Church Deals With Aftermath Of Fire (With Interior, Exterior Photos)

December 31, 2010

A Cantonment church is making plans to move forward with their mission today following a fire early Thursday morning that destroyed one of their buildings.

The J.E. Kyser Hall at the Pine Forest Assembly of God Church was consumed by fire, destroying classrooms and offices. The main church sanctuary was not damaged, while a third building housing children’s and youth areas received some smoke damage.

Sunday School classes for this Sunday have been canceled, and the morning worship service has been rescheduled to 10 a.m. There will be no Sunday evening services. Next Wednesday, evening services will be held at 6:30 p.m.

    Thank you NorthEscambia (and William) for keeping the community up to date. I was out of town when this happened. When I got the call from my husband around 1:45am on Thursday morning, I actually said, “I’ll keep an eye on for updates.” I was able to get back home earlier than expected but still…..just shows you how much people count on you.
    Also a huge thank you to the area churches that have reached out to us offering supplies, clean up help, etc. It’s wonderful to be a part of God’s big family.
