In the year 1935, the Old Believers of Detroit, organized, and started buiding themselves a church. times were poor, the depression was still on. but they were determined to go ahead. So, in the first week of September in 1935, these faithful men dug their first shovel of dirt for the foundation of our church. These people worked hard in building the Church. What they themselves could do, they did, what they couldn't do, they contracted. These men went around the houses and asked for donations, in othrer cities, wherever there were our Old Believers Churchs and members, they managed to get there and ask for donations. But they did managed to collect enouth money to complete the foundation. They woked hard that fall and early winter of 1935, and had the basement ready for their first service for our Christmas January 7, 1936.
