‘My ears had heard of you
    but now my eyes have seen you.’

(Job 42:5)

On Thursday evening, our dear friend Katrina Fischer finished her race and entered into the presence of the Master.

Selfless and dedicated, it is not an exaggeration to say that the loss of Katrina is a blow to the entire Life Church family.

Because of what Jesus had done in her own life, Katrina was extremely generous with her time, her talents, and her treasures.

Every guest who entered our Saginaw and Bay City Campuses were touched by Katrina’s life: she literally served people every single Sunday.

We are united in praying for her husband Nick, her daughter Trinity and son Eli, as well as extended family and her many friends.


At Saginaw Campus only, our current God With Us teaching series will pause this Sunday at 10am and 11:30am as Pastor Jon shares a special message about Hope in Loss and Death.

* There will be NO Monday Night Worship Experience this week.

Saying Farewell

Katrina’s Viewing will be this Monday, 2pm - 8pm at Life Church’s Saginaw Campus, located at 5200 Tittabawassee Road in Kochville Township.

A Celebration of Katrina’s Life will be this Tuesday, 11am at Life Church’s Saginaw Campus.

We encourage you to share a financial gift above and beyond your regular giving to this GoFund Me Page set up to assist Katrina’s family during this difficult time.


2 Cor 5, TPT

‘We are convinced that even if these bodies we live in are folded up at death like tents, we will still have a God-built home that no human hands have built, which will last forever in the heavenly realm.

We inwardly sigh as we live in these physical “tents,” longing to put on a new body for our life in heaven, in the belief that once we put on our new “clothing” we won’t find ourselves “naked.” 

So, while living in this “tent,” we groan under its burden, not because we want to die but because we want these new bodies. We crave for all that is mortal to be swallowed up by eternal life. 

And this is no empty hope, for God himself is the one who has prepared us for this wonderful destiny. And to confirm this promise, he has given us the Holy Spirit, like an engagement ring, as a guarantee.

That’s why we’re always full of courage. Even while we’re at home in the body, we’re homesick to be with the Master— for we live by faith, not by what we see with our eyes. 

We live with a joyful confidence, yet at the same time we take delight in the thought of leaving our bodies behind to be at home with the Lord. 

So whether we live or die we make it our life’s passion to live our lives pleasing the Master.’
