Lone Grove church opens new building after fire

By  | 

Two years after watching their building burn to the ground, Lone Grove Assembly of God members now have a new place to worship.

Members had just returned home for a Sunday night service in January of 2005 when they received word that their church was up in flames.

The fire marshall ruled it accidental, but they salvaged very little.

Since then, they worshiped in the church cafeteria and a rented office building.

But Sunday they help services in their new church off Highway 70.

Reverend John Harris spoke of what this means for the community of Lone Grove.

"For me to get this opportunity to see this miracle increased my faith. I'm excited not only for this congregation but for what the church and this facility means for this community."

The church is planning a huge celebration to dedicate their new building on March 25.
