A new LGBT-affirming church, Affirming Love Ministries, is coming to the Metro-Detroit and Ypsilanti/Ann Arbor areas. The diverse congregation is a non-denominational Christian ministry that believes in “the radical inclusivity of Jesus Christ.”
The Detroit location is at 9550 Oakland Ave., Detroit. Services are at 12:30 p.m. on Sunday. Bible Study is at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday evenings.
The church is also expanding “the love of God through fellowship, praise and worship” into Ypsilanti and Ann Arbor. The ministry will present their “Outpouring” service from 1 to 3 p.m. on Saturday, March 15 at Eastern Michigan University in Ypsilanti. If the community supports the Ypsilanti service, Affirming Love Ministries will hold their special service at EMU every first Saturday.
