Detroit Church launching in Midtown to ‘Make All Things New’

Detroit Church, a new non-denominational church startup hosting its first service at noon on Sunday, April 10, is seeking to awaken Detroit as a cultural epicenter for people to experience church in a new way.

The church’s services will be at Spain Elementary Middle School, 3700 Beaubien Street, a school that recently made headlines after being featured on the Ellen Degeneres show.

Detroit Church’s Founder and Lead Pastor Sonny Smith says he wants the new church to bring together people from diverse backgrounds, cultures, socioeconomic status and generations as one.

“This really is the greatest adventure of all time,” said Smith. “That’s why Detroit Church exists. We aren’t interested in just filling a building or occupying space, but engaging in the life and culture of the city, impacting lives, and helping to be a bridge builder between old Detroit and new Detroit to make One Detroit.”
