In an attempt to reach out to the younger generation First Presbyterian Church of Waxacootie Terrace has purchased the Starlight Roller Skating Rink and renamed it His House.

“We see this as a great opportunity to reach out beyond our walls and attract those kids who are mostly doing drugs and drinking in their free time” says First’s pastor Melba Jacobson.

When asked how their would be a bridge to the church from the rink Melba added, “that is the genius of this ministry. We have replaced all the satanic rock music with tracks of our choir singing uplifting tunes. We also replaced those blinding lights with elegant chandeliers.”

Even though the rink was filled with current members on opening night Melba remains optimistic. “Things like this don’t happen overnight. I am sure that the previous owners didn’t pack this place out in the first weeks after opening.”
