Locust Grove, GA -- Sunday marked a new beginning for members of a Henry County church that was destroyed by fire.

For the first time in two weeks, the congregation of Wolf Creek County Line Baptist Church in Locust Grove met for Sunday morning service in a different church.

"That's gonna be the key, that we come together," said Pastor Terrence Wilson. "I'm just ecstatic that pastor has allowed us to come in and use the facility and make us feel at home."

Members of Victory Temple Ministries Church in Locust Grove opened their doors to Wolf Creek after suffering their own loss a couple of years ago.

"We had a flood and the roof fell in on our ministry," said Victory Temple Pastor Adrian Usher. "I wanted to be there for them in their time of devastation and tragedy."

The fire at Wolf Creek County Line Baptist started early in the morning on December 19.

The building was empty at the time, so no one was hurt.

 

But the fire destroyed the building that was built in the 1870's.

Investigators have ruled out arson, but they're still working to pinpoint the cause.

"We can't ever stop because of devastation," Pastor Wilson said. "As long as we keep going, God will give us the strength to keep going."

The congregation of Wolf Creek County Line will meet at Victory Temple until they can rebuild.

Pastor Wilson said they will rebuild.
