The Kenosha SDA Company is currently in search of a new meeting space. For the time-being, they are holding services in the basement of the Kenosha SDA Church building on Sabbath mornings (9:30am-12:30pm) and afternoons (2:00pm-4:00pm).
Kenosha is the fourth largest city in the state of Wisconsin and, even though it is north of the border, is part of the Chicago Metropolitan Statistical Area. Located in the McKinley-Roosevelt neighborhood, the Kenosha Seventh-day Adventist Company is just minutes from bustling Downtown Kenosha. Also in close proximity to Simmons Island Park and Beach, an array of museums, and quality institutions of higher education (Carthage College, UW Parkside, and Gateway Technical College), this congregation strives to be a light for Jesus in the midst of a thriving community.
According to the Lake Union Herald (1966) article “Kenosha Church Organized”: For many years the few members living in Kenosha have attended services in Racine, a neighboring city, because there was no church in Kenosha. They worked and prayed and saved, but seemingly to no avail. But patience, perspiration, and perseverance have a way of paying off. On July 2, a Seventh-day Adventist church was officially organized in Kenosha with R. E. Finney, Jr., conference president, leading out. I. W. Morford is the pastor. At present the congregation is worshipping in the Methodist church at 23rd and Roosevelt Streets, but they have plans for their own building. Average attendance is above forty and it is growing. We welcome the new church group to our conference organization. - H. J. Harris
