Music is provided by the church’s praise band, Reconciled for the first service, while organ and choir music are featured during the second service. Pastor for the church, the Rev. Jeanne Koughn preaches weekly. On a regular basis, WBET broadcasts each Sunday’s 11:00 a.m. service on its 1230 AM station. The church’s youth group is also re-gathering for fall, with senior and junior high students, who meet each Sunday evening at 5 pm. All are welcome.

During the 2014-15 school year, 99 Sturgis school children received a large plastic bag of food with a voucher for bread, milk, and eggs to take home to their families on Friday.

There are forms at the church for you to fill out to help the Sturgis Helping Hands Backpack Program. It costs $10.00 per student per week to pay for the food, and for 33 weeks of school that amounts to $330.00 for the year. Any donation that you can give will be appreciated.
