As everyone is aware, our country is in a state of emergency due to Covoid-19 (coronavirus). In order to protect our members and guarantee the safety of our community, the Pastor, Deacons and Trustees made a decision to close the church at least until April 13, 2020 in accordance with the Governor's orders. Our phones will be answered remotely so if you need to contact us, please call 313 961-0920 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Take heart, we are the Lord's prized possession and He will bring us through this. When He does we will have a great testimony. May the Lord bless you and give you His peace.
