The following is a history of the church, 1934 - 2012, by Linda Gratton. The Nazarene Church in the Council area unof- ficially started in Fruitvale with a small group of faith- ful followers who met each Sunday in one another's homes. In August of 1934 at the conclusion of a camp meeting, a church was orga- nized by the Rev. Earl Pounds, the district superinten- dent, with Rev. F. D Brown named as the pastor. At first ser- vices were held at the Fruitvale School, and later in their own building. If not for faith- ful prayer worriers, the church would have met its demise when nearly all of its members moved away; however, In August of 1937 Rev. Martin Swinney felt a calling to come to Council and open a work for God and holi- ness. The Fruitvale Nazarenes merged with the Nazarenes in Council and services were held in Rev. Swinney's home. Membership rap- idly increased and soon a Sunday school was start- ed. In September several revival meetings were held at the Legion hall, led by Rev. EA. Powell. At their conclusion the group met, at the residence of Dr. O. R. Leave, and the Council Church of the Nazarene was organized with 21 charter members. In lune of 1938 prop- erty was acquired and using lumber from the Fruitvale Church, work began on the wood struc- ture in which Rev. Powers Reverend George Finch and his wife Bertha are shown here, standing on the steps at the north end of the old Council Church of the Nazarene about 1950. The older woman in the foreground is Mrs. James Finn (Ralph Finn's mother). The boy is Jerry Martin, and the girl is Carol Ann Martin. would later say, this was "the church that was raised amid prayers, tears, and financial shortages". As progress was made on the church, a parsonage was built in 1940 under the guidance of Rev. Lloyd A. Pounds. In 1949 it was remodeled and enlarged during the ministry of Rev. George A. Finch. In 1960 property was purchased (across the street from the first church) and in June of 1966 the new church build- ing was started. It was dedicated on April 16th of 1967. The old church was later torn down [in the early 1990s] and the par- sonage relocated. In 1991 under the guidance of Rev. Lee Tiller and through the dedication of the Intermountain Work and Witness Team under the leadership of Bob Boyd, from the Nampa First Church, the fellow- ship hall was added and dedicated to the glory of God, In 2002 property to the west of the church was pur- chased for future expansion. In 2008, under the direction of Rev. Robert Barldey, and under the leader- ship of Audette Russell, the Loaves and Fishes Food Pantry was started. It is still an effective outreach ministry in which food is dis- tributed each month to 90-plus families in need. The 2012 Nazarene Church, under the leader- ship of Rev. John Schaffer and associate Pastor Tarra Schaffer, is still a church of faith filled prayer wor- riers Who believe in the teachings of holiness, lov- ing God, _growing up, and reaching out _to our mis- sion rid& the community around us. 7 RIVERS COMMISSION Check our website for details on upcoming sales.
