GROWING TOGETHER ~ Thursday, July 1, 2021

In early January of 2021, Greater Lake Michigan Urantia Association launched a new support group of service and goal-oriented members and friends – in keeping with the tradition of our GLMUA motto: “embracing joyful, active, participation…”

The first two meetings were a great success, in fact so much that the meeting time was expanded to two hours after the first session. Attendees had the opportunity to introduce themselves and each person chose a goal that would in some way add truth, beauty, and goodness in their lives and the lives of others. Side support trios were suggested for those who wanted to have a more involved group experience.

We plan to meet quarterly to support each other in achieving our chosen goals for the remainder of 2021. After that time we will review the possibility of meeting more frequently. For more information about registration please click on the following link. Enter your contact info, and we’ll send a confirmation email and the Zoom link to be admitted into the meeting.



Rick and Susan Lyon will be hosting a celebration in honor of Jesus’ birthday inviting everyone to attend at lovely Silver Beach Dunes Shelter in St. Joseph, Michigan.

Dunes Pavilion, 101 Broad Street, St. Joseph, MI 49085

The shelter has reserved for Sunday, August 22nd from 9:00 am to 10:00 pm Eastern time, and we hope for a large, wonderful gathering by the lake reminiscent of the times our Master spent by the Sea of Galilee with his Apostles nearly 2000 years ago. Let’s pray together, inviting him to rendezvous with us – his modern apostles by the lake – enjoying friendship, fellowship, good food and fun – and in keeping with the tradition of our Greater Lake Michigan Urantia Association motto: “embracing joyful, active, participation…”

The park at Silver Beach in Berrien County, Michigan offers so much for those who will attend. Silver Beach offers white sand, incredible scenic views of Lake Michigan, and a variety of things to do for the whole family, including volleyball, skating, hiking trails, a pier with picturesque lighthouses, sculptures of local artists, two large children’s play areas, shaded areas, easy access, and a gorgeous carefully restored historic carousel. Snack and restroom facilities, as well as plenty of parking are close by the pavilion. There are short paved sidewalks up to the pavilion to accommodate those with special needs.

For those who would like to spend the weekend in the beautiful historic town of St. Joseph make sure to reserve your room in advance (as soon as possible). You will enjoy the cultural downtown with the Krasl Art Center, Centennial Park and shopping, along with the Margaret Upton Arboretum, and unique features such as a railroad turnstile swing bridge and a raised bridge to allow tall ships to pass.

Bring a lawn chair for each person and a covered dish for the Potluck dinner and we will all enjoy celebrating our beloved Master in one of the most beautiful settings possible. Bring musical instruments! Birthday cake for everyone!
