Come on in. We want you to feel at home here.
Kick off your shoes, if it makes you happy.
Come as you are, not as anyone thinks you should be.
We don’t pretend to have it all together, not here.
Not this church.
We’re just regular people…

We are Traverse Bay United Methodist Church.

Real People. On a Mission.



Though it seems Easter is long gone, in the church every Sunday is Easter as we gather on the first day of the week to celebrate the resurrection of Christ on the first day of the week.  Here in Northern Michigan, spring seems a long time coming, but finally the rebirth of the Creation celebrates the Resurrection as well.  At Traverse Bay Church, we seek to be “Easter People” year round.  We invite you explore our website, then come and join us for worship.  Hopefully you will experience the presence of the Risen Christ in our midst every Sunday.

Somewhere in all of this I got the call to become a pastor. Probably not at this exact moment though.
