Waldport Makes It Official
More than 150 guests from the community and from the Florence and Newport churches attended the Waldport Church open house May 3. Invitations were sent as far away as Belgium. Several members from the Maranatha group who helped build the church also came for the event.
Several people expressed astonishment that such a small congregation could accomplish so much in just one year’s time. The fact that it is completely finished, right down to the landscaping, and paid for, was declared a “miracle.”
Steve Waterman, area Lutheran Church pastor, welcomed members to the neighborhood, and praised the church for the work it does for the community.
In July, members of the Waldport Church gathered again for a special occasion—this time for the dedication service.
