The Interfaith Thanksgiving Service is the premier even of the Interfaith Clergy Assoiciation. 

All are welcome on Monday, November 20, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. at The Peoples Church for the interfaith worship service and reception after the service.  

Clergy from a diverse range of faith traditions gather
in a spirit of gratitude gratitude, community and interfaith solidarity as we, together, explore this year’s theme, “Embody
Gratitude.” You will not want to miss the service, the interfaith choir directed by our own Dr. Reed, and a feeling of unity and mutual respect across faith lines. A reception will follow for all in Snider Social Hall. Please join us and post about your experience using #embodygratitude.

ANNIMATION out of darkness 2017

This Lenten season, our Wednesday Night Live! adult formation series “Out of the Shadows” will explore the topics of sexual assault, sexual abuse and human trafficking in our world. These topics make us uncomfortable but need to be brought out of the shadows and into the light.

As we explore these painful topics, we will hear from people on the front lines helping victims, offering serves and shedding light on these topics. Join us each Wednesday at 6:30 p.m in the Robertson Room during Lent.

March 8 | Tashmica Torok from the Firecracker Foundation: “Honoring the bravery of children who have survived sexual trauma by building a community invested in the healing of their whole being.”

March 15 | Jane P. White, Executive Director of Michigan Human Trafficking Taskforce: “To facilitate a collaborative effort to prevent trafficking of persons within the State of Michigan, to pursue prosecution of perpetrators, and to protect and actively support rehabilitation efforts for trafficking victims.”

March 22 | Erin Roberts, Executive Director and Nancy Bates, Community Development Director of E.V.E. (End Violent Encounters). E.V.E provides supportive services to survivors of domestic abuse and sexual violence, while empowering our community through education and awareness.

March 29 | Susie Finkbeiner, author. Her first novel, “Paint Chips,” tackled the tough issues of human trafficking and sexual exploitation. Susie will present on the difficulties and experience of writing a novel on these topics.
