Family at Home

Staying Connected

It is our mission to keep all members of First connected to their church family and to share Christ’s love. First has a dedicated ministry designed to stay-in-touch with members of our congregation who have difficulty getting out; many whom are seniors, and would enjoy visits once a month, phone calls, and cards.

If you, or someone you know of, would be interested in being a phone caller, we welcome their involvement.

New “Family At Home” members are always welcome. Please contact Harold Ludema at 616-531-9236 or email
