Welcome to Fennville and Pearl
United Methodist Church



Our Summer Worship takes us into July and invites us to consider how we live open-heartedly in a risky world and at a contentious time. Does opening our hearts mean being more naïve or wearing rose-colored glasses in the face of hard truths? Whether we’re talking about love of God or love of neighbor or even love of country, we are invited to live into reality with a hope for kingdom values and the promise of eternity. It is not always easy to be a person of faith, but we come closer to Christ when we open our hearts.


Sunday, June 30, 2024 Psalm 130 “Unforced Errors” in the game of Life there is one problem that is hard to shake off

Sunday, July 7, 2024 2 Corinthians 12:2-10 Humility is a kind of stack-scrubber that cleanses our smelliest selves by binding us to the power of Christ

Sunday, July 14, 2024 Ephesians 1:3-14 “Moral Compass” Pilots, archaeologists, moving companies, farmers, civil engineers, surveyors, mining companies and Navy SEALs all use compasses to travel in the right direction with confidence. What kind of compass can help Christians do the same?

Sunday, July 21, 2024 “Formula for Forgiveness” Ephesians 2:11-22 Don’t worry, there’s no math involved. Just apologize, make peace and forgive others as Christ has forgiven

Sunday, July 28, 2024 “Are You Able?” Ephesians 3:14-21 Our God is a God who appears and does, not just a God who is and speaks



Vacation Bible School

July 28,29 &30th

Theme TBD




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."
