In 1980 the congregation committed itself to building a new and larger facility to meet the ever increasing needs of its growing membership. This building which was completed in 1984 seated approximately 625 people and included adequate teaching facilities and a gymnasium. On 20 March 1983 the congregation voted to change its name to the Forest Grove Community Church. The congregation is composed of a large professional element such as teachers, nurses, doctors, and businessmen, but also a good number of working people and students.
