First Congregational Church is a multi-generational group of learning, growing, and serving Christians. We are empowered by the Holy Spirit to respond in faith with the Good News of Jesus Christ. Our desire is to love God in our worship, to love God’s people with our service, and in word and deed to share God’s love with all we meet. Whatever your age or stage, God is working through the ministries of FCC to help you find your way in your faith journey. We offer a variety of Bible studies, prayer experiences, ministries, and sermon series' that will help you grow closer to God. We look forward to welcoming you!
"God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble" Psalm 46:1
PRAY- In light of recent developments concerning COVID-19, we are very aware that now is a very important time for people to experience God's comfort. At this time, let us continue to pray for those who have lost loved ones, patients, healthcare professionals on the front lines, and our communities in the midst of COVID-19.
BE WISE - We are also mindful that now is an important time for our church to care for its members by playing a vital role in slowing the transmission rate of this disease. To put our members health first, we have made the decision to cancel worship services through April 12th. In doing so, "Our witness and our example may save lives, especially the lives of those at risk in our own congregations" - Dr. Wes Wallace*
CARE FOR ONE ANOTHER - We remain committed to providing care for one another. Please contact our church office at 231-947-6698 or email Pastor Chad at firstname.lastname@example.org if you or those you love have need of caring ministries support; the office voicemail is monitored and messages will be routed for an appropriate response.
STAY INFORMED - We will continue to monitor the most current information made available by the CDC and the State of Michigan, and will keep the congregation informed via our church's communications when we can safely reinstitute Sunday worship services or may need to take additional steps with weekly groups, events, and worship services.
A BLESSING FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS - “The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace” Numbers 6:24-26
