Church celebrates

SEQUIM — Sequim Bible Church will mark 50 years of ministry Sunday.

All living former and current pastors are hoped to be present at the church at 847 Sequim Ave., Pastor Dave Wiitala said.

Ron Eggart will speak at the 9:30 a.m. service, while Jack Teachout will speak at the 10 a.m. service.

Thirteen people met in the summer of 1964 to discuss the new ministry, and the first church service was Nov. 1 that year at the American Legion Hall in Sequim. Forty people attended, Wiitala said.

A large brick house on the south side of Sequim was purchased that December.
