Spokane’s East Central Community Company Pays Their Debt
Sabbath evening, Dec. 14, 2002, was no ordinary evening for the members of the East Central Community Company because they paid their debt.
Wayne Searson, Upper Columbia Conference corporation director, commended the congregation for putting fourth their effort and dedication to pay back a debt owed to the Conference. He encouraged the members to keep up the good work. Jon Corder, conference treasurer, was present to accept the last payment of their indebtedness, given to him by David Tschoepe, church treasurer. Along with a warm handshake and many smiling faces, Vivian MeGee executive committee member and former local church treasurer, was proud to lead out in the burning of the note along with Al Lewis, first elder, David Tschoepe, and Colin Dunbar, district pastor.
The entire congregation lifted their voices in song with the closing hymn To God Be the Glory, and the service ended with a dedicatory prayer to praise God for the means to achieve this goal. •
