  • Jesus of Nazareth - Because the sins of the world included yours.

"Being a Christian

is more than just an

instantaneous conversion

it is a

DAILY PROCESS

whereby you grow

to be more

and more

Like Christ"

                                       Billy Graham

          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 are committed to living out of the love of Jesus Christ.  Our simple mission statement is significant.  It reminds us that we are all children of God, no matter our age.  Our mission activates our faith, by sending us into the world to be a blessing. 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.

When you visit our church, you will find:
