"The Lord Has Done Great Things For Us; We Are Glad." Psalm 126:3

Today was an exciting day in the life of our church. We held our first service in our new building! After years of prayer and planning, we held a service of Doxology today. We praised God for His holiness, omniscience, omnipotence, omnipresence and faithfulness. The following is photo documentation of the physical changes that have been taking place over the past 2+ years.

Previous Sanctuary: This building is 98 years old.

For our last service in the previous building, we celebrated our heritage. We had a moving service where people told of their memories of that building. Our pastor spoke out of Psalm 16 about our beautiful heritage. Then today, we continued to praise God for the great things He has done for us.

How exciting it is to see growth to the point where you outgrow a building. Your church is truly blessed! The new building looks beautiful and flows with the look of the old one.
