As we share a Pastor/Rector with Holy Trinity Episcopal in Wyoming, MI (5333 Clyde Park Ave. SW), a few times a year we hold joint worship services for both congregations, often at a special time. Below is our schedule for December 24, which falls on a Sunday this year and is both the last Sunday of Advent and Christmas Eve.
Sunday, Dec. 24
10 AM - Joint Advent service at Two Churches
8 PM - Joint Christmas Eve Candlelight Service at Holy Trinity
Our regular Sunday worship is held at 9 AM, and at Two Churches we observe a 7-Week Advent season beginning on November 12.
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 175 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, 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.
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."
