Northern California Conference

Roseville Church Celebrates Its Centennial By Julie Lorenz

O

n April 26 and 27, the Roseville church celebrated its 100th anniversary, giving thanks to God and paying tribute to many faithful members through the years. “The DNA of the Roseville church is strong: love for God, love for each other, and the grace to accept people where they are,” said Pastor John Terry, who has served at the church for more than a decade. The guest speaker for the worship service was Northern Asia-Pacific Division Ministerial Director Ron Clouzet, senior pastor from 1988-

1993. Several of the church’s 27 former pastors returned to commemorate the occasion. During the service, Pacific Union Conference President Ricardo Graham and former Northern California Conference (NCC) President Jim Pedersen offered their congratulations, and NCC President Marc Woodson presented a congratulatory plaque. Roseville City Councilmember Scott Alvord also presented a special commendation from the city. The Roseville group was the second Adventist congregation in

the Sacramento area. Seven people began meeting in 1919—first in a home and later in rented facilities. By 1930, the 70-member congregation had built a church on Franklin Street, with space inside for a school. In 1964, the congregation purchased land on Cirby Way, and the church broke ground at their new site in 1971. The first phase of the building project was a multipurpose building, the Better Living Center, where they worshiped until their sanctuary was completed in 1987. Their new church was dedicated in 1990.
