Worship Service - Confirmation Sunday (6/21/2020)
Welcome to St. Michael's!
We would love to have you visit our church family! As followers of Jesus Christ, we want to be Active in service, Nurture our faith, Give all glory to God, Encourage one another, and Lead others to Jesus (A.N.G.E.L.).
We are on the crossroads of M-46 and M-15, serving not only Richville but also the three larger communities around us, Frankenmuth, Reese and Vassar. We are a congregation of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod along with our fellow “Franken Colony” churches in the area (originally Richville was named Frankenhilf).
Our worship times are listed on this page, as well as links to some of our other ministries. Feel free to stop by any time, call one of our pastors or other staff, or e-mail us with any questions at email@example.com.
Directions to St. Michael's
Misprint: Worship Service will be at 9:00 a.m. on Sunday, July 12th, not 10:30 as printed in the bulletin.
Retirement Celebration: We are planning a retirement celebration picnic lunch for Pastor Gadeken on July 26th after the outdoor service. PLEASE NOTE that the outdoor service that day will be at 10:00 AM in the park with the lunch to follow (food will be provided). Members are invited to express their thanks to the Gadekens with individual cards and gifts.
Covid-19 and hymnals: Some worshipers have expressed concerns about catching the virus from hymnals or other surfaces people have touched. An article from the New England Journal of Medicine states that the virus can only survive on cardboard for 24 hours and no more than 48 hours on metal. Therefore hymnals that are used on Sunday will be fine by Wednesday and vice versa. Also, our custodians have been very diligent about cleaning doorknobs, faucet handles and other frequently touched surfaces.
Please continue to wear masks. Yes, it’s hot and they can be uncomfortable, but doctors do recommend wearing them to limit the spread of Covid-19. Please remember that we have elderly members and others with health problems who may be sitting near you.
Installation of Dr. Eifert: Our new music director will be installed during next Sunday’s worship service (July 19th).
Voter’s Meeting immediately after worship July 19th. The only agenda item will be to extend a limited call to Larry Courson for our interim pastor. The voters already approved the interim program earlier this year.
July/August newsletters are in the mailboxes in the church foyer.
The church office will be closed on Fridays until further notice.
Watch the virtual LWML MI District Convention on Saturday, July 11th. You can see it on lwmlmichigan.org or youtube.com/LWML MI District/2020 convention.
More information is in the "Church" tab above and then "Bulletin/Newsletter".
