Colleen Darken, 7, participates in a candlelight prayer service at Saturday's dedication ceremony. The church was lit by candles until after a blessing from Bishop Robert Lynch and the church's pastor, the Rev. Austin Mullen. With the proclamation that, "Now the light of Christ is in this church," the lights came on.
Dave Larson helps with preparations for the dedication ceremony Saturday. The 30,000-square-foot, 850-seat Family Life Center at 9724 Cross Creek Blvd., is the first phase of an ambitious building plan.
