Congregation determined to rebuild century-old church damaged in winter storm

Posted: Updated:
NEWBERRY, SC (WIS) -

The winter storm forced a Newberry church out of its home after part of the roof caved in last week.

Built around 1895, Trinity AME Church can no longer support its congregation, so they are meeting in a nearby community center.

While the storm has compromised their structure, it has not shaken their spirit.

The congregation will continue meeting in the community center for as long as they can but they are looking to rebuild.

Donations can be made to Nehemiah Restoration Trust Fund, P.O. Box 112, Silverstreet, SC, 29145.
