We don’t have a big, lofted logo that’s visible from the highway, and if you’re looking for a swanky sign pointing out our facility, you won’t find it. So if you’re making plans to visit Mars Hill, it’s smart to stop here first for a bit of the scoop.
Our community gathers for teaching and worship on Sunday mornings at 9am and 11am each week in the Shed, which is a big box of a room, formerly the anchor store of an old mall. [Unless it’s between June 7 and Labor Day—then we have one Gathering at 10am.] We meet to discover the way of Jesus, to connect with community, and to explore together ways we can serve one another and others. We’d love it if you’d join us and participate in one of our upcoming Gatherings.
NOTE: During the Summer [June 7 until Labor Day], we’ll hold one Sunday Gathering at 10am.
Our offices are open Monday through Thursday from 8:30am to 5pm, EST. We’ll roll out a welcome mat for you [or at least someone friendly will say hello] at our Office entrance, which is just to the left [east] of our main North Entrance.
Aim in the direction of 3501 Fairlanes Ave, Grandville, MI, and keep in mind that West Michigan is the convergence of intersections 196, 96, and 69, which can confuse even locals. We highly recommend carpool buddies for help with navigation, although they’re not necessary to the experience. Click on the links below for common routes to Mars Hill.
