as food or transportation. Diaper Depot helps those families stretch their budgets by offering a free package of diapers, and currently serves an average of 173 infants & children each month.
Much of our community ministry efforts focus on supporting organizations that seek to find solutions to poverty, and more specifically food insecurity. This includes the Green Apple Food Pantry (formerly John Knox Food Pantry), and ACCESS of West Michigan, and our ministries include monthly collections as well as special events.
Matthew 22:36-40 teaches us that we are to love our neighbors as ourselves, and it is our understanding that this means EVERYONE. We strive to show that love in a tangible way through a variety of programs and volunteer events. Reflecting a key phrase of the ELCA, this is "God's Work. Our Hands."
