Mission Statement

Our mission is to serve as ambassadors of Christ through our actions, words, and deeds.

Our church: its beginnings and continued growth

The history of our congregation goes back to the year 1890, when Rev. Sorde, the Norwegian pastor from Ishpeming, came to Pequaming twice a month, holding meetings in the various homes, and caring for the spiritual needs of the people in those brief visits. > Read more about our history

Dear Members of United Lutheran,

In continuing to follow both medical and state official guidance, United Lutheran Church will continue to be closed and the suspension of all church activities remains in effect until directed otherwise.  This means we will not be holding in person services for Holy Week and Easter Sunday.

I will continue to have alternative ministry opportunities via online during this suspension.  If you have any questions please contact the church office.  I would like to also remind everyone that though we are not meeting in person, it is still important the Church still receive offerings which help support the ministry that is still occurring here.  If you are not already contributing via automatic withdrawal, I would encourage you to consider it.  However, if you are not wanting to do automatic withdrawal, you can send your offering in via mail or you can contact the pastor to arrange a drop off time at the church.

I recognize we find ourselves in a sorrowful and frustrating time due to the many inconveniences occurring in our life.  As your pastor I continue to do my best to serve this community during these difficult times.  May God continue to love and guide us through these difficult times.

Pastor John A. Ansell
