      The Lutheran Witness, Volume 36, No. 1; January 9, 1917; St. Louis, Missouri
      Church News, Detroit Letter.
      On Sunday afternoon, Aug 26, Redeemer Ev. Lutheran Church, Rev. Albert T. Tong, pastor, laid the corner-stone of their new house of worship on corner Marquette Avenue und 15th Street. It was a bright and beautiful day, and a large number of Lutherans of the city came to join Redeemer Congregation in the services. As the foundation, the floor, and a part of the walls were completed, the first part of the service was held on the floor of the church. Rev. C. H. Ruesskamp, pastor of St. Mark’s, read the collect and the Scripture-lesson. Rev. Theo. H. Schroedel, pastor of Mount Olive Lutheran Church, a daughter congregation of Redeemer and St. Andrew’s, preached the sermon. The history of the congregation was then read by the pastor of the church, after which the entire congregation proceeded to the corner of the church, where the corner-stone was laid by Pastor Tong, Pastors Ruesskamp, Tresselt, and Nelson assisting.
      The new church-building is located four blocks away from the old house of worship, on a much more desirable corner and in a better neighborhood. It is hoped that it will be ready for occupancy by the first of next year. The cost of the building will be apporximately $30,000. Services are at present still held in the old church-building. This building was sold about a year ago, and is now being rented by Redeemer Church from the society to which it was sold.
      Redeemer Church has had a varied and, in its earlier years, a somewhat stormy history. It was organized April 11, 1904, by a number of Lutherans, most of whom formerly were members of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, and who remained faithful to our Synod when the majority of that congregation joined the General Council. That Redeemer Church was brought into existence and passed through its first years safely was in large measure due to the whole-hearted support and untiring efforts of Pastors G. Claus, F. Tresselt, F. W. C. Jesse, and J. A. Detzer. Rev. Geo. Mennen was the firts pastor of this small struggling congregation. Since 1909 the present pastor, Rev. Albert T. Tong, has been in charge of the congregation. Under his faithful pastorate the congregation became self-supporting, and greatly increased in membership. The members of the church and their pastor confidently hope that the new house of worship and its favorable location will greatly add to the possibilities of further growth. May God hear their prayers! Detroit, Mich. Theo. H. Schroedel.

      The Lutheran Witness, Volume 37
      p. 300
      Detroit Letter
      On Sunday, August 11, Redeemer Congregation (Albert T. Tong, pastor) dedicated its new house of worship to the service of the Lord.
      After a brief valedictory service in the basement of the church, where the congregation had been worshipping several months, the assemblage marched to the main entrance, where the formal opening exercises took place. Thence it proceeded to the main auditorium, where the main dedicatory service took place, the Rev. William H. Dale, of Pittsburgh, delivering the sermon. Rev. F. Tresselt of Detroit preached in the afternoon, and Rev. E. C. Fackler, aslo of this city, in the evening.
      The building is stately in appearnace, constructed along more modern lines, and is set off in a beautiful multicolor oriental face brick. The greater beauty, however, is to be found in its interior, with its deep, imposing chancel, its beautiful octagonal ceiling and its rich and artistic furnature and furnishings. A full basement under the main auditorium is modernly equiped for Sunday-school as well as social purposes. The heating plant is apart from the main building.
      On Monday evening of dedication week, Rev. Dale, our Lake Erie Conference District visitor, conducted a very helpful visitation.
      On Tuesday evening a Young People’s decicatory service was held. Rev. Herbert Plehn, our camp pastor at Camp Custer, Mich., was the special speaker. The collection was used for Army and Navy work.
      Those acquainted with the history of Redeemer Church, especially in its early days, will agree that the Lord has been with it and has wonderfully blessed the feeble efforts of its pators and people. God has done great things for use, whereof we are glad. [25]
