Denton First Church Moves to New Location
February 28, 2019

PILOT POINT, TEX. – The Denton First Seventh-day Adventist Church held its first worship service at its new location in in Pilot Point, Tex. on Sabbath, Oct. 6, 2018.

Having spent the past 75 years in Denton, building committee members started looking for a new location almost four years ago when they were starting to outgrow the original Denton facility.

Committee members toured the Pilot Point facility years ago, but the asking price was well above their budget. Needing a larger facility, the congregation moved to a leased location while they continued to look for a facility.

Miraculously, the Pilot Point property was still for sale four years later and reduced to within budget. After much prayer, the Denton First church was able to purchase the property.

“Denton First church members feel blessed,” stated Derek Lazarus, Denton First church pastor. “It once again reminds us of God’s perfect timing for His people and His work.”

The official opening and dedication service were commemorated on Sabbath, Oct. 27, 2018, with Carlos Craig, Texas Conference president, delivering the message.

To celebrate the vast cultural diversity, Denton First church members held an international flag procession at the beginning of the service and an international potluck afterward.

Since relocating, three new families from the community have begun attending and are becoming part of the Denton First church family.
