At Evangel, we strive to be disciples of Jesus. We believe he died for us on the cross. We also believe that he has come to give us life to the full.

We’re trying to figure out what it means to follow him in all of his ways. What does it mean to love our neighbors as ourselves? What does it mean to love our enemies and pray for them?

Come along on this journey with us! I invite you to one of our Sunday services. We have programming from nursery through high school, and classes and discussion groups for adults.

I’d love to have you as part of the Evangel community.

~ Levi Matteson, Lead Pastor

Next Steps…

Take a look around and you’ll see that there’s a lot going on at Evangel. People from all over the Copper Country—Houghton, Hancock, Calumet, Chassell, Lake Linden, Michigan Tech, and Finlandia University—gather at Evangel. We are purposeful about community. Our church programs—children, youth, mothers of preschoolers, women, men, college, Chinese, Korean, internationals, and many others—are designed with you in mind. We want to meet you where you are, and we desire to respectfully, graciously, and patiently help you process the good news of Jesus that really changes lives. Whoever you are, wherever you’re from, we welcome you.

The community is welcome to bring elementary middle school kids to check out WillyGoat Playground. Learn how to get your membership access for weekly sessions.

A Copper Country day can start out unseasonably warm with sun shining on your face, but then an hour later, Winter Storm Warning! The temperature drops, and damp Lake Superior air permeates every layer of clothing. The cold weakens your vehicle’s battery, and if you can make it past the snow berm at the end of your driveway, blinding snow and ice make the roads impassable. What do you do? You survive!
In this series, we’ll look at the warnings and survival necessities found in First Peter. Join us Sundays at 9:30 or 11 a.m.



Purposeful About Community

Our prayer is that you'll find our church to be a safe and inviting place where you can share your story and move with us toward Jesus, regardless of your background.
