Welcome to Fennville and Pearl
United Methodist Churches!

LENT 2023

Our journey with Jesus into the year 2023 brings us toward many crossroads! Crossroads represent for each of us moments of decisions, moments when we have had to decide between paths. For each Sunday in Lent we will focus on the crossroads that Jesus had to face as well as reflect on the crossroads of our life.





Why do Church?
In a very real sense, the church year begins anew after summer break. Vacations are over! School is back in session and church programming resumes! It seems appropriate; therefore, that this is a perfect time for us to pray together why is it so important that we gather together as a church! “Why do we do church, anyway?”


If you are looking for a small country church, please join us for worship on Sundays @ 9:30  at Pearl United Methodist Church in historic Pearl.  Or if you are looking for a church that provides educational opportunities, please join us for Sunday worship @11:00 At Fennville UMC. If you have young children, we have a nursery available for your use during the service.  Preschool through 1st grade children will experience a Children's Sermon during the service and then be excused to Sunday school.  We have a Youth Ministry for middle school and high school age students.  

When you come through the doors you will find very friendly, smiling, caring and loving people that will welcome you and help you find your way.  If you have any questions or just want to talk, I am available any time.  Just give me a call through the church office.  

In Christ,

Rev. Bob Lynch


So as we look for a way to move from our own cultural pagan ways to experience the true presence of God and to invite others to “Do Church together” this fall can become an exciting way to all of us to experience the presence of God and understand “Why We Do Church!” Below are more reasons why we should do church!


It Is What Jesus Did

Luke 14:6 says, "Jesus went back to Nazareth, where he'd been brought up and as usual he went to the meeting place on the Sabbath."

It Is a Good Habit

Hebrews 10:25 says, "Some people have gotten out of the habit of meeting for worship. But we must not do that. We should keep on encouraging each other, especially since you know that the day of the Lord's coming is getting closer."

It Is a Positive Example

Going to church is a positive example. When you go each Sunday, you're setting an example. You are setting an example that other people notice

It Is Important for Fellowship

Look again at what the Bible says, "Some have gotten out of the habit. We should not do that. We should keep on encouraging each other." The church is an encouraging place. We all need encouragement. Life is hard. Life is difficult.

It Is Essential for Growth

It is absolutely essential for spiritual growth to regularly attend church. I have this phrase, "The service you miss is the service you need."
