Seventh-day Adventist Church dedication

The Dedication Day for the Clearwater Seventh-day Adventist Church happened Oct. 12 at 11 Lodge Dr. After months of hard work repairing the Church structure and refinishing the interior, many friends from the community attended to celebrate the service.

Pastors Wesley Torres and Ern Brake from the B.C. Conference of the Seventh-day Adventist Church led out in the service. John Harwood, on behalf of the Clearwater and District council, congratulated the members of the Church, stating that Christian values are a much-needed part of a successful community.

Retired Pastor Lloyd Strickland of the Clearwater Christian Church gave a lively history of the Church building as he was involved from the start of the building process beginning in 1963.

Clearwater Christian Church building changes hands

The Seventh-day Adventist Church in Clearwater rented the Church building at 11 Lodge Dr. for 14 years from the Clearwater Christian Church. On March 1, 2019, the Church building was purchased by the Seventh-day Adventist Church. The Church offers Sabbath services to the community on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

All are welcome.

The Seventh-day Adventist Church in Canada, founded in 1901, has approximately 72,000 members in 500 Churches. The worldwide Church has more than 20 million members gathered in over 150,000 congregations in 213 countries.

The name Seventh-day Adventist reflects the beliefs of the Church in three words. “Seventh-day” refers to the biblical Sabbath of rest, which was graciously given by God to humankind at creation and observed by Jesus during His incarnation. “Adventist” indicates the assurance of the soon return (advent) of Jesus to this earth. Together the name speaks of the gospel, which is salvation in Jesus Christ, and open to everyone.
