Under New Management Everett Indonesian Purchases a Church Home

Everett Indonesian Church members understand the admonition to “seek and you will find."

Within days of seeking and praying last October, church leaders found a possible church location just off Interstate 5 at exit 193. After the sale finalized in December 2006, church members began facility renovation. Alex Rantung, the church pastor, said members often worked late into the night to prepare the facilities for the grand opening ceremony in mid-February.

The congregation began in partnership with the Everett Forest Park Church and school. Continued growth led to the establishment of the Everett Indonesian Church, which continues to thrive and grow. Dual services in Indonesian and English are now offered.

John Freedman, Washington Conference president, commended the congregation for establishing a home and taking the next step in their church growth. “As you transform this church physically, recognize something bigger: The transformation of the heart is greater than physical transformation.”

The church is located at 2919 Everett Avenue in Everett, Wash.
