Celebrating Texas Conference History At First Church
August 15, 2019

CLIFTON, TEX. – For more than 35 years, people have been gathering at the first Seventh-day Adventist Church in Texas, the Norse Church, to celebrate its history.

Scheduled for the second Sabbath in October, attendees enjoy a gathering that includes a worship service, beautiful music, potluck lunch and chuck wagon chefs preparing fresh cobbler on site. Horses are even available for those wanting to ride to the service. Riders meet in Keene at 6 a.m. to head to a ranch near the church. The trail ride lasts about 30 minutes.

The Norse church in Clifton is about a 90-minute drive from Keene. From Keene, find state Hwy 174 in Cleburne and take it south through Meridian. Turn right through town to Hwy 6. Turn left on Hwy 6 for about eight miles toward Clifton. Turn right on FM 2136 and travel about three miles, then turn left on CR 4155 and drive about one mile. The church is located on the left.
