We’re part of a fun experiment in building sharing

Sharing is a core practice of faith. Our co-hosts, St. Clare’s Episcopal Church and Temple Beth Emeth have successfully shared a building since 1970—forging an interfaith relationship that is likely one of a kind in the nation. Together, the two congregations have formed a partnership called Genesis. Genesis is providing rental space to Blue Ocean Faith Ann Arbor. Here’s what you need to know:

when to go

Our Sunday service begins at
11 a.m. and ends about 12:15 p.m.

pre-service middle school meetings

The historic yellow house with white trim on the St. Clare’s/Temple Beth Emeth property (known as “Wisdom House”) is available to us for our Middle School Program (grades 6-8) from 10:30 to 11 a.m. St. Clare’s/Temple Beth Emeth has graciously made this available for special meetings throughout the week. We love the people of St. Clare’s and Temple Beth Emeth!

where to go

That’s a little more complicated, since we meet in the social hall of St. Clare’s Episcopal Church/Temple Beth Emeth. St. Clare’s has services at 9 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. on Sundays in the main sanctuary (doors far left). We meet in the social hall (doors to the right).

Look for the “Blue Ocean Faith” signs to help guide you to the door you’re looking for. And, if you accidentally end up at St. Clare’s…enjoy!

where to park

Members and visitors are encouraged to park in the Bgreen parking lot, a block toward Stadium Blvd, on Packard. On-street parking is also available in the nearby neighborhoods, but we ask you not to park in the St. Clare’s parking lots (on the side and in the back of the facility). We want to be good neighbors to our host congregation and not compete for parking. There is a circle drive that can be used for drop-off and pick-up.

If you require handicap parking, there are often spots available on the circle drive. You are also welcome to use any of the handicap parking spaces located on the side and back of the building.
