ALBUQUERQUE – The Albuquerque La Roca Spanish Seventh-day Adventist Church celebrated the grand opening of its new facility on May 19. The La Roca church recently purchased a fully furnished former Baptist church in the North Valley community in Albuquerque. Over 100 people were in attendance for the celebration and were happy to be accompanied by Texico Conference President Lee-Roy Chacon, who took this special opportunity to ordain church elders and deacons.
“I really enjoyed listening to how God has led this church and am very happy to see how enthusiastic the members are to start spreading the gospel in their new community,” said Chacon.
Over the past years, the La Roca congregation had rented various places for worship and were eager to find a new church home. “We are very happy for La Roca,” said Elder Chacon. “Praise God for this new place of worship and pray for continued blessings over this new facility and congregation!”
