Dear Members in Christ: 

It’s so nice to finally have some nice warm days early just to remind us of what’s to come. During the 1st half of the month we had Pastor Perry Fruhling from Cedar Rapids Iowa, and JoAnn Gallagher from Alpena here to do some training with the council and the call committee. Pastor Fruhling is the 2nd in command of the LCMC after Mike Bradley. This training was done with no expense to the church. 

At the end of the month, we held our annual fish fry. (Last year we had to cancel due to COVID just getting started.) We had a drive thru only and had planned on serving 400 dinners. We ended up serving 410. It was scheduled to be held from 4 until 7 pm and in the 1st hour we sold 256 dinners and by 6:30 we were out of food and had a few fried fish left. This worked out well because about the time that we ran out, we didn’t have anymore people coming through the line. 

I’d like to thank all the people that helped put the fish fry on and also to all of the ladies that brought cookies in for the desserts that went out in each dinner. We had a lot of compliments on how good the meals were and how efficient it ran. I think the longest anyone had to wait in line was 5 minutes or less as we had to wait for fish to be fried. People also told us that we gave them a lot of food in the dinners. We had a net profit of over $4200 for the Men’s Club account. 

Also, before the fish fry started on Friday we had to call everyone that was at the 9 am service on the previ-ous Sunday and let them know that a member had tested positive for COVID. That is why we write down who attends church at every service we have just in case something like this would happen. A lot of people we called said that they had had their shots which was a relief. 

I would also like to remind everyone that if you come down with COVID and were in church, call us and let us know as much information as possible so we can make a good decision on whether or not to have church or cancel for a week. 

Currently we plan on having all of the services that are on the schedule this Holy Week (Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter).

On behalf of the entire congregation here at Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church in Reese, Michigan we want to take this opportunity to thank you for visiting our website. We are a church that believes in the life changing power of Jesus Christ, and do our best to share His love both at church and in our community, we are privileged to serve.


If you are looking for a “perfect church,” then I encourage you to click away quickly because we’re not that church, yet we are doing our best to become more like our Lord and Savior every single day. Sometimes we fail, but we believe in learning from those failures and moving forward in faith and victory!


We want to encourage you to take a look at the various links on our site and become acquainted with us, and then join us for worship services! 


We like to call our website our “Online Visitor’s Packet” because it’s such a great way for prospective guests to see what we’re all about before actually walking through the doors!


Lives are being changed here at Christ Lutheran Church, and it’s to the honor and glory of Jesus Christ! We are all different, and while we have distinctive needs and situations in our lives, we believe He is more than up to the task of meeting those needs!


If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us through our online contact information, or give us a call at the church at 989-868-3281 and we will do our best to answer your question(s)!


I want to encourage you to put the Lord first in your life and see what God can do through you! Matthew 6:33 “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” 

May you have a blessed pilgrimage with Christ serving His creation.
