Welcome to Topinabee Community Church. Our mission is simple – to help people develop and maintain an intimate relationship with God. We are a non-denominational church made up of people from a wide variety of religious backgrounds.
We are not perfect, but we are all genuinely seeking a way to celebrate what Jesus has done, is doing, and will do in our lives. We believe that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purpose. (Romans 8:28)
We hope you will have the opportunity to join us as we enjoy fellowship with God. You will be welcomed, accepted as you are, and encouraged to grow in Christ.
The new Nativity was installed by Art Mills, Paul Chapoton, Dave Harrington, Brian Callaghan and Andrew Ridley

Sincerity and I-96 “Jesus said to
him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father
except through me.’” John 14.6 NRSV
Several years ago, I was returning to my home in northern Michigan after
visiting family in southern Illinois. I was cruising up I-69, listening to tunes on the radio and
snacking on chips and a soft drink. The weather was gorgeous and I was feeling
I glanced up and saw what I thought was a sign indicating
where I-69 was going and obediently followed its direction. I continued having
a wonderful drive on a warm, sunny afternoon.
The next sign that caught my attention an hour later was the
one saying that I was twenty miles from Grand Rapids. I didn’t want to go to
Grand Rapids. I wanted to get home up north. It was then I noticed I was not on
I-69 anymore, but was rocketing across I-96.
I could drive on I-96 all day and the rest of the week and
never get home. It didn’t matter how carefully I drove or how sincerely I
wanted I-96 to get me home, it never, ever would.
Some folks like to say, “We’re going to the same place,
aren’t we?” Only if we are on the right road.
