    Shermanites: Church at Carson City, MI

    A cult has been exposed by a Michigan NBC & Fox station. The cult is a known "secret" by the locals. Rumors of the church have been in that area for a really long time. Also that area has a lot of Mennonites, Catholics and a lot of the ancestry goes back to Germany or Ireland. The church is officially called: Church at Carson City. (Carson City, MI- about 45 miles Northwest of Lansing/Dewitt) The locals call them Shermanites based on the founder Lee Sherman (deceased). He founded it more than 40 years ago. Some of their rules: No tv, no pictures, women can't cut their hair, women wear skirts/dresses, and women "Our women need to be shame-faced and humble." quote from Cheryl Ackley former member and in the article below. Some of the rules seem Amish and/ or old order Mennonite but there isn't any affiliation. And of course the church now has their own school (founded about 20 years ago). Church and school website: http://churchatcarsoncity.org/ And of course it wouldn't be a cult without shunning those that leave! TRIGGER WARNINGS! Anything under a spoiler might be a trigger. NBC station article: https://www.woodtv.com/news/target-8/ex-members-carson-city-cult-hid-sex-crimes/1611715946 It appears the original founder either took advice from the Pearls or the Pearls took advice from the Shermanites. Fox article: https://fox17online.com/2018/11/21/more-sexual-abuse-claims-surface-against-montcalm-co-church-following-vandalism/ MaybeNow! post: http://www.maybenow.com/Shermanites-q4788329 There is a facebook page that says it is about the cult but it isn't. A local, closed facebook page (and I think the article comments on the news f/b pages but I can't find them right now) -says many of the members own businesses around the area including the local quilt shop that many women run and now do a lot of long arm quilting, etc. I can't find much else on them but hopefully past members will start speaking up and they can help put a stop to the cult. One review on maybenow! said there are genetic defects with the kids so they are trying to recruit others.
