Church of the Wild - Leelanau

Church of the Wild is a growing movement dedicated to helping people reconnect to the sacred all around us in the vibrant and living world. It is an experiential encournter with the Divine, a chance to be with others, and in the silence of God for a time.

We meet on the third Thursday of each month at 4 pm, gathering outside as much as possible. There is time to connect with others and wander on the land; there are specific provisions being made for those who cannot walk far  

Our next gathering will be Thursday, July 18th at 4 pm at 10155 East Engles Road (off M-22, 2 miles south of Norhtport - the Northport to Leland route).

If possible, please call us at 231/386-5037 or send an email to to help us plan for everyone.
