Starr Church is a church that seeks to look beyond ourselves, and to bear fruits for a world in need. Below is a list of our current outreach activities in the community and our partners worldwide. Contact the church office at if you would like to help.

Warming Shelter

Starr Church, along with several churches in the Royal Oak and Berkley areas, host a rotating Warming Shelter for the homeless through the months of December through March. The churches involved open their doors (during their rotation) in the late evenings, offering a hot meal and a warm place to sleep. In the morning, the guests receive breakfast, a sack lunch, and a ride to work if needed.

Each winter, we host a Coffee House Concert to raise funds for the warming shelter. It’s a great event featuring a variety of local bands. Get together a group of your friends and come support us!

AA and Alanon meetings

There are three meetings hosted at Starr Church to help those seeking support:

Sundays:  AA Meeting in the Park, from 1-4 p.m. at Memorial Park in Royal Oak (13 Mile and Woodward). Beginning in October, the group meets at Starr Church.

Tuesdays:  Al-Anon meets at 9:30 a.m. To participate, a person must have a problem with a friend or loved one’s drinking. Before attending your first meeting, please call Laura at (248) 435-0968.
