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



Worship services are every Sunday at 10 a.m. with Holy Communion.
Masks are optional. Everyone is welcome to attend.

The church office is open Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 9 am – 1 pm and Wednesday from 1-4 pm.

Annual Cookie Walk

Saturday, Dec. 4th
9:30 – 11:30 am

Everyone is asked to bake a batch (or two) of your favorite Christmas cookies for this annual fund-raising activity. And/or, you could also make your traditional Christmas breads and/or candies…
You still have time to dig out your favorite Christmas recipes and decide what you would like to make…….
Please plan to have your cookies (& breads, etc.) to the church by 4:30 on Friday, Dec. 3rd.
This year we are asking for you to pick up a tray or two to put your cookies on before you bring them to the church.
We also need people who are willing to set-up on Friday night and help with the sales on Saturday.
Friday night workers should plan on being to the church at 4:30.
(A light supper will be provided.)
Saturday workers need to arrive by 9:00 am.
At this time, all is a “go” as in prior years, however, we will be keeping a close watch on COVID-19 numbers to determine if changes need to be made. Please watch the Sunday bulletin announcements as well as the church’s Facebook page for any further information.

Changes will be announced in the Sunday bulletin and on the church’s Facebook page.
