It all began with believers who lived in central Michigan but attended Resurrection Life Church in Grandville and they had a desire to bring RLC a little closer to home. They were willing to do whatever it took to bring Christ to Mid Michigan in RLC style. Our first meeting location was at a small township hall and every Thursday the little place was teeming with people who came to seek God and to learn how to live for Him.
In December of 1990, the Bible study purchased what was then the new Moose Lodge in St. Louis, and Resurrection Life Church Mid Michigan became official under the leadership of Pastor Randy & Jodie Stehouwer. Our first service was held on January 7th, 1991.
In 2012, Pastor Rick & Diane Lopez accepted the call to shepherd the flock at RLC Mid Michigan. Pastor Rick had served as the worship and youth pastor here some 13 years earlier and he had no idea he would one day return to the church where he started in full-time ministry, but it was clearly God-ordained. Since 1991, we have experienced the grace, goodness, and glory of God. As we move ahead, we know we have only just begun to experience all that God has in store for Mid Michigan.
