Reverend Drake started the church in his home in 1953. That was the same year we moved to La Puente, California. Photo taken in 1954 with my brother and I with Faye Drake, wife of our first pastor.
September 4, 1955, the first building was dedicated. Rev. Benny Bates, P Boyd Smith, Rev. Glen Smith, Pastor, Mrs. George Myers holding the Pastor's daughter, and George Myers are gathered at the front door.
September 1956, my family at church. The two young ladies are Patsy and Sandra Peach.
My mother directing the Primary Choir in April 1957. This was the day of the ground breaking for the 2nd building.
Most of the work was done by the church family. This is Oscar Moser doing the cement work for the foundation.
