At 12:48 a.m Thursday morning, March 5th, 2020, I received a call that our Church was in flames. Upon my arrival, there were at least two first companies fighting down flames and smoke in the rear of fellowship hall area. The origin of the fire has has not been determined. Investigators from local and state authorities will there by the break of dawn.
By God’s grace, there were no injuries and the major damage was contained in the fellowship hall with first floor by the stage according to the fire chief. Damian DePauw, Jim Ferguson, John McDermott, Dawn Roth, Jobrielle Lewis and I were all gathered to witness the galiant effort of firefighters to limit the damage and save our sanctuary.
Clean up and renewal will be monumental, but God will provide. More details will be provided as we know more. Services will be determined, as we have no power or gas in the facility.
Prayers and believing God,
J. Edward Lewis Sr
Pastor and Teaching Elder
