Terrace church sold

A second Lutheran church on the market finds buyer

The city may be about to set records for new housing, but there’s also a thriving market in the purchase of older buildings.

The latest is the sale of the building beside Misty River Tackle on Agar that has been the rented home for a small Lutheran congregation.

The Terrace Lutheran Mission Church congregation had rented the building for the past seven years but had its last service there June 29. Congregation members are now holding services in the Happy Gang Centre, said Pastor Clint Magnus who preaches at the Redeemer Lutheran Church in Kitimat on Sunday mornings and then comes to Terrace for an afternoon service and Bible study with the local congregation.

Remax realtor Laurie Forbes, who handled the Agar sale, said the building had been up for sale for $240,000 last year, and again for $230,000 this spring, but didn’t sell. It then sold June 16 for $295,000.

The new owner plans to eventually convert it into a house, said Forbes.

It’s well-suited for a home as it has good sized rooms, office space, one bathroom downstairs and two upstairs, a full basement and is on a double lot, she said.

Also just recently sold was the Christ Lutheran Church building on the corner of Sparks and Park.

While both congregations are Lutheran, the Christ Lutheran Church congregation belongs to the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada while the Terrace Lutheran Mission Church congregation belongs to the Lutheran Church-Canada which has close connections to the Missouri Synod.
