We truly do believe that God's love is for all people, and you will be welcomed here. Please prayerfully consider us as a “church family” you would like to worship with as we continue to grow in God's amazing love. We look forward to being together in community with you – either in-person or "virtually"! And please contact us if you have any questions.

Welcome to Two Churches

In a spirit of community, Two Churches brings together people from all walks of life. Our congregation believes in justice and equality, love and responsibility, and overcoming denominational tribalism. Here you will find ancient traditions yet modern language, authentic sermons, and open doors. No matter who you are or where you are on your spiritual journey, you are welcome here. Please join us for one of our worship services.

“Together in faith, bringing God’s love to the world.”

What you'll find

Two Churches is a community of Christians who practice an ancient faith through a modern lens. We come together to bring the love of Christ alive in Kentwood.

Worship is both traditional and modern, with scripture readings, a sermon, & prayers. There's typically a Eucharist, also known as Holy Communion — the presence of Christ in the forms of bread and wine (with a gluten-free option available). and you are invited to join us at the Lord's Table. Our Sunday worship service is held at 9 AM both in-person and streamed via Facebook Live. We continue to join together in a prayer for Spiritual Communion for our online worshippers who are not able to physically receive the Eucharist. There will be some organ or piano music provided, the presider may occasionally chant for part of the service, and we will be singing parts of the liturgy and have 2 or 3 hymns/songs. And on some occasions, our "ad-hoc" choir may sing a special song as well.

If you are able to join us at the church, please feel free to wear what’s comfortable. You’ll see a wide range of styles here, from business casual to jeans and shorts. Children of all ages are welcome in our worship – in fact we encourage you to sit closer to the front so they can see better! But we understand too if you’re not always comfortable with that, and there is a nursery room nearby with books & toys if you have need of it. All of our restrooms are equipped with diaper-changing facilities (including a unisex bathroom on the lower level.)

Whether you prefer to worship in-person or online, we hope you can join us. Our worship is typically followed by a coffee hour, and there will usually be some sort of treat available. So please feel free to stick around and get to know us. If you have any questions, please contact the church office. We look forward to meeting you!


Two Churches strives to make a REAL difference in the community around us.
"What happens at Two Churches does not stay at Two Churches!"

Diaper Depot

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 wipes, and currently serves an average of 173 infants & children each month.

Feeding Ministries

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, ACCESS of West Michigan, St. Mark's Breakfast Cafe, and IHN (Interfaith Hospitality Network - a program of Family Promise of Grand Rapids). Our ministries include monthly collections as well as special events.

Other Ministries

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."

Who we are

Two Churches is The Church of the Holy Cross (Episcopal) & Ascension Lutheran Church (ELCA), two Kentwood congregations with a long history of collaboration, who came together in 2014 as one Christian community, worshipping and “being church” together in one building. We are inclusive and ecumenical. We are both Lutheran & Episcopal, yet many of our members & friends come from other backgrounds as well, all finding welcome here. Together, we seek to better understand God’s unconditional love for us all, and to share God’s message of love with the community around us.
