Sutherlin School Celebrates Loan Burning

A fire was set at the Sutherlin (Ore.) Christian School on Sept. 14. Fortunately the burning was confined to a piece of paper—the loan note representing the indebtedness of the church for the new school building. Thanks to the generosity of dedicated church members, the 10-year note was paid in full within two and a half years! Plans are underway for construction of a new school gym and additional classrooms.

The Sutherlin Church is also anticipating the long-needed replacement of the Better Living Center and the Community Service Center facility. Sutherlin has a prayer-centered church membership that is not afraid to step out in faith.
