The Presbyterian Church of Traverse City is a welcoming community of faith. Worship, where we enjoy biblical preaching and inspiring music, is central to our life together as we seek to serve Jesus Christ and wrestle with the “big questions” in life.

We take our love for God into the world, caring for our neighbors in the greater Traverse City area and beyond, through our partnership with many local and international agencies.  Nurturing God’s children of all ages in faith, teaching the joy of serving others, and walking with people who suffer are essential to our ministry.

Our worship is God-centered and celebratory. Our mission is to love as Christ loves. Our ministry is inclusive and affirming of all whom the Holy Spirit has called to serve with us. We seek to help all God’s children to know they are loved, they are of worth, and their lives have meaning. Our hope is Jesus Christ.

Participating in our life together, you will find fellowship with people of all ages and world views. We offer a variety of programs that reflect our love for God and concern for God’s creation. We are grateful for your participation in our family of faith, whether for a Sunday, a season, or a lifetime. We’ve made a place for you. See you in worship!

A Lenten study.
Matt Rawle’s THE GRACE OF Les Misérables.

“This study takes a classic story and uses it to teach profound truths in a way that is easy to understand. Grace collides with justice in each chapter and you won’t be able to look at Les Misérables or your life the same way again.”
