In the late 1960’s the then 100 members of the Eagle church began to plan for a new church. Land was acquired on West State Street (Highway 44) where the church was built and became a blessed reality. The first meeting was held in December 1972. Then, within a few years, with the blessing of the Lord, a three-room school was built - and was all paid for when finished. Later, the members saw a need for a gym, which they built and paid for in a few years. The gym is a large structure, measuring 135x60 feet. The school/gym currently houses a kitchen, library, Pathfinder classroom and four other classrooms: Preschool, Grades 1-4, Grades 5-8, and a computer/music lab.
It has now been over 100 years since the Eagle Church first began and many have gone out from our Eagle church as workers for the Lord. Some as missionaries to foreign fields, some as medical workers, teachers, secretaries, etc. But many more have served as workers in the more common vocations of life in the home fields. We would like to pay tribute to all who have been, and are, members of the Eagle SDA church. Do come and visit us at 538 West State Street in Eagle, Idaho! You are MOST welcome!
