Our church began as Lake Pointe Community Chapel, holding Sunday morning services at Farrand Elementary School in the subdivision known as Lake Pointe Village, on the north side of Plymouth, during the months of May and June of 1968. Services were suspended during the summer months of that year, but resumed at Farrand in September. In addition, Sunday evening services and prayer meetings were started in various homes. September also brought Howard and Leone Bosworth to Lake Pointe as full-time workers. The ministry grew, and in January of 1969, the current property on Schoolcraft Road was purchased and the building started with the assistance of a ministry named Christian Expansion. The building was completed and occupied in July 1969 with the official dedication held in November of that year.
Ross and Lillian Rainey and family moved here in July of 1970, and Ross began a period of full-time service that extended to December 1985. Ross then left to become a traveling itinerate speaker. During an interim period from 1985 to 1988, modifications were made to the building structure, and elders and deacons took responsibility of all ministries.
In August of 1988 Ken and Carol Belch and family moved here to begin a fruitful period of service that extended for 13 years. From January 1993 through August 2001, Mike and Michelle Sacco joined the Lake Pointe church family in full-time service with youth ministry. Ken later moved to a pastorate in Belleville, MI, and Mike became a senior pastor in New Hampshire.
During these years, 13 acres of land was acquired at the corner of Beck Road and Warren Road in Canton for possible future expansion of ministries. In December of 2001, Lake Pointe welcomed Dean and Crystal Johnson and their family to serve in the pastoral work at the church.
Over the years, many ministries – such as community outreaches, MOPS, AWANA, small groups, and missions trips – have been established and become a blessing to those involved. By faith, Lake Pointe Bible Church is moving ahead, reaching and building people into disciples of Jesus Christ, for the glory of God.
