Riding the Circuit in Montcalm County with Rev. Steve Charnley

Sidney Campus - Heritage Village Church

Retired minister Steve Charnley of Lakeview puts on the clergyman’s coat of his ancestor and steps into a persona of the past to talk about delivering church services, an important spiritual and community outreach, by horseback to the rural residents of Montcalm County years ago. This fascinating, factual portrayal will be followed by a cake and ice cream gathering at the adjacent pavilion.

*Please note that parking for Heritage Village is in MCC’s west lot and there is a brief walk through Heritage Village to the Village Church and the building has a ramped entrance.

ROAD CONSTRUCTION: Sidney Road will be under construction during this time and will be closed from M-66 to the college. Please plan to access the college from the west and allow a few extra minutes for travel.
