In 1927 the church was incorporated, and that same year W. W Crabb was hired as pastor at Castle Rock. We have an article from the Christian Standard dated November 8, 1928 stating the following: “The digging of a full basement under the church building and the creation of an addition begun last Thanksgiving, was completed during the summer by the Christian Church at Castle Rock, Washington, and the entire remodeled structure was rededicated September 30. W. W. Crabb, the pastor, led the church in its task.
