Again the congregation worked diligently with much sacrifice and paid the mortgage off in 1964. In 1974, Pastor Harris instituted another construction project for an expansion of seventeen (17) feet to provide additional space to accommodate the growing congregation. The church had $32,000 cash on hand, they borrowed $80,000, and the additional structure was completed in 1975 and valued at $175,000. The church was renamed the New Harris Temple Church of God in Christ. The mortgage was paid off in 1978.
