In 2016, Bowmanville Seventh-day Adventist Church joyfully celebrated its 40th anniversary!
The Bowmanville Seventh-day Adventist Church was organized on June 5, 1976, following a series of meetings in the Bowmanville High School conducted by Pastor Lawton Lowe. The newly organized church had as its one goal to join with others in sharing the message of God’s love as demonstrated in the free gift of salvation. For the first three years, through the kindness of the St. John's Anglican Church congregation, church services were held in their church working in earnest to fulfill this mission.
In Exodus 25:8, God spoke to Moses and said, "Let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them." The Bowmanville Church family responded to this instruction and in February of 1977, approximately two and one half acres of land was purchased from Mr. Harold Robinson. In the winter of 1977, the services of architect Mr. David Mills was secured and on September 14, 1978, a contract was signed with Gerrits Construction Co. Ltd. of Bowmanville for the erection of the church building. The sod turning ceremony took place on September 18, 1978 and construction began immediately. On May 26, 1979, the first services were held in the new church building.
Though more than 40 years have passed since the founding members launched out in their mission to establish a witness in this community, the current members have not forgotten the purpose for which this church was established, namely to share God's love and the way of salvation with those around us.
