We have two new neighborhood churches in the Longview/Douglas Park area of Rock Island.  One is on 12th Street, north of 7th Avenue.  That is the Zion Temple Celebration Center.  The Pastor is Jacques Bizimana and he is a French Speaker from Africa.  I believe his community was affiliated with Broadway Presbyterian Church for a time, but now they are in their own facility.

The other fairly new church in the neighborhood is Calvary International Revival Church.  They are at 519 13th Avenue, in what was previously the House of Fire Ministries building.  (House of Fire has moved out onto 11th Street.)  Their Pastor is Dr. Vitalis Kyulule. (I call him Dr. K) assisted by Patrick Noya.  This church also is made up of recent immigrants from various African nations.

We wish these neighbors well as they seek to serve God in this place.  I keep them in my prayers.  It is always a challenge to begin a new church.
