Church begins rebuilding project after tornado

AUTAUGA CO., AL (WSFA) - It was a day of celebration Sunday for Boone's Chapel Baptist Church as they broke ground on a new wing.

The rebuilding project comes after much of the building was damaged during a deadly tornado in early April.

While construction continues the congregation will continue to worship in the gymnasium.

The rebuilding project will consist of a children's wing, daycare, administrative offices and safe room for the community to seek shelter during severe weather.
