Daily COVID infections are at the extreme level in Houghton County (over 75 new daily cases per 100,000 people). If you can watch from home I encourage you to do so. If you do attend in-person, please wear a mask as you enter and exit worship on October 31. After the opening songs, if you’d like to take your mask off you can. Please put your mask back on for the closing song, and to exit.

I know we’d like to be done with this by now, but we’re not. Over 1,300 people are dying from COVID each day in the United States right now. Michigan is better than some places, but cases are rising here. So doing what we can to protect others is a way we can live out our calling to love our neighbors as ourselves.

We have resumed Sunday school for children and youth (no adult Sunday school yet).

Sunday school will start at 9:30 am. Masks are strongly encouraged.

Worship will start at 10:45 am. This will be our schedule until the Sunday before Memorial Day.

We are offering in-person worship, and a live stream starting at 10:45 am (the live stream is on our Facebook page and YouTube channel – see the link below). COVID cases have dropped, but we still need to be vigilant in protecting each other (most children haven’t been vaccinated yet). So we encourage you wear a mask as you enter and during the opening songs. You may remove your mask after that. Please put your mask back on for the closing song and as you exit.

The Church office will still be open Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 8:30 am to 1:30 pm. If you are not fully vaccinated, we ask that you please wear a mask if you stop by the office

If you have recently noticed any of the following symptoms please do not come to worship or the office: cough, sore throat, nasal congestion, runny nose, fever, shortness of breath, loss of taste or smell

We will continue to post weekly sermons here, and on the church Facebook page

Here’s a link to the Church’s Youtube channel, where you can find a live stream of our Sunday worship

We are still the church, and are figuring out new ways to stay connected. Call a friend or two for social connection. God will get us through this. Stay home and be safe.

We want to meet you where you are in your faith life and help you take the next steps to growing an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ!

  • Here, you will find a place to become involved and make a difference in our world.
  • Here, you will find a home – a place you can be yourself and honestly explore your spirituality.
  • Here, you will find opportunity to study scripture and pressing issues of the day with other Christians in an open-minded environment that encourages discovery.

Children, teenagers, university students, families, empty-nesters, and seniors work together to build community and to share the blessings of God with those who are less fortunate.

Now is the perfect time to come and check out the many activities and opportunities for personal and communal growth.

If you’re visiting for the first time you might not know where to park (sorry – we’re working on making it more obvious. We’re all a work in progress aren’t we). There are a couple of parking lots we use across the street, on both sides of the bank building, and behind the bank building. You can also park in the spaces on the steet. The first, or East door is the main door, but either one will get you where you need to be.
