Mt. Tahoma Celebrates 40 Years

The Mt. Tahoma Church family recognized 40 years of church growth with a big celebration June 2–5. Former pastors S. Arthur Bushnell, Ewart Brown, Keith Boyd and Rodney Draggon delivered powerful messages that included many historical and often humorous moments of reflection. They challenged the members to continue the growth, expanding further into the community in order for the gospel to spread throughout Tacoma, Wash. But the most powerful directive to the church community was to love, forgive and ensure members that the church is a haven of safety.

Expressions of love and respect were demonstrated for the pastors' wives as they were honored for their loving and selfless support of their husbands' ministries.

The Sabbath celebration also included a message delivered by Ron Smith, Review and Herald Publishing Association vice president and Message magazine editor, and a concert featuring the Mt. Tahoma Generations choir and guest soloists Joyce Matthews and Cleveland Hobdy, Love of Life Fellowship pastor.
