Bread of Life Lutheran Church

 Bread of Life is a growing church, and we welcome you into our life of worship and fellowship. As God’s people we embrace Jesus’ promise that those who come will never be hungry. We therefore strive to be a grace-filled, accepting people with a welcome to all because of God’s never ending love and faithfulness.

    At Bread of Life Lutheran Church, you’ll find jeans, suit and tie, slacks, or dress. All of them come with persons offering the warmth of welcome and community. And of course, the cross is always central. Bread of Life is a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) and the ELCA cooperating congregation with Grand Valley State University.

    We invite you to come, worship, grow, and serve with us  and join us in “Being fed, feeding others.”

Proud member of the ELCA.
