Frequently Asked Questions
We’re a church in the Macomb area with the goal of reaching out to our fellow neighbors and communities with the love and truth of God presented in a contemporary, relevant, and compassionate way. We’re trying to do church in a way that will make the message of Christianity accessible to as many people as possible, but especially to those who are lacking a meaningful church connection in their lives right now.
In the mid-1830s, a small group of community members met for a service that took place at the home of John McCord in the southwestern part of Emmet Township, just East of Argyle State Park.

Of course you can. Argyle provides programs for infants through fifth-grade called the Children's Ministry as well as Student Ministries for middle-school and high-school aged kids. We take seriously our responsibility of lovingly sharing God’s truth with your children, just as we take seriously lovingly sharing God’s truth with anyone.
