Learn about Grace... God's grace here in Muskegon...News!

Welcome!

Whether you are new to the area, just passing through or in need of a new church home... we welcome you to join us each Sunday at 9:00 am.

We are located in Fruitport Township, just minutes from the Lakes Mall area. Click here to contact us.

Bible Based

We believe that the Bible is fully sufficient, clearly teaching people all they need to know to get to heaven. It makes them “wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus” (2 Timothy 3:15), and it equips them for “every good work” (2 Timothy 3:17).

Our Family

We pray you feel a part of our church family from your very first visit!

Our family consists of a growing representation of our area - from young and established familes to single and retired members.

We look forward to meeting you soon!

What's New in the WELS

This feed was created by mixing existing feeds from various sources.
  • Listen as Pastor David Witte reads from Hebrews 12:1-17. 20090305db.mp3 Length:  3 minutes, 42 seconds Narrator:  Pastor David Witte

  • Hebrews 12:1-17 (NIV84)Hebrews 12God Disciplines His Sons 1Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. 2Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart. 4In your struggle against sin, you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood. 5And you have forgotten that word of encouragement that addresses you as sons:    "My son, do not make light of the Lord's discipline,       and do not lose heart when he rebukes you,  6because the Lord disciplines those he loves,       and he punishes everyone he accepts as a son."[a] 7Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as sons. For what son is not disciplined by his father? 8If you are not disciplined (and everyone undergoes discipline), then you are illegitimate children and not true sons. 9Moreover, we have all had human fathers who disciplined us and we respected them for it. How much more should we submit to the Father of our spirits and live! 10Our fathers disciplined us for a little while as they thought best; but God disciplines us for our good, that we may share in his holiness. 11No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it. 12Therefore, strengthen your feeble arms and weak knees. 13"Make level paths for your feet,"[b] so that the lame may not be disabled, but rather healed.Warning Against Refusing God 14Make every effort to live in peace with all men and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord. 15See to it that no one misses the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many. 16See that no one is sexually immoral, or is godless like Esau, who for a single meal sold his inheritance rights as the oldest son. 17Afterward, as you know, when he wanted to inherit this blessing, he was rejected. He could bring about no change of mind, though he sought the blessing with tears.Footnotes:Hebrews 12:6 Prov. 3:11,12Hebrews 12:13 Prov. 4:26Scripture taken from the HOLY BIBLE, NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION®.

Questions & Answers

  • Can a WELS member participate in any part of an LCMS church? Thank you! Answer:  I take it that when you ask about participating in an “LCMS church,” you have in mind a worship service in an LCMS church.  Building on that assumption, I can be present at such a worship service, but I will refrain from doing what I do in a worship service in a church of our fellowship:  worshiping and communing.  Certainly, I will be respectful of those who are worshiping and seek not to be a distraction to them.Answered by James Pope, professor at Martin Luther College, New Ulm, Minn. Pope is a contributing editor to Forward in Christ magazine. He writes the monthly “Light for our path” question and answer column. 

  • As a WELS member is there a religious problem in joining the American Legion? Thank you! Answer:  The American Legion’s Web site explains that it “was chartered by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization.”  While the essential character of the organization is not religious in nature, still there can be religious elements in the local post, such as prayers, a chaplain and burial rites.  It would be worth your while to speak to individuals at the local post to find out to what extent there are religious elements at that level.  Speaking to your pastor would also be helpful.  Certainly if Lutheran Christians were to join an organization like this, they would, as in other settings of life, refrain from prayers and religious activities if there is not unity of faith (Romans 16:17).Answered by James Pope, professor at Martin Luther College, New Ulm, Minn. Pope is a contributing editor to Forward in Christ magazine. He writes the monthly “Light for our path” question and answer column.
