  • COMPASSIONATE Recovery

    A hurt, habit or hang-up can be anything that keeps you from realizing your full potential as a person. Hurts, habits and hang-ups can knock you off of God’s plan and throw you into a worldly detour headed toward destruction and despair. A “hurt” could be classified as any life experience that may have damaged your heart. Some offense against you that crippled your ability to deal with the world in a healthy way. Something that may have twisted your view of yourself, God or others. Some common hurts include: Abandonment • Abortion • Abused as a child, or by a spouse, employer, or the church • Adoption • Betrayal • Dysfunctional family (divorce, alcoholism, drug abuse, rage, etc.) • Neglect • Rape • Rejection “Habits” tend to be unhealthy patterns that often start as a perceived “remedy” for some problem in your life, but end up turning into a chronic bad behavior or addiction. Habits are the repeat, default scripts you run to when the going gets tough. They are your grooved plays that continually lead to trouble in your life. Some common habits are: • Abusive behavior • Alcohol • Bitterness • Cheating, affairs, unmarried sex • Critical spirit • Drugs • Eating disorders • Gambling • Gossip • Homosexuality • Isolation • Lying • Self-mutilation • Sex addictions • Spending problems • Stealing • Unforgiveness • Wasteful pursuits • Workaholism And lastly, “hang-ups” are those road blocks that keep you from progressing further in God’s plan for your life. They are often shaped by some bent thinking you may have received as a child, or some unhealthy attitude you may have adopted as a means of coping with life’s challenges. Here are some common hang-ups. • Anger • Anxiety, worry • Arrogance • Body image problems • Bullying, bigotry • Codependency • Control freaks • Depression • Fear • Frigidity • Greed, envy • Guilt (false) and/or shame • Impatience • Lack of self-control • Lack of trust in God • Laziness • Materialism • People pleasing • Perfectionism • Pride • Procrastination • Racism • Self-righteousness • Self-condemnation Almost everyone suffers from a hurt, habit or hang-up.

  • Youth Ministry

    The Mix is an awesome place for students looking for a perfect opportunity to meet new friends and grow in their relationship with God. At Tri Point Church of God, youth have a blast playing outrageous mixers, worshipping God, lifting each other up in prayer and studying & applying God's Word to their own lives. Wednesday nights at 6:30pm is a great (and sometimes crazy...) place to get plugged in and meet a bunch of cool kids looking to learn more about Jesus. So, rather than sitting at home on a Wednesday night watching Netflix, why not come and hang out at the coolest place in town! We also meet every Sunday morning at 9am.

  • Christmas Joy

    Bringing joy & hope through Christmas gifts and food to needy or disadvantaged people in Oscoda County, MI has been going on for 30+ years. Each year a list is generated by DHS and various other "tips". Monetary donations are collected by Tri Point Church of God congregation and a few volunteers do the shopping & wrapping. Gifts are then delivered to each home before Christmas. It takes many volunteers assisting in this ministry.

    May my lips overflow with praise, for you teach me your decrees. May my tongue sing of your Word, for all your commands are righteous. Psalm 119:171-172


    We value the worship of God in both our personal and corporate lives. We seek to worship and celebrate God's love in ways that are authentic, culturally relevant, that honor God and inspire those who attend our services. Romans 12:1-2 and Psalm 100:2-4 We believe gathered worship expressed through music and the arts: Is vital expression of church community life as the people of God come together to celebrate His goodness. Psalm 95:1-7 Helps bring people to an awareness of the presence of God. Encourages the community of God's people to connect with, encounter, and express their praise and love for Him. Colossians 3:16 Articulates the praise of all creation. Revelation 5:13 Shifts the focus from ourselves to God, and reminds the church that He is the center of our personal and church life. Creates an environment for the Holy Spirit to minister. Has a teaching role through scriptural truth in song. Psalm 119:172 Prepares hearts to receive God's Word through the message. Witnesses to unbelievers. Psalm 40:3 Inspires the people to go out and live as spirit and truth worshippers. Romans 12:1-2
