This past Monday, the City Council approved the church’s permit to locate at 2655 Lapeer Road.  The site was the former home of the Santa Fe Authentic Mexican Restaurant.  The 100 member congregation plans to convert the 5,046 square foot building into their own permanent meeting place.  The church currently gathers in rented space at the Concorde Inn, located in the City of Rochester Hills.

Renovations to the building will consist of general repairs and cosmetic changes.  Their plan is to open for services later in the Spring.  Pastor William Bell, Jr. has indicated that the church is eager to become part of the community.

We’re very pleased that they chose to grow in Auburn Hills.
