"Bring all the tithes into the storehouse so there will be enough food in my temple.  If you do, "says the Lord of Heaven's Armies, "I will open the windows of heaven for you.  I will pour out a blessing so great you won't have enough room to take it in!   Try it!  Put me to the test!"      Malachi 3:10

    The mission statement of Big Rapids First United Methodist Church;

       "Is to reach out to and bless every child of God."

             Big Rapids First UMC is a Stephen Ministry Congregation.  Please contact the church (231) 796-7771 if you know of someone who needs Christian care and compassion.

We believe that the love of God is the greatest of all gifts, and we seek to follow Christ and share this love with all we meet.  We hope you will embrace this mission too.

If you are considering a new place of worship or a relocation to our area, we would love to have you be our guest.
