WELCOME TO LIGHTS UP NORTH!
We serve from deep within the Northern woods where the water is clean, the air is crisp, and sunsets are magnificent. Where the black bear roam through thick pines, the moose mosey past rushing waterfalls, and the deer walk along high snowbanks under the Northern Lights: Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.
The mission of Lights UP North is to share the love of God through encouragement and inspiration in practical and meaningful ways.
Behind the Name:
Lights– Jesus said, “you are the light of the world.” It is our belief that God wants people to shine as lights in various parts of the world. People go out all over the world to be missionaries, typically after God lays on their heart a specific area or region. God has called us to be lights.
UP– Upper Peninsula (of Michigan). This is the specific area/region that we believe God has called us to be a light to.
North– When we think of the word North, we think of the word above. The U.P. is North, or above the famous mighty Mackinac Bridge. When we think of going above, we think of going also beyond; to go above and beyond is to excel in some things. 2 Corinthians 8:7 says, ” Just as you excel in everything….excel in giving.” We believe it is important to invest in others- whether it be time, money, or helping out with something. So the “North” part of the name is us trying to excel and in a northern location. In this way, our goal is to let our lights shine brightly, to bless others, and in turn show the U.P. the practical love of Christ through our everyday actions.
Lights UP North strives to:
- Provide encouraging posts and devotionals.
- Educate others on health and wellness – focusing mostly on allergy awareness.
- Be a guide to inspiring Upper Peninsula of Michigan avenues.
- Participate in localized ministry outreaches.
