Nestled in beautiful, downtown South Lyon, our building is more than just an historic landmark. We are a vibrant and diverse congregation whose mission is to serve Jesus Christ. When our worship concludes Sunday mornings, our service in the world begins.
As our mission statement proclaims: “We are sent out by Jesus Christ to feed God’s people spiritually, physically, and lovingly; planting seeds of hope, compassion and justice within and throughout South Lyon, and wherever else the Spirit leads us.”
WE WELCOME CHILDREN TO WORSHIP WITH US
Why Children Belong in Worship
John Westerhoff, a leading Christian Educator, believes children are necessary in worship. He says faith is “caught” not “taught,” and what better way for children to know what faith is all about than to be a full part of a faith community.
When a child is baptized and is welcomed into our church family, the congregation promises to actively nurture that child’s faith. Together we nurture our children and are nurtured by them. Children give adults the gifts of trust and new viewpoints. Adults share wisdom, experience, and acceptance.
If you feel that your child is not ready for the sanctuary, we invite you to our play room for children aged birth through three where child care will be provided. While your child is in worship, encourage him or her to participate as much as possible, as it is through our participation that we all grow.
