Though its not about the buildings or numbers, this summation of our physical journey over the last 25 years might give perspective on part of the journey this church family has been on.1979: Thornapple Valley Church began as Thornapple Valley Word of Faith Fellowship in a small office in downtown Hastings. There were 13 inattendance. After a few weeks this small group of people moved into their first "church building", the Irving Grange Hall complete with attached outhouse. There was no indoor plumbing! Incredibly, attendance grew and it was time for an upgrade.
