welcome statement

At Big Rapids First United Methodist Church we welcome, affirm, and celebrate people of any age, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, race, national origin, ethnicity, faith tradition, physical and mental ability, economic condition, marital status, family configuration, or place on the theological or political spectrum.


We seek to love alike, even though we may not think alike.


We embrace our differences as gifts that enrich our mission and ministries and help us grow in faith.


This statement of inclusion and welcome is for all people, especially those who have known the pain of exclusion and discrimination in the church, in our community, or in our culture.


You are welcome here!
