Summer Office Hours

The office is open Monday-Thursday, from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm.  On Fridays, the office is open from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm.


One Night in August:  Join Us Tonight, August 5, from 4:00-8:30, for a time of family fun.  Everyone is invited to join us at the Big Rapids Campus.  We will have outdoor games, a picnic dinner, great conversations, and a family movie!  We encourage you to invite friends and neighbors to join us for an awesome evening!    

Baptism Today:  If you are interested in learning more about baptism, please contact the office.  It is required that you meet with one of the pastors/elders and discuss what baptism means before you will be considered as a candidate. The next baptismal service is planned for Sunday, September 2.

Cheers for Boomers:  If you are 55 years old or above, we invite you to “Cheers for Boomers,” a place where people can know your name, hear your story, and help you finish well in your walk of faith! We will gather for a brief time of worship and prayer, and then have an informal time of discussion around small tables where we talk about our lives, our joys and frustrations, and our hopes for the future!  We will meet Wednesday, August 8, from 10:00-11:30 am, at the church (BR Campus).  

Men’s Fellowship Breakfast:  Mark your calendar for Saturday, August 18, from 8:00-10:00 am, and come to the Men’s Fellowship Breakfast at Two Hats Ranch.  Cost is $10.  Lee Johnson will be sharing his testimony of God’s miracles in his life. 

There Are Always Lots of Places For You To Serve:  We’re here to help you get connected, but the Lord wants you to take responsibility and initiative in being generous with the spiritual gifts and abilities He has given you, so that you can minister to the body.  If you are not sure what to do next, give the office a call, share what God is laying on your heart, and one of the staff will give you a call back.

Can you bring someone to church with you?  Call the office for more details.

Do You Like to Cook?  We are in need of a few more volunteers to make a meal for those who are ill, have been in the hospital or have had a baby, etc.  If you would like to be an encouragement to others in this way, please call the office.
