OUR HISTORY

ONE CHURCH, TWO LOCATIONS

  1. In 2006, Pastor Tim Richmond, already pastoring in Clinton, MI, felt called to start a church in the Monroe, MI area. 
  2. In 2006, Pastor Richmond, along with a few founding members, began meeting in the Dundee Senior Center in Dundee, MI.
  3. In 2009, Solid Rock Church took ownership of the building at 77 Wadworth, formerly Missionary Baptist Church, in Monroe, MI.
  4. On June 7th, 2009, Solid Rock Church held their first service in Monroe, MI and became one church with two locations, Clinton and Monroe, with Pastor Tim Richmond overseeing both locations. 
  5. On March 20th, 2019, Reverend Kent Ritter was appointed as Lead Pastor at Solid Rock Church of Monroe. Pastor Timothy Richmond continues to pastor the church in Clinton, MI and presides as honorary Bishop of the Solid Rock Church of Monroe, now two churches reaching their respective communities for Jesus Christ.
