Seattle Spanish Finds a New Home

After many years of renting and moving, the Seattle Spanish Church recently purchased a facility at 516 N.W. 56th St. in Seattle.

Founding pastor Manuel Cabral shared at a special church celebration in mid-May how members of the church dreamed for years of having their own church facility.

The Seattle Spanish Church began in Kirkland as the first Hispanic Adventist church in the area. Later, they moved to a small chapel in Seattle before moving again to accommodate the growing congregation. A few pastors and locations later, they finally have a church of their own to call home.

Doug Bing, Washington Conference vice president for administration, challenged the congregation and current pastor, Samuel Pagán, to create a welcoming environment where people can grow in their faith and learn how to be free from sin.

What is the church's next goal? "Maybe a bigger church," Cabral said.
