Michigan Presbyterian Pilgrimage - Lake Michigan - began because of the great faith of former North Carolina residents George & Gayle Davidson. The Davidsons invited a small group of Christians from west Michigan to attend a Pilgrimage in North Carolina in 2004. In 2005 that small group, with the help of Presbyterian Pilgrimage of North Carolina, held the first Michigan Presbyterian Pilgrimage in the spring.
The weekend is an experience in Christian sharing and living. During the 72 hours, talks will be given by pastors and lay people. The weekend also includes chapel each morning, communion, small group discussions, music, singing, drama, laughter and prayer.
The talks provide a christian perspective on:
-Lay People in the Church
-Importance of Study
Each of the talks deal with living one's life in God's grace and is followed by small group discussion.
The weekend is only the beginning. What you learn and share will hopefully be put into practice in your life. Small groups are offered to affirm one another and to share the Christian life of grace. These activities inspire, challenge and encourage Christian action in homes, churches and communities.
