North Slope Historic District Church for Sale

The Apostolic Faith Church at North 4th and J Street in the North Slope Historic District, has come on the market for $795,000. 

The site includes the 7,500 square-foot, 250-person capacity church plus a small rental house and surface level parking. Temple Beth Israel built the stucco and tile building and opened its doors as a synagogue in 1922. It was sold to the Apostolic Faith Church in 1964. 

As with other church properties around Tacoma, we now wonder what will happen to this site. Does it remain a church? Will it be reinvented into something new? If you had your druthers, what would happen here?

Ever since visiting The (now defunct) Abbey Restaurant in Atlanta back in the early 90s, I always wanted to turn a former church/synagogue/temple into a restaurant.

Agreed Ryan. I see that place as a german style beer hall with micro brewery and polka band on weekends. My second choice would be an English style pub. What do you think?

On Muswell Hill in London O’Neill’s Pub has done this exact thing. Great place to hang out.

This building has God’s blessed alters in them. Many youth ,men and women of all walks of life have prayed with tears of Joy in this building. Years of prayers and confirmations of faith have been place on the alters in this building. I have seen many that have prayed through and given there live to Christ in this building. I hope the new owners respect that and this building is used for God’s work. Lord hear my prayers

I would love to see this restored to its former purpose as a synagogue.
