Welcome to Holly Presbyterian Church!
A member of Lake Huron Presbytery,
Presbyterian Church (USA
)

We are a joyful family of faith
that nurtures knowing, growing, sharing, and serving as followers of Christ
within our church, our community, and around the world through peaceful and loving relationships.

 

Whether you're a visitor or member, this Website is dedicated to serving as a source of congregational information and, maybe, even inspiration.  Start your visit by reading the news below, or by clicking the links on the left.  You will find a virtual sketch of the people and life of Holly Presbyterian Church, which will give you a sense of who we are and the journey of faith we are now on. 

If you have feed-back for us, please do not hesitate to get in touch with our Outreach Team chairperson Donna DeNise, or our Website manager, Walter Brown.

Congregation

Special Announcements

Change of Worship Service Hours

The Session decided at their July meeting that all Worship Services will now be at 11:00 a.m.


COVID-19 Delta Variant Update

The session has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and has determined
that due to the increasingly high transmission rate of the Delta Variant in Oakland County
and the surrounding counties, the following clarification is needed regarding our
“Rules for Wearing a Mask and Social Distancing During Coronavirus Pandemic” policy.


The Session strongly encourages everyone to wear masks in the church building, even
if they are vaccinated.
  However, those who have been vaccinated are not required to do so.

For those who have not been vaccinated, a section of the sanctuary will be marked-off
as an area in which masks are required and physical distancing must be maintained.
If you have any questions with regard to the seating, please ask our ushers for assistance.

During worship services, the first three rows on the east (right) side of the Sanctuary
will be roped off, as well as the first row on the west (left) side of the Sanctuary.

There will be no singing during the worship services,
as singing can enhance the spread of infected aerosol particles.

And if you are not feeling well, please do not come to the Sunday Worship services.
You can watch a service being live streamed on YouTube through this Website
during the time of the service, or you watch a video of the service later.

“Rules for Wearing a Mask and Social Distancing During Coronavirus Pandemic.

Our Worship Services are now streamed live each Sunday at 10:00 a.m. on YouTube.

Prayers For Our Missionary Families
The Holly Presbyterian Church supports two missionary families as part of our ongoing outreach to the world: the Keefer family (serving Christ through their Athletes in Action ministry at U of M in Ann Arbor, Michigan) and the Iobst family (serving Christ through the Operation Transit ministry in Paris, France).  We are called to act as the hands and feet of Christ in our world, and because we cannot all serve in full time ministry, we offer our support financially, and spiritually, to those who do. Please pray for these families and consider sending them a note or e-mail of encouragement.
