Hood River Celebrates Finished Project

The Hood River (Ore.) Adventist Church celebrated completion of its recent remodeling project, Sabbath, April 25, with an open house during its 11 o'clock service.

Pat and Tami Milligan, former pastor and wife, returned to lead out in this special program. Former members and friends from over a 100-mile radius arrived to see the many improvements.

Beautiful new windows lightened the sanctuary. The pews were recovered and the carpet was replaced. Also, all the interior walls were repainted.

Bobie DeWeber, Mid-Columbia Adventist Christian School teacher, conducted the school's bell and chime choir and also the adult voice choir.

After the service, everyone was invited to a celebration potluck held in the MCAS gym. The gym was packed with both former and current members enjoying wonderful fellowship and a delicious meal.
