Diamond Centennial Anniversary Gala


March 25, 2023
4:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
Access Church Of God In Christ
26510 Schoenherr Road | Warren, MI 48089

Who could imagine in 1923, when Access Church opened its doors, that 100 years later, it would evolve into a beacon of hope for thousands of Metro Detroit youth, individuals, and families to improve their well-being and quality of life? Access Church’s 100th Anniversary is a huge milestone.

Many places of worship have come and gone within that timeframe, several in the recent pandemic. Yet, Access Church remains a vital community pillar committed to offering life-changing programs and worship services. Our church campus has become a spiritual refuge for those in the area. During this challenging time, the world needs to have hope – both spiritually and naturally. Our mission is to spread the gospel; however, our vision is to meet the real needs of those who strive to have a quality life.

On Saturday, March 25, 2023, from 4:30-7:30 p.m., Access Church will host its “Diamond Centennial Anniversary Gala” at its new campus in Warren, Michigan. The evening of celebration will include an elegant Mix & Mingle, strolling hors d’oeuvres, a silent auction, and live violinist.
