The Life and Hope Hispanic Presbyterian Church in Fort Dodge has been through four different meeting places in the last eight years. Now, it’s found a place that looks like a traditional church, for the first time. There’s a balcony over the sanctuary, a fellowship hall, a kitchen, and even a steeple.
But the important thing, said the Rev. Bien Acosta, is that they now have enough room to have a good Sunday School class.
“We finally moved to our own place, and I hope we won’t have to move again,” Acosta said.
The congregation moved into the former Lighthouse Ministries building at the corner of C Avenue and J street in late November, he said. Lighthouse Ministries had moved across town to the former First Christian Church in January 2012.
