The Edgerton United Methodist Church was destroyed by a lightning strike back on the night of July 17, 2012.
It’s been a long and difficult road back, but this Sunday, the congregation will celebrate completion of the new church with sanctification of the sanctuary at 10:30 Sunday morning.
Pastor Richard Barnett, through the Bryan Times, extended an invitation to everyone to attend. After the service, there will be a potluck dinner in the new fellowship hall.
Ground was broken for the new church on Palm Sunday a year ago, and work on what will end up being about a $2 Million project has continued nonstop since.
Private donations and insurance are covering the costs, and the church will not even have to deal with a mortgage when it’s all done.
The new church is the same size as the one it replaces… about 9,000 square feet.
