Welcome!

We’re glad you’re visiting our website! 

Ferris Church of Christ is an independent restoration “church by the side of the road” located in Vestaburg, Michigan for over 145 years. If you are interested in being a part of our church family, we welcome you to please join us Sunday mornings for Sunday School at 9:30 a.m. and Worship at 10:30 a.m.

Our mission is to encourage one another to love God with all of our heart, soul and mind and to love our neighbors as ourselves; and to reach out to people everywhere, sharing Jesus with all who will hear, immersing all who repent & respond to that message, and then disciple and equip them for service.

Our hope is that our community might be a place for you to connect, grow, serve, and experience the transforming love of Jesus Christ.

 

Jesus replied: ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ ” Matthew 22:37-39

A NOTE FROM THE SENIOR MINISTER…    November 2014
 
Do you ever stop to think that, if you are a Christian, you are a part of the Body?
Jesus took on a physical body (Hebrews 10:5) at his Incarnation. When He died for us (Romans 5:8) his physical body became part of his sacrifice. At His resurrection, his physical body was restored (John 2:19-21) And when he ascended, still in that physical body, He began the process of working through those that are in Him… the Church – His people – His children – His “Body”.
 
What does it mean that Christians are a part of the Body?
 
It means that “we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.” (Ephesians 4:15-16, ESV)
 
It means that individually and corporately, we are to follow Christ (who is the head of the body.) It means that individually and corporately, we have the help of the Holy Spirit (Romans 8:9.) And it means that we have gifts that are given to us to build a bigger, Body! (1 Corinthians 12.) God loves you and me so much and He has a plan for us… together! (1 Corinthians 12:25)
 
YOU are wanted!
 
Come be a part of the Body here at Ferris Church of Christ!
 
In His Service,
 
Josh Rude
