Meal Night: January 22nd

meal-nightOne of our strongest desires and values at the Branch is to see people connected in meaningful, life-giving relationships. Meal nights are one of the ways that we live out this value. As we gather for a meal, names are learned, stories are shared and relationships are deepened.

Our next gathering is Friday, January 22, 6:00PM. Come whenever you’re able – stay for 5 minutes or three hours.  For a map to the Stoke’s home, click here:

Christmas Eve

Join us at 5PM as we enter into the peace and hope of Jesus Christ. Kids will start off the night with a short program, childcare will follow for birth-5th grade.

This week over 50 gifts, bags of personal care items and holiday meals are headed out to families in the surrounding neighborhoods.  It gives us joy to be a part of extending God’s love in this way!

In January, February and March we’re planning on locking arms with Alger Middle School again, as well as reaching out to the homeless and helping a refugee family get settled to a new life in Grand Rapids.  Details coming soon.


branchkidsGod has hopes and dreams for the future of every child.  Which is why we gather kids every Sunday and invite them to learn about their God; to live into the story of redemption; to experience the joy of community; to learn, laugh and play.
