The Christian fellowship of believers known as Firm Foundation Ministries of Centreville, Michigan first met for worship in October of 1996. The church was under the leadership of pastor Jay Ulrich who remained as pastor until March 28, 2004. Now the church is under the leadership of Pastor Don M. Smith.
The First Meeting
The first meeting for church service was held at the FOP lodge with 47 people attending. Attendance soon doubled, mandating a move to a larger facility. This search lead FFM to a cooperative rental agreement with Centreville Seventh Day Adventist until October of 2006. This move allowed for further growth and expansion of praise and worship services, expanded Sunday school classes, special events, guest speakers, and fellowship meals.
The Lord has continued to bless FFM with growth and actions as we were able to move into our own permanent FFM worship and education center in October of 2006. This facility is located at the east edge of Centreville, Michigan on ten acres of land, next to the Amish Table restaurant on route 86. Due to an over abundance of young families, we quickly outgrew our nurseries and needed additional room for Children's church. We were able to purchase and install four modular buildings which we began using for Sunday School, Children's church and our Youth Group in October of 2008. This allowed us to use the old youth room for a larger nursery. We continue to make room for more as many are drawn to each service to feel the presence of the Lord.
