Ministering to Detroit’s Eastside Since 1864
The beginnings of our church trail back to 1862 when Karl and Emilie Bock migrated from Germany to Detroit. The Bocks, who were zealous witness for their Lord, established fellowship with other German immigrants who were Baptist. On June 23, 1864, the group of nine believers was formally organized as a church. The early members met in homes until 1870 when a chapel was built at St. Aubin and Mullett. The church was known as the First Regular German Baptist Church of Detroit. Significant activities during the early years included tract distribution as a regular Sunday afternoon pastime, missionary work of students on the west side during summer vacation and the formation of a Women's Missionary Society.

Made Perfect, But Being Sanctified
Verse for the Week
1 Corinthians 10:13
No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.
Every summer Wednesday evening, from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m., children from age three (potty trained) through sixth grade will learn Godly character using Bible stories, observations of God’s creatures in nature, and personal application during craft time.
Each week's lesson will focus on a different character quality, for example, creativity, gratefulness, attentiveness, and so forth. In addition, older students will act out a Bible story and share a brief gym or outdoor time.
Teens are invited to the concurrent youth activity. There is no charge for Character Club. Please direct any questions to Carol Hackleman.
