Midnight Son opens new worship center

Midnight Son opens new worship center

Sept. 20 was a day of celebration for the Midnight Son Seventh-Day Adventist Church in Kenai as they opened their new worship center. Mayor Pat Porter assisted the children with the ribbon cutting ceremony stating that “our children are the future of our community and our churches.” Administrative Pastor, Quentin Purvis from the Alaska Conference of Seventh-Day Adventists travelled from Anchorage for the occasion and officiated in the inauguration service with local pastor, Rick Cabero. During the service, those who attended enjoyed a variety of Christian music complemented by sign language, as well as two special songs performed by the children, one in Spanish.

The new worship center features a grand piano as well as state-of-the-art audio visual sound systems, enhancing the already astounding acoustics. Contemporary lighting, comfortable seating, and overhead windows that frame birch trees set a very peaceful and worshipful atmosphere. Downstairs the facility reveals a modern kitchen with tables suitable for meetings, social functions and food service.

Every Saturday services are held at 9:30 a.m. with Bible classes for all ages, and at 10:40 a.m. for Praise and Worship. Celebrate Recovery, a Christ-centered 12-step group meets every Thursday at 6 p.m. This church family is excited about the new church growth they observe and the capabilities of reaching more physical and spiritual needs of people in the community with their new facilities. All are welcome to attend the weekly services located at 1904 Wyatt Way (Mile 8.4 on the Kenai Spur Highway) near Mountain View Elementary School. Pastor Rick Cabero may be reached at 420-0820 or rickabero@aol.com. The new worship center will also be available for private use.
