“Do not fear for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strength you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10
During times of fear and uncertainty, it is more important than ever for Christians to meet together for mutual encouragement and strengthening in God’s Word. Out of concern for our members and public health, Spirit of Life will be hosting services online only for the next three weeks. Because of this decision, we will do our best to continue to meet together via the internet live streaming and our online facebook community.
We will continue to update this page with resources for you to worship and have devotional time at home.
Please click the boxes below to grab worship folders, sign in, and continue to give while you are away from the physical building.
If you have individual pastoral needs please call pastor at 616-295-0021 and he will arrange to meet with you privately.
Below are some recommendations for how to stay safe during this time.
(Recommendations from the MI Dept. of Health can be found here.)

Recommendations from WELS.net:
As we find ourselves in uncertain times, with news of the spread of COVID-19 changing constantly, it’s important to remember where Christians find their faith, hope, and strength. WELS has produced a bulletin insert with a prayer and encouragement for our members to remain faithful and trust in the Lord to make all things work for our good. You can download and print the insert for use in your congregation or school.
It is also wise to remember, especially now, to exercise best practices when it comes to hygiene to help prevent the spread of the virus, including staying home when ill or at risk. We pray our congregations can continue worshiping together, seeking refuge in God’s Word and encouragement from fellow believers.
The CDC has provided some tips to help prevent the spread of COVID-19:
Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
Stay home when you are sick.
Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
