Who Are We?

 Thank you for taking the time to look over our site!  We welcome you.  Lake Ann United Methodist Church has a long history in the small village of Lake Ann, MI.  Did you know that Lake Ann used to be the hub of action?  Before Traverse City grew, Lake Ann was a happening place  for sawmill activity.  If you want to know more you should come to the village and stop by our museum, it's pretty fascinating!


Our church began in a pretty grass-roots way, as folks gathered to discuss their desire for a church.  A few strong wills and ideas led to the building of the first church.  We now worship in the second building, which was renovated in the 80's.  In the late 1990's, after the church experienced quick growth it was clear that a bigger building was necessary.  Our Community Center was finished in 2001.  In the summer our Sunday services also utilize the building.


Our hopes for The Community Center are many and we have started to rent the facility for weddings, receptions, banquets, and retreats.  The Neighborhood Play Group meets there on the 2nd & 4th Friday from 10:00 am to 11:30 am.  We also use it for community open-gym, movie nights, and family fun days.  


Lake Ann UMC is a place filled with people from all walks of life.  We know that it's ok to wear jeans on Sundays and that being the Body of Christ is about being real with each other.  We are people of all ages who work hard and love to play.  Come say hello!
