After a devastating fire caused by lightning strike, the Windber Church of the Nazarene has remained strong.
The church’s congregation gathered for the first time in person on Sunday at the Scalp Level Covenant Brethren Church.
Since the accident the congregation has been holding their Sunday services online through Facebook while they wait for the results of their insurance appraisal.
The new pastor of the church however has not seen the accident as a sign of bad luck but rather as something positive.
“I hope that we’re inspired by this, We recognize the lightning strike and the fire and all of this stuff to be a blessing, to be movement towards expanding God’s kingdom and drawing people closer together and closer to God. That’s the mission.”
The church is hoping to move their Sunday service to the parsonage adjacent to their old church building next week.
