NEW! Mediator is Open
Updated June 18, 2021
Beginning Pentecost Sunday, May 23, 2021, at 10:30am (MI time), we held out first outdoor, in-peron service on the lawn since Fall 2020. We continued with two more outdoor services. On June 13, we held out first in-door, in-person Holy Eucharist service. We continue with in-door, in-person Holy Eucharist each week and will also hold an outdoor service approximately once per month.
On June 11, the Dioceses of Eastern & Western Michigan announced we will enter Phase 3 beginning July 1. Mediator’s first Sunday to be fully open will be Sunday, July 4. We plan to gather outdoors and will have an Ice Cream Social immediately following the service. Watch for more information and details to follow. To read the Dioceses announcement by clicking here.
Watch for service details on the website, in the monthly Mediatorite (Newsletter), or through separate emails.

Parking and Accessibility at The Episcopal Church of the Mediator
We have a large parking area to the south of the church, with a broad, wheelchair-accessible sidewalk leading right to our front door. All are welcome.
The sanctuary is on the same level as the door, so you will not have to navigate additional ramps.
Our restrooms are built to be accessible, as is that most important institution of Episcopal socializing—the coffee hour.
For those who utilize hearing-assisted technology or assistive listening systems, we offer Hearing Loop through the microphones during the services.
The red front door is a nod to our ancient traditional roots. In Medieval Times, one could claim the right of sanctuary by entering a church and touching the altar cloth. The red door was a sign that sanctuary was at hand. We keep this tradition alive by opening our doors to all people.
