the church had grown to approximately thirty people and was ready to move again. The church moved into the basement of the Veteran’s building where the church grew to sixty-five people.
After what seemed to be a short stay in the Veteran’s building, Living Hope Church moved to a cornerstone on the corner of Willow Avenue and Short Street in May of 1996. Living Hope was truly blessed by this arrangement.
Approaching six years at this location, the church was becoming cramped. The congregation knew it was time to build their own building. The congregation of 100 people raised $100,000 to go towards the construction of the church building.
The Lord blessed the church with a hidden 9.46 acres right in the middle of town for a great price. Amazingly, the location for the church was cleared and the building was built within six months of the purchase.
On April 14, 2002, Living Hope Church had their first service in their newly-built building. The church has not stopped their vision of growth. With each day that passes, the vision becomes more of a reality. God is faithful!
