Flint Artifacts: Community Presbyterian Church Bulletins

Thanks to Tom Pohrt for these Flint artifacts.


  1. My parents were married at Comm Pres. My Dad was a stalwart of the congregation (member, deacon, board member, etc.) from when he returned from WWII until the church had to close.

  2. My grandparents, my grandmother especially, helped organize the Community Church that later became Community Presbyterian Church. My mother and my aunt were active members their whole life. JWilly, without question my mom and aunt would have known your family.

  3. Gordie, I gotta give you credit for posting the Presby bulletin just above the Rube's item. Such yin and yang.
    Anyway, yes, I'd really like to see a "puppet show," she said shyly, and yes, weren't we all predestined to whack at a pinata or two for Jesus in our time?

  4. Hey, bars and churches figure prominently in my Catholic upbringing.


Thanks for commenting. I moderate comments, so it may take a while for your comment to appear. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at
