  • Pastor "Duke" Williams of Dorris Heights-Equality Full Gospel Church is one happy guy.
    In September of this year his church completed an expansion that included a huge multi-purpose building in back of their original church sanctuary at 924 Cedar St., Harrisburg. The building also houses much needed offices.
    Church plans for the building include a youth church, youth rallies, church dinners and a monthly movie. The building has a projector that produces a very large image on the back wall, which serves as the screen.
    Since completion in September of this year the church has held a day-long women's retreat in the new stick-built building and has hosted three singing groups using a new sound system. They also enjoyed a day long opening day celebration.
    The non-denominational church has plans for a Christmas Day dinner open to anyone who cares to drop by.
    "This is a super fine building," said Pastor Duke. "It's just a blessing from God."
    Williams is grateful to the many volunteers who worked on the project and the contractors who made it possible.
    The church had long existed in Equality until the flood of 2011 forced members to look for a new location.
