It was recently reported that the Church of Rio Linda, The Royer’s church, would be purchased by Sacramento County and torn down to prevent it from being inundated with flood waters every 2-3 years.
The church has been flooded ten times over the past 20-30 years, and everyone agreed that something must be done, but it’s not going to happen as soon as we all might think.
What wasn’t reported is that this will not happen until 2021 at the earliest, So we have at least two more years to buy holiday pies from Mrs. Royer.
Pastor Royer is looking forward to retirement, but the Royers are looking for a new building in Rio Linda to bring their congregation to.
And the church will continue on.
