Goodbye Normanna

We have attended our church, Everett Bible Church, for the last 3 years.  They have been around for the last 5 years.  And for all but the very first 3 weeks, they have met at Normanna Lodge.
 
Where we have worshipped under the disco ball.
 
 
It really has been a wonderful place for us.  We have had very low expenses, so that we have been able to save for our own place without any talk of 'saving for a new building'.  Rather, we have used what God has supplied through His people at this church to be able to get our new facility.

 
Justice's big concern was that the donut tables wouldn't come with us, lol!
 
Here Is the outside of the building

 
Mars Hill is across the street from us, and has been for about a year, I think.  That has made parking a bit of a challenge.

 
We are so very thankful for all that God has done.  Both for the 5 years that we have been at Normanna, and for the new building.  The new building is truly more than we had hoped for or anticipated.
 
The church who was using our new building was down to just 11 voting members.  They voted unanimously to sell the church to us.  THEY are carrying the loan for us, and with 40% down, are allowing us 5 years to pay it in full at ZERO interest!
 
Wow!  Is that a God thing or what?  This Sunday, we get to meet in our own building.  In the meantime, it is an older building, and our pastor and elders along with other volunteers have been hard at work getting it ready for us to move in!

  2. It really is! AND the original church keeps saying what a blessing it is for THEM as they were down to just 11 voting members and dropping attendance. They will continue to meet, but in a much smaller space.
