Bishop Michael Curry Comes to the UP

MARQUETTE — The Episcopal Diocese of Northern Michigan in partnership with the Northern Great Lakes Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America is pleased to welcome the Most Reverend Michael Curry, Presiding Bishop & Primate of The Episcopal Church to the Upper Peninsula. On Sunday, Oct. 13 beginning at 5 p.m. in the ballrooms of the Northern Center on the campus of Northern Michigan University, Bishop Curry will lead “Revival – The Way of Love UP North”. He is known for his dynamic preaching and his love and enthusiasm for “The Jesus Movement” which he describes as “Following Jesus and growing a loving, liberating, life-giving relationship with God, with each other, and with creation.”

In addition, Bishop Curry made headlines in spring 2018 when he preached at the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Megan Markle. The event is family-friendly and open to everyone–Christians and seekers alike. It will feature charismatic preaching, offerings from local artists and musicians, personal testimony and storytelling, invitation to social action and intentional outreach with people who aren’t already engaged in a faith community. More information about this event can be found at: iam.ec/UPrevival. Doors will open at 4 p.m. Tickets are free but limited to six per person and can be obtained online at: iam.ec/wayofloveupnorth.

The Episcopal Diocese of Northern Michigan was founded in 1895 and comprises 24 congregations across the Upper Peninsula. The Episcopal Diocese of Northern Michigan believes that every person is made in the image of God–beautiful, unique and beloved. We are a community of advocates who strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being. A series of Lutheran Church mergers in 1987 created the Northern Great Lakes Synod, which encompasses the Upper Peninsula and Northeastern Wisconsin and 80 congregations. The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America believes “Together in Jesus Christ we are freed by grace to live faithfully, witness boldly and serve joyfully.” Inquiries about an interview with Bishop Curry, please contact Nancy Davidge at publicaffairs@episcopalchurch.org.
