Below you'll find information about what to expect during Sunday Worship Services, followed by directions to our church.

Join Us for Sunday Worship Service!

Our Sunday morning worship service is hybrid –– some people attend in person and some participate simultaneously via Zoom. Service starts at 10:30am. 

If you’d like to participate via Zoom from home, please email Pastor Dean Aponte-Safe for that link at If coming in person, please enter through the double door off back of the parking lot. Our entire building--entrance, chapel, social hall, and restrooms--is accessible. 

What to Expect During Sunday Service

Sunday morning worship begins at 10:30am and lasts until about noon. Service is followed by a social hour, where we enjoy food and conversation.

Children’s Ministries: 

Children at Incarnation are invited to join Sunday morning youth programming, which takes place during the worship service in our youth room each Sunday morning, beginning at 10:30am. Programming ranges from a youth reflection time at the beginning of service, to arts and crafts, stories, and other activities appropriate to children's development and questions. Our children's ministry seeks to be a space where all know that they belong, and is welcoming and affirming of our children's experiences and wonders. For more information, please contact Pastor Dean Aponte-Safe at

Other Expectations for the Service: 

You'll experience many of the same elements that are common in other Episcopal churches, including call-and-response readings, the Book of Common Prayer, and readings from Scripture. Some of the prayers we use are ancient, but others reflect a God who is always drawing us toward new ways of experiencing joy, tenderness, and wonder. However, the goal is always the same-–not to conform to some idea of what you “should” believe, do, or feel, but to connect with your deepest self and participate with the wider family who follow in the Way of Jesus or walk in the way of love. Everyone is welcome at God’s table, and you are welcome at ours.

Our Communion is also inclusive, with a choice of wine or grape juice and gluten-free bread. 

Below are some of the values we dedicate ourselves to:

Masking Policy:

Masking is optional. However, people with colds who are experiencing any respiratory symptoms are expected to wear a mask, in order to help ensure the health and safety of all in attendance.

Directions to Episcopal Church of the Incarnation

When our chapel was built, we were surrounded by open land and farmhouses. Now the area is quite built up. Our church is not visible from the road, as it is set far back. We want to make it easy to find us. 

Set your GPS for 3257 Lohr Rd, Ann Arbor. That should be enough, but to ensure you can locate our driveway, here's some help. (Township requirements don't permit us to place our sign as close to the road as we would like.)

If you're coming from Ann Arbor-Saline Rd, you'll be heading south on Lohr Rd. You'll pass the strip mall with Best Buy and Kohl's on your right and then new apartments on your left. Right after the entrance to the apartments you'll see an illuminated crosswalk, and immediately after, you'll be at our driveway entrance, also on your left. You should see our sign. We have yellow reflective sticks on either side of your driveway.

If you're coming from Ellsworth Rd, you'll be heading north on Lorh Rd. You'll pass a subdivision and condo developments. Then you'll see a historic white farmhouse on your right. The next driveway is ours. You should see our sign. We have yellow reflective sticks on either side of your driveway.

By the way, the white farmhouse adjacent to us is the house where architect David Byrd and his family live when he built our chapel. The house later became the David Byrd Center) and is where the the new African American Cultural and Historical Museum of Washtenaw County will be housed. We are delighted to have them as neighbors!
