Who We Are
Family of Christ began as a mission of the Michigan District – LCMS in 2005 with four families from Messiah Lutheran Church. This sister-church had prayed for God to plant a new church on the northwest side of Grand Rapids for over 10 years. Weekly worship was launched during Holy Week of 2006 in the cafeteria of Comstock Park High School where the church worshipped for over two years. Small group Bible studies which meet in the homes and apartments of members have been a ministry focus since the church started. Home fellowships have helped the church grow in faith and love for others. In the summer of 2008, Family of Christ moved into a commercial building next to the church property where the church will build its first facility. God has faithfully provided for this mission church and promises to guide her into a blessed future! With God’s blessing, Family of Christ will celebrate on July 10, 2011 in the new facility – five years after it launched its first weekly worship service, and continue to be a mission congregation serving the Alpine Township/Comstock Park area of northwest Grand Rapids.
