ELMORE COUNTY, AL (WSFA) -
A two year journey is nearly complete for a church that saw its building destroyed by a tornado on April 27th, 2011. Mount Hebron East Baptist Church in Elmore County is almost rebuilt.
Members gathered for Easter service in the church's rebuilt fellowship hall, as more work is being done on the sanctuary.
"And also I'm trying to build a little anticipation. We still have a few other things to do," said Bob Williamson, Pastor of the church. "Paving will start taking place out here this week. And so we will have all of that done. And so on dedication day, the outside will be done as well as the inside."
Construction began last May, a lot of it done by church members themselves.
"Some long hot days and some long cold days too. But it's all been worth it," said Buford Strength, a member of the church's building committee.
The church was insured for $200,000, but the project's cost has topped $300,000, with another $50,000 to be spent on paving the parking area. But the church is so far debt-free, and donations and volunteers poured in from across the country.
"The Lord has just brought it in, because we've done what he wanted us to do," Williamson said.
Members will dedicate the new sanctuary on April 28th, one day after the two-year anniversary of the tornado.
