Welcome to Fremont Christian Church

About Us

We are Disciples of Christ, a self-governing, caring, loving and biblically based congregation in Fremont, Michigan.


As members of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), We confess that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God, and proclaim him Lord and Savior of the world. In Christ’s name and by his grace we accept our mission of witness and service to all people. We rejoice in God, maker of heaven and earth, and in God’s covenant of love which binds us to God and to one another.

Through baptism into Christ, we enter into newness of life and are made one with the whole people of God. In the communion of the Holy Spirit, we are joined together in discipleship and in obedience to Christ. At the Table of the Lord, we celebrate with thanksgiving the saving acts and presence of Christ. Within the universal church we receive the gift of ministry and the light of scripture. In the bonds of Christian faith, we yield ourselves to God that we may serve the One whose kingdom has no end. Blessing, glory, and honor be to God forever. Amen.

The purpose of our church:

  • To win people to faith in Christ as their Savior.
  • To provide a fellowship of Christians to grow in the grace and knowledge of God through Christ.
  • To work for the establishment of the Kingdom of God on Earth.

Reverend Dr. Steven A. Jumper

Rev. Jumper is from Cameron West Virginia. He was born in Tiffin OH and was brought up in a Conservative congregation where he accepted Jesus as his savior at the age of 12. After graduating from Tiffin Columban High School, he enrolled in Spartan School of Aeronautics and graduated with an Associate Degree in Aviation Maintenance Technology. He was a pilot and mechanic for over 17 years. In 1987 he received his call to enter full-time Christian ministry. He started back to school and attended John Brown University and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Christian Education. Then he continued to Lexington Theological Seminary and graduated with a Master of Divinity Degree and received his Doctor of Ministry from Southwest Bible College and Seminary in Jennings, LA. He served as a student minister in two churches while going to Seminary. He has served several churches before joining us in Fremont.

Some comments from Pastor Steven. “My gifts for ministry fall into two primary areas, teaching, and preaching. I enjoy preaching the gospel message and teaching the truth of God’s word. I want to teach people how to grow in their faith, encourage them to discover their Spiritual Gifts, and equip them to use their Spiritual gifts in the ministry of the church to fulfill the Great Commission. My special interests are mentoring in local schools, and working with computers. I enjoy building and flying radio-controlled airplanes. I have also been involved with the Soap Box Derby for 26 years."

He has been happily married to Marianne for 44 years. They have no children, but one highly pampered Cavachon, Lillie Mae.

Fremont Christian Church History

Fremont Christian Church, originally First Christian Church, was established in 1880. In 1980 we celebrated our 100-year anniversary. To find out more about our history, click here.

Fremont Christian Church is part of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in the United States and Canada grew out of two movements seeking Christian unity that sprang up almost simultaneously in western Pennsylvania and Kentucky – movements that were backlashes against the rigid denominationalism of the early 1800s. more...


The Lord’s Supper or Communion is celebrated in weekly worship. It is open to all who are followers of Jesus Christ. The practice of Holy Communion has become the central element of worship within the Disciples tradition.

Disciples’ observance of the Lord’s Supper echoes the Passover feast, when Jesus shared bread and wine with his disciples on the eve of his crucifixion. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, the living Christ is met and received in the sharing of the bread and the cup, representative of the body and blood of Jesus. The presence of the living Lord is affirmed, and he is proclaimed to be the dominant power in our lives.

For I have received of the Lord what I have also handed on to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed took a loaf of bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, “This is my body that is for you. Do this in remembrance of me. In the same way he took the cup also after supper saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me. For as often as you eat this bread, and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.

– I Corinthians 11:23-26 (NRSV)


Peter said to them,” Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ so that your sins may be forgiven; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.”

– Acts 2:38 (NRSV)

Baptism is a public act by which the church proclaims God’s grace, as revealed in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, through the use of a visible sign of God’s gracious initiative and the human individual’s response in faith.

Just as the baptism represents the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ, it symbolizes the death and burial of the old self of the repentant believer, and the joyous birth of a brand new being in Christ. Those who founded the Disciples movement taught baptism by immersion as the accepted form.

– From Word to the Church on Baptism, Commission on Theology, 1987

With other Christians we affirm that baptism is at once a divine gift and a human response. The meaning of baptism is grounded in God’s redemptive action in Christ, it incorporates the believer in the community in the body of Christ, and it anticipates life in the coming age when the powers of the old world will be overcome, and the purposes of God will triumph.

Ministries | Outreach

At Fremont Christian Church, we have a diverse Ministry and Outreach program. We give money to about 20 local organizations. There are also opportunities to give our time and talents through groups like the Rose Garden Quilters and the Christian Women Fellowship (CWF).


  • This group was organized by a group of ladies in the church and welcome all who would like to Quilt. Their mission is to work on quilts which are then donated to local charities.
  • In 2021 we made and donated 110 quilts, over 1,700 face masks and 24 dog beds.
  • We in this quilting group were lucky enough to make it to retirement which freed up our time so we could be a service to others. This is our calling. Dr. Jeremiah says, "your career is what you are paid to do, your calling is what you are made to do." And "if you ain't dead, you ain't done!” So, we aren’t done and hopefully we have a lot of years to fulfill this calling because we want to wrap as many as we can in the love and comfort of homemade quilts.
  • Here are pictures of quilts donated by the Rose Garden Quilters. The picture on the top is of 16 quilts picked up by Red Cross volunteer. The picture on the bottom is of 24 quilts delivered to Newaygo County DHHS.

  • CROP Hunger Walks are community-based walk fundraising events held in cities and towns across the United States, created to support the global mission of Church World Service, a faith-based organization transforming communities around the globe through just and sustainable responses to hunger, poverty, displacement and disaster. After a CROP Hunger Walk ends, 25% of the funds raised are returned to our community to support local hunger fighting efforts.
  • The Crop Project began in 1947 when farmers were asked to donate food and seed crops to our hungry neighbors in post-World War II Europe and Asia. The first CROP Hunger Walks took place in Bismarck, North Dakota (1969), and York, Pennsylvania (1970). Since then, CROP Hunger Walk events have been held in hundreds of communities, large and small, raising millions of dollars to eradicate hunger and poverty.
  • CROP Walk 2021 for us was very successful. Thanks to all of you we were able to take 417 pounds of food to the TruNorth food pantry.

  • Operation Christmas Child is part of Samaritan’s Purse
  • Mission Statement:

    Samaritan’s Purse is a nondenominational evangelical Christian organization providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world. Since 1970, Samaritan’s Purse has helped meet needs of people who are victims of war, poverty, natural disasters, disease, and famine with the purpose of sharing God’s love through His Son, Jesus Christ. The organization serves the Church worldwide to promote the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.

  • Samaritan’s Purse collects shoebox gifts filled with toys, school supplies, and hygiene items for children around the world. Since 1993, more than 198 million children in more than 170 countries and territories have received an Operation Christmas Child shoebox. The project delivers not only the joy of what, for many kids, is their first gift ever, but also gives them a tangible expression of God’s love.
  • CWF is starting the operation Christmas Child program for 2022 beginning August 1 and will conclude October 15. Last year we were able to send 36 boxes. How can you participate. There will be a table in the Fellowship Hall for your items. In October a boxing party will be set up to fill the boxes. Below are the age groups and a list of items needed:
    Ages: 2-4, 5-7, 8-10, 12-14
  • Items needed: Underwear, t-shirts, crayons, color books, pens, pencils, deodorant, toothbrushes, floss, or small note pads that will fit in a shoe box.
  • If you would like to contribute money for the purchase of items or the mailing see Linda Stults, CWF treasurer. Make Checks payable to CWF with Operation Christmas Child in the memo line.
  • This is a great opportunity to be involved in broader ecumenical program for those in need of the message of God.


Christian Women’s Fellowship (CWF)

All ladies who attend our church are welcome and invited to attend. We meet the first Thursday of each month. Officers are elected yearly, and preside at the monthly meetings.

Our current officers are:

  • PRESIDENT: Dawn Stroven
  • VICE PRESIDENT: (Vacant)
  • SECRETARY: Barb Mooney
  • TREASURER: Linda Stults (Dawn Stroven is also listed on our bank records)
PURPOSE: Christian women aiding in the enhancement and support of our church.

Originally known as Ladies Aid Society, this group was organized in 1948-49.

We raise money to attend to the needs of our church. Fundraisers we support:

  • One annual fundraiser is our Soup Supper which is open to the public. Soups are homemade by our members and homemade pies are also served. Proceeds from this event are for the church’s general fund.
  • Greeting cards are sold all year at a very reasonable price and these funds are deposited to CWF’s general fund.
  • Occasional Sunday events during fellowship: Sloppy Joe lunch or ice cream social
  • Prepare and serve luncheon served to public during our church yard sales.

In addition to making money, we also give.

  • We serve funeral luncheons for church members and friends that regularly attend our church, and their immediate family at a nominal cost.
  • Make hospital gifts for the pastor to deliver to those in the hospital for the first time.
  • Create Samaritan boxes
  • Support and maintain the 5 th Sunday Potlucks.

We do frequent fundraisers to raise money for church improvements, and assistance where needed within the church. A large part of our fundraising is the collection of change every Sunday during fellowship. We have a “Jingle Box” and encourage our congregation to contribute their loose “change” in this box every week. We collect anywhere from a few dollars to several dollars per week and this money is spent on many of the improvements we make.

Some improvements we’ve recently made:

  • Sanctuary painted in 2016
  • Carpeted sanctuary in 2017
  • Helped pay for purchase of pads for pews in 2018
  • Remodeled Pastor’s study
