Sturgis First United Methodist Church is a dynamic congregation committed to Make and Grow Disciples of Jesus Christ for the Transformation of the World! We seek to ignite Christ-centered community through excellent traditional and contemporary worship, small group discipleship, and compassionate mission.
Radiant Life was launched in 1944, by two families who moved from Coldwater to Sturgis, who had a vision for a Wesleyan Methodist Church to be formed in the community of Sturgis. The first services were held in February 1945, in a store building, under the name Sturgis Wesleyan Methodist Church and had twenty-four people in attendance.
In 1950, as the church continued to grow and reach more people, the church stepped out in faith and purchased a larger lot on the corner of N. Nottawa and McKee St for a new church building. The church also experienced a name change to Sturgis Wesleyan Church.
Growth continued steadily. In the mid 1980s, plans were created to relocate the church to a piece of property purchased on N. Nottawa. On January 1989, the first services were held in the new church building.
In 2016, Sturgis Wesleyan Church once again went through a name change and changed its name to Radiant Life Church. The church continues to grow, see people take their next step in baptism and proclaim their faith in Jesus!
