Middleton Church Celebrates Baptisms in New Building

On Nov. 21, 2009, the Middleton (Idaho) Seventh-day Adventist Church celebrated its first baptism in their new building. Alvin Schnell, head elder, baptized Charles and Frances Cortez. He also baptized his son-in-law, David Robertson.

Special guests for the occasion included Robertson’s parents from California. Harold Dixon, Idaho Conference treasurer, led the singing. A special guest, Eleanor Lay, who is 97 years old, was instrumental in introducing Charlie and Frances to the Adventist church when they were beginning a spiritual search.

Ann Hay was also a guest on this special Sabbath. She and her husband, Bob, donated a grand piano to the church in memory of their son, who died two years ago.

This is just one more exciting milestone for the Middleton Church.
