The congregation of Covenant of Grace PRC in Spokane WA recently voted to purchase a building for their worship. Currently they worship in a rented facility and because the landlord was going to raise the rent significantly, they began looking for another place of worship. Providentially, this building was just coming up for sale, fits their needs perfectly, and payments will be significantly lower than their current rent.
The building comes with a parsonage, and is located in a quiet residential neighborhood in Spokane. It's a central location in the city as well as for their members. The address is 4005 E Marietta, Spokane WA, 99207. They hope to close on and take possession of the property before the end of March, and move in shortly thereafter. UPDATE: They closed on the property on April 2, moved in that same week, and plan to hold their first service here on April 6.
The congregation also voted to sell the current parsonage, and after some repairs on the new parsonage, Pastor Kleyn and his family will move in next to the church. We praise the Lord for his provision, and thank the churches for their prayers and support.
SPECIAL INVITATION: Covenant of Grace PRC in Spokane, who began worshiping in their new building on April 6, would like to invite you to join them on Sunday, May 25 for a Sunday of dedication for their new church building. "Ebenezer: Hitherto hath the Lord helped us" (1 Samuel 7:12).
The following are pictures of the new facility, as well as a picture of the congregation taken recently after a Sunday morning service. Also, see the special note re financing at the end.
