Sunday Worship

9:00am & 11:00am

You’re invited! Come check out one of our Sunday services at 9:00am or 11:00am. Our PreK-5th grade program “Kids Crew” is offered during the Second Service. The children start out in the main sanctuary and then are dismissed for their program after congregational singing. We’re a diverse congregation, and we will accept you just as you are. Some of us dress up, while others simply wear blue jeans. Don’t even worry about it – God looks at the heart. Take one look at our pastors socks, and you’ll see what we mean. Ultimately, this is a safe place to connect with God and with people. We look forward to meeting you!

Lowell Michigan Churches Global Missions TripsGlobal Missions

Ongoing!

Every year we have a variety of mission trip opportunities for youth and adults. As we step out of our comfort zones, God uses these experiences to shape us into his image, like clay in the hands of the potter. We would love for you to join us on one of our trips to Costa Rica, New Mexico, or New York. We have ongoing relationships with ministries in each of these locations, and we continue to build on them every trip, including a new “Sister Church” relationship with a church in Costa Rica. For more information on Global Missions, contact the church office.

Lowell MI 49331 Church - Ministry Local MissionsLocal Missions

Ongoing!

One of our highest priorities is “the mission at home” – right here in Lowell. God has called is to live here, so he has also called us to serve here: in our homes, schools, businesses, and every way possible. Even our church’s name, “Lowell First,” reminds us of Jesus’ instruction to be his witnesses “in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:8). The structure of his call was to serve in Jerusalem (their local community) and in Judea and Samaria (the surrounding community) and to the ends of the earth. This is why our church started Flat River Outreach Ministries, our local clothing bank and food pantry (a ministry that is now its own non-profit and includes volunteers from many local churches). The image above was taken during the downtown flood a few years ago. Our church joined with other local churches and boy scouts and community members to fill sand bags and help in the relief effort. This is part of our church’s DNA – serving our local mission!
