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. That means that although Richville is small, our congregation is large, with a K-8 Christian School, and a Child Care from newborn through school age.
We are a member 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.
