The Newest Church in the Texico Conference
Ruidoso, N. Mex. » The new Ruidoso Downs church passed the building inspector’s Friday visit, just in time for the new district pastor, Chuck Workman, to preach his first sermon on Sabbath morning. For the first service in the church, Nancy Rockey helped with both the children’s story and the Sabbath School lesson. The kindergarten children also joined the celebration by doing a presentation.
Many present and past members, as well as previous pastors, spent the past six years working and sacrificing for this special day when they could officially worship in the new sanctuary. Head elder Manuel Moya invited the entire church over to his house for a celebratory potluck following the service.
Now that the new church is built, the next project will be to convert the old church into a fellowship hall, where the members can socialize and gather for additional meetings and events.
