Woodburn Community Church Dedicated
After 30 years of operation, members of the Woodburn Community Church discovered that the church had never been formally dedicated, so on May 17 they held a dedication service.
Since members had recently been remodeling the church, this was an appropriate time for the service. They spent hours cleaning, painting, and putting in new carpeting. Old orange pews were replaced with new chairs in the sanctuary. The front of the sanctuary was completely re-done. Even the church parking lot was steam cleaned.
On the day of the dedication, Don Livesay, Oregon Conference president, joined Eddie Ciobanu, pastor, in the dedication litany. The Salem Adventist Men's Chorus gave musical interludes.
As an interesting side note, Dennis Colgan, Jim Green and Lula Eugene, three previous pastors of the charter members, still attend.
