About the Project
Eastern Michigan is celebrating 25th years of ministry as a community. As we embark on the next stage of our journey together, we want to reflect and celebrate all we’ve accomplished – both as a diocese and in our individual communities.
The Video Series!
Canon Forsyth sat down with five pairs of storytellers to reflect on our 25 years of ministry together. The series was released on YouTube and on Facebook to close out the end of 2019.

Join the Congregational Project!
All congregations and other communities of Eastern Michigan are invited and encouraged to participate in our Storytelling Project. One aspect of this project is a community survey – tell the story of the work you are doing, of those that came before you, and of where you might be heading next in life together.
So that we can gather the stories for the Convention, the deadline to submit your response is December 31st.
The survey is long, and may take over an hour to complete. We recommend using the questions to conduct conversations with a wider group in your community before submitting your responses.
We will compile each community’s responses and create a document, available to each congregation and diocesan leadership as a snapshot profile of life and mission in your place at this time. We will also use the data to expand our congregations’ stories on the Episcopal Asset Map, the storytelling tool and directory used by the diocese and the wider church.
