The Work Begins
The Larose group started as a church plant with five families on November 14, 2009. Two baptisms, occurred on February 6, 2010. After a year as a group, Larose Spanish was organized into a company by the Arkansas-Louisiana Conference on November 13, 2010. They continued to grow and soon outgrew the meeting place in Larose. After much searching for a new meeting place, the company found a Post Office building for sale in Lockport which they were able to purchase for $45,000 in December 2012. The company’s name was changed to Lockport Spanish SDA Company (Newsletter, 2013).
