Since 2013, Bloomfield Christian School has shared a portion of the building and property of Bloomfield Hills Baptist Church on the west side of Telegraph, north of Long Lake Road. Bloomfielkd Township Director of Planning, Building and Ordinance Patti Voelker said the property does abut residential properties, and at the township's planning commission meeting on May 19, the school agreed to a provision that there would be no games before 8 a.m. on school days nor before 9 a.m. on Saturdays or Sundays, and there would be an 8 p.m. stop on all days.
