"Many writers and thinkers have tried to define Freemasonry but it really defeats definition. It is too complex, too profound in conception, to easily expressed in words. Perhaps the simplest and best definition of all is the phrase "the brotherhood of man under the fatherhood of God." Our Masonic forefathers had an understanding of human needs and human aspirations. They may never have dreamed of the mindless computer which governs our lives, or the fission of matter which threatens our lives, but they understood human nature and what motivates the spirit of man. Thus from a simple process of using stone and mortar for building they progressed to the most important of life's functions, the building of character."
-Louis L. Williams

We could fill pages and pages about Freemasonry, the Grand Lodge of Michigan has done an excellent job of explaining it on their website :
Share the Secret.


Consider the following:

1. You must be a man, at least 19 years old.
2. You must reside in the state of Michigan for at least one full year. (six months for military personnel)
3. You must have a belief in a Supreme Being of any faith. (No particular religion or faith is required or excluded; all are welcome.)
4. You should be someone who does, or wants to learn to, enjoy the company of other men from all different social classes, faiths, backgrounds, races, countries, etc. Masonry is universal in its ideals.
5. You should be coming to Masonry "of your own free will and accord", to learn to improve yourself and to enjoy the company of other good people, not because someone keeps pestering you to join or because you think it will help you "get ahead" in business.
6. You must be loyal to our country, a law abiding citizen and of good character.
7. You must ask to join. Many Masons whom you may come in contact with, may think you'd make a good Mason, but they will NOT ask you to join, you must ASK them.

If you are interested in becoming a Mason, you can stop by one of our public events or contact the lodge office.
