Rev. Marianne J. Grano, Pastor

Pastor Marianne Grano is our pastor. A graduate of the University of Michigan and McCormick Seminary, Pastor Marianne previously served at University Presbyterian Church of Rochester Hills. She’s also wife to Dan and mom to Diana and JP. She writes,

If I could use one word to describe myself, it would be passionate–about life, ministry, and most of all about my faith I believe that Jesus offers an alternative to the materialism of our culture.  I believe that serving others cures our own souls.  I believe that God wants to engage our minds as well as our hearts.  I believe that every person, of every age, has a part to play in God’s work of changing the world. I love the caring church family of Starr and our invigorating worship together. I hope you will come visit our church and experience the love of Christ in our midst. If you need prayer, or want to talk, or have questions about our church, please feel free to contact me at pastor@starrchurch.org.
