Welcome to the Grand Traverse District
We are a district made up of 67 churches; starting all the way up north at Indian River then south to Charlevoix, Empire, Manistee and ending at Hart and Mears on the Lake Michigan shoreline. Then inland to Leroy, Cadillac, Kalkaska and Mancelona and every United Methodist church in between, all west of I-75.
Our vision is to “Connect, Inspire, Equip, Repeat”.
We would love to have you join us at any one of the Grand Traverse District churches.
“No one sews a piece of unshrunk cloth on an old cloak; otherwise, the patch pulls away from it, the new from the old, and a worse tear is made.22And no one puts new wine into old wineskins; otherwise, the wine will burst the skins, and the wine is lost, and so are the skins; but one puts new wine into fresh wineskins.” Mark 2:21-22 (NRSV)
DISTRICT #2 DISTRICT CONFERENCE
OUR NEW NAME is NORTHERN WATERS
It was a day of celebration and new beginnings. There was time for getting acquainted with each other and celebrating our faith as we came together to worship!
Thanks to everyone who came and brought some water to be shared. It was a wonderful visual to see representatives from each church come forward and pour “their” water into a basin.
