Inman Moore Jr., the church’s third minister, came in 1963. “I was a renegade, red-necked preacher from Mississippi and I got lost on my way here,” Moore said. “I put a call in and told the office: ‘I’m up here at Cajun Pass.’ I didn’t know it was pronounced ‘Kahone.’ It looked pretty dismal to me, but the bishop assured me ‘You’re going to love it.”‘ Another former pastor, the Rev. Leo Hsu, was celebrating his 75th birthday. California-Pacific Coast Conference Presiding Bishop Mary Ann Swenson told the gathering that while 50 years is an important milestone, “Lots of things can go forward after 50.” “Let’s make this an opportunity to reinvent ourselves. This is a chance to get stronger and do new things,” she said. “There can be new life and an awakening even in the winter season of our existence.” Senior Pastor James Powell presented a slide show on the history of the church, whose first worship service was Dec. 15, 1955, in the offices of Hunt Construction Co., just north of the present church on 10th Street West. Formal organization took place Jan. 6, 1956, with 87 charter members. Ground was broken for the present church at 39055 10th St. W., on Aug. 12, 1956, on property donated by Mr. and Mrs. S. Joseph Hunt. It was first occupied Oct. 20, 1957, and consecrated Jan. 19-26, 1958. Members are now planning for a larger church 2 miles away at Rancho Vista Boulevard and 25th Street West, next to Marie Kerr Park. “We are here to celebrate what God has done, not what we have done,” Powell said. “We live in a shifting demographic.” Palmdale Mayor James Ledford, a member of the church, said that attending the celebration was a special opportunity for him. “This is my spiritual home and I am proud that it is a vital and growing part of our community,” said the mayor. “I look forward to seeing our community and the church continue to lead for the next 50 years and the next 50 after that.” Presentations were made to the church by Larry Grooms representing both state Sen. George Runner, R-Lancaster, and Assemblywoman Sharon Runner, R-Lancaster, and Norm Hinkling, on behalf of Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich. Menus for the week at the senior life nutrition sites in Lancaster and Palmdale have been announced. All meals include bread, margarine and coffee, tea or milk, for a suggested donation of $2. Monday: Turkey sub sandwich, potato salad, marinated beets, orange juice, gelatin with fruit. Tuesday: Braised beef and noodles, zucchini squash, vegetable soup, tossed salad, citrus cup. Wednesday: Meatloaf, mashed potatoes, corn, three-bean salad, tomato juice, lemon pudding. Thursday: Orange chicken, rice pilaf, soup, Normandy vegetables, cottage cheese with peaches, oatmeal cookies. Friday: Pork chop, sweet potatoes, stewed tomatoes, corn chowder, coleslaw, banana.

The theme of the affair was “50th Jubilee: Honoring our Past, Planning our Future.” “We had a mission to perform back in 1956 and we did it,” charter Pastor Gerard E. Kaye told the gathering. “But the credit belongs to you. You carry the church on. … Invite me to your 100th anniversary.” Kaye was only 27 when he arrived with his wife Mildred in Palmdale for what was his second church appointment. They purchased a 6-foot-long table to serve as the first altar in a construction company office and draped a band saw to place the communion set on. last_img read more
