Update on Services
Coronavirus (COVID-19) Response

Dear WOL Family,


During this Coronavirus challenge, it's our desire to Trust God & Act Wisely, doing what's best for the wellbeing of you, our church family, as well as our overall community.


Therefore, in response to the request by the Governor's office, we have made the decision to cancel all Sunday services, as well as weekday activities and programs until further notice. th    Beyond that we will monitor the situation on a week-by-week basis. We will do our best to keep you informed with further updates as we proceed. 


During this time we will provide a modified Sunday Worship Service online each Sunday at 10:45 am.  You can join us live at 10:45 am via our YouTube channel.  Search Word Of Life Baptist Church.  Each service will remain available for on-demand viewing afterward.  Offering gifts may be dropped off, mailed or given through our new online giving option.  


Church, let's both Trust God & Act Wisely.  This is a time not to panic. Let's remember that our ministry at WOL is far more than just a Sunday service.  This is an opportunity for us to live out our L3 L.I.F.E and be the Church to one another as we reach out to those around us, checking in on those most at risk to this virus. 


Although the church facility will not be open during this time for gatherings, our wonderful church staff will be in the office to help with any calls or needs you may have.  Our overall ministry continues on.


May we all remain in prayer for our community, our medical response teams, our  governmental officials and all those impacted by this unique situation.

Blessings On You,

Pastor Scott

    Common Questions:

    When Should I Arrive?


    If you are planning to visit for the first time you will want to arrive about 15 minutes early. This will give you time to stop by our Welcome Center, ask questions, find where you need to go, and settle in before things get started. Families bringing children should plan more time to drop their children off at the nursery or their classroom.


    Word of Life's Morning Worship Service is at 10:45 AM but we hope you will come as a family at 9:00 AM, where we have something to offer each member of the family. There is nursery for children infant-PreK, Kindergarten Class, Life Lesson Classes for 1st-5th grade, Jr. & Sr High Classes, College & Career Class and a variety of Adult Bible Fellowship (ABF) Classes.


    Coffee Fellowship Time is at 10:15 AM and it is a great place to connect with other individuals and build friendships.


    The 10:45 AM Worship Service also offers nursery, as well as KW2 (Kids Worship Too), an engaging children's ministry for ages 1st-5th grade.


    What Should I Wear?


    In our services you will find people dressed in everything from jeans and a t-shirt to a coat and tie - so come in whatever makes you comfortable.


    What Is the Style of Music?


    It is our intent to praise God through song. With that in mind our worship team leads our Sunday service with a blend of both traditional hymns and contemporary worship songs.


    Who is Your Pastor?


    Word of Life is an Elder led church and our Board of Elders lead as we seek God's plan for us to reach the community of Alpena and its surrounding areas. Our Lead Pastor Elder is Rev. Scott A. Joy.


    Are Children Allowed in The Service/What is Offered For My Kids?


    Children of all ages are welcome to stay with their parents during the service. However, we do have nursery care and classes available for children of all ages during the 9:00 AM and 10:45 AM ministry hours.
