Organized in 1969, our church currently has a membership of approximately 300 faithful. We are located in the Martin Park community, which is also the locale of the University of Detroit-Mercy. The surrounding area is very diverse. A strong African American, middle class community exists to the north of us; in contrast to extreme blight and poverty immediately south and east of our church. Ideally, Church of the New Covenant is centrally located to provide services and support to the neighborhood families in need of assistance.
