Our Church Home

Our Building Program

Back in the early 1970's, Dr. Albert Anderson built his office at 66 N El Circulo in Patterson. 

There he carried out his mission of providing care and healing for the people of Patterson, and also held occasional Sabbath Morning services in his office.

The building has served several functions since that time, including being a realty office, and a Stanislaus County Health Services center.

Now, we have the privilege of restoring the building back to the original purpose for which it was built.

Our dream is for this building to be a center of physical, mental and spiritual health as we transform it into our church, and the "Discover Life" community Center.

At this time, we need volunteers and donors to help us make this dream come true.

Our Sunday volunteer work bees have made significant progress, and we have had contractors put in the main beams for our building. 

Now we are headed into completion of phase one, which includes everything but the kitchen and dining area.

Here's an update on our needs, and how you can participate with us in this mission!
