Welcome to Ann Arbor. Whether moving across the street, country, or world getting used to a new place and environment (graduate/professional school) can be difficult. In moving, finding a new local church is an important part of the transition. While no churches are officially associated with GradCru and vice versa, as you look for your new spiritual home, we wanted to provide some local churches that many members of GradCru have attended over the years.
• GRACE BIBLE CHURCH (Non-denominational)
