Services were started, Sunday School was held, the Ladies’ Aid was organized, property was purchased (at 521 4th Ave.), a churchwas erected, and a pastor was called. The decision to relocate was made in the fall of 1957. In 1959, a parsonage on the new property was constructed, and the church was erected in 1960 and 1961. The office wing was built in 1971.
