Construction Begins on Long Creek Church

October 25, 2016 | Leland Spencer

The new Long Creek (Ore.) Church construction seemed more real on Aug. 2, 2016, than any time during the preceding months of preparation and discussion. Kelly Kilby at the controls of his 305 CR Caterpillar excavator took the first bite of dirt for the digging of the foundation.

Several were on hand to witness the event. As the digging progressed, local citizens and church members have come by to cheer on the work and assist with building concrete forms and free advice.

With the efforts of the building committee chairman, Dan Rotthoff, Maranatha Volunteers International workers were scheduled to work during September. Maranatha is directing the initial construction and has been instrumental in helping to get the project underway. Local members are grateful for their efforts and timely expertise and counsel.
