Welcome

Everyone is Welcome at God’s Table – And You Are Welcome at Ours


The Episcopal Church of the Incarnation (ECI) is a progressive Episcopal congregation and Interfaith Community that strives to live out the vision of the Beloved Community. Incarnation refers to the spirit becoming embodied in the world and action. Our work together is all about connecting lives, transforming faith, and working for justice.


Our church community is diverse — in age, race/ethnicity, and family structure. We welcome non-traditional families, including single parent; adoptive; multi-racial; and families headed by same-sex couples. Our members are "cradle Episcopalians," people from other faith traditions, and people from no faith tradition at all. Our individual life experiences are also diverse. Some of us are comfortably middle-class, while others are struggling financially. Some come from what they experienced as happy, more easeful lives, while others have been through the fires of despair and rejection. No matter who we were or where we’ve come from, we’ve found new life together at Incarnation.

Sunday Worship Service

Our interactive Sunday service is hybrid–some people attend in person and some participate simultaneously via Zoom. Service starts at 10:30. If you’d like to participate via Zoom from home, please email Rector Joe Summers for that link at jsummers@umich.edu.


We continue to wear masks indoors at this time.

ECI Becomes a Full Parish!


This video tells the story of our 37-year old community, which began as a "mission" church under the supervision of Michigan's Bishop. This video was made for the 2021 Michigan Diocesan Convention during which we were recognized as a full parish of the Episcopal Diocese of Michigan.
