Rev. Michelle Grunseich
Welcome to Aston Presbyterian Church!
My name is Michelle Grunseich, and I am the pastor and the worship leader here at Aston Presbyterian. I was ordained in 2004, after finishing up my studies at Princeton Seminary, and in the course of my time as a Teaching Elder in the Presbytery, I have had the opportunity to serve as the chaplain at the Children’s Village; as an Associate Pastor for Children’s Ministries; and as the Director of Communications for the Presbytery. Over the years, I have also been fortunate to have the chance to preach and share in worship with a number of churches in the area as a guest minister. Through the challenging times and the joyful times in each experience I’ve had, I am thankful to be a child of God, and to know God’s guidance and grace in hard times and happy times alike.
So on to the important question—where do you find YOURSELF? Are you a life-long Presbyterian? Or a believer in God but not exactly sure what that means? Are you inspired to serve and looking for a worshiping community with whom to share that joy? Are you struggling with grief, doubt, or loss and searching for God’s Word through it all? Are you curious but unsure about church? Have you fallen away from worship but now want to reengage?…..Perhaps you see yourself in a few of these—which puts you in good company with so many disciples in our church and beyond!
We are so glad that you are interested in our congregation, and we would love to have you join us in worship on Sunday mornings at 10:30am to worship together and share fellowship. God’s love and grace know no bounds, and God meets each of us where we are. I am confident that you will find this congregation to be a warm, welcoming place where you can grow as a disciple of Christ.
On behalf of the congregation of Aston Presbyterian Church, I thank you for your virtual visit and I hope that you will join us in person on Sunday! May the grace of God, the love of Jesus Christ, and the communion of the Holy Spirit fill you with peace.
My weekly meditations are shared below. I hope that you will join us this fall in worship!
