The congregation of the Community Presbyterian Church dedicated the little yellow house next to the church in the name of Alvin “Bud” Young on Sunday, May 6.
The building to be called the Alvin “Bud” Young Center for Peaceful Worship is opened up to the community of “Hawthorne, Mineral County and the world” for anyone who is in need of a space to worship.
Della Young, wife of Bud and Pastor Linda Young of the Presbyterian put the ribbon to the little house. Outside, a plaque reads, “This place of worship is for the Glory of God and in memory of Alvin “Bud” Young”. Bud had been a long time member of the Presbyterian Church.
“It has taken the combined interests of many people to provide this setting for community worship, ranging from the dream, to the accumulation of funds, to the hands that built the building. Sometimes we simply need a place to escape the strains and stresses of the world around us, so that we may be closer to you,” the prayer of dedication said.
In the building people will find a Bible to either sit and read or to take with them if in need.
The little yellow house sits next to the Community Presbyterian Church, corner of 7th and F Streets in Hawthorne.
