New Brookings Adventist Church

Approximately 150 people attended the first worship services held in the newly-built church on Sabbath, June 25, 2005. Don Livesay, Oregon Conference president, was the guest speaker.

Easily seen from Highway 101, which is also the main street in Brookings, the tall building has "curb-appeal" in its central downtown location. The two-story, balconied structure has the distinction of being the largest church in Curry County.

For more than 10 years, the Brookings Church family has been saving towards a new church. They had considered buying property in a different location to build on, but finally decided that the most cost-effective plan would be to tear down the old structure and build on the same site.

The lower level of the church, besides housing a facility for future community health-education projects, also has room for an elementary school. Members voted to sell Cape Ferrelo Adventist School, located several miles north of Brookings, prior to starting building in order to consolidate funds for the new church, since the plans included incorporation of a school within the church building.

The Brookings-Harbor is a southern Oregon coastal community that has become known for its spectacular scenery and "banana belt" climate. It is currently experiencing a surge of population growth, and we are organizing to meet the needs of that community.
