Northern Lakes Community Church – A Presbyterian Church in Traverse City, Michigan


Join us as we work together with the community to help address the issue of limited childcare options in the Grand Traverse area. Over a year ago, our church family looked at our building and realized that we had excess space that could be used for childcare. With that idea (dream), fostered by a leap of faith, supported by prayers and many meetings, we are full speed ahead on making our dream a reality… Loving Neighbors Preschool.
