The sponsoring church is Epsilon United Methodist Church, and two other Methodist churches in the area: Harbor Springs United Methodist Church and Alanson United Methodist Churches are working with us to share this part of Northern Michigan with the Christmas International House Visitor.

The city of Petoskey overlooks the shores of Lake Michigan’s Little Traverse Bay in the northern tip of Michigan’s Lower Peninsula; serviced by many highways and year round air service by Delta Airlines in nearby Pellston, Michigan.

Petoskey, has been a destination for visitors for more then 100 years, and for multiple generations. The residents have developed an economy supported by year round tourism with skiing, both downhill and cross country skiing , snow shoeing and snowmobiling in the winter, and boating, sailing, swimming and water sports in the summer in and around Petoskey at Walloon Lake, Harbor Springs, Alanson and Pellston. You can learn about the famous Petoskey Stone, and why Ernest Heming-way proudly called this area his Home for many years. Also, you may discover Camp Petosega and the Inland Waterway to Cheboygan and Lake Huron. People return year round to soak in the rich views, breathe clean air, eat at world class restaurants and shop in the specialty shops and boutiques of the areas downtowns and find information about the famous resort communities of the historic Bay View and the more recently developed Bay Harbor. Bring just three things to Petoskey: your curiosity in sharing developing cultures; a thankful mind and warm clothing! You may experience more than expected as we in Michigan wait to welcome YOU!
