LAFOLLETTE, TN (WLAF) – On a night likely not soon forgotten, historic rains and resulting flood waters soaked and ravaged a large portion of east La Follette and the Long Hollow community two years ago this evening.
Many Campbell Countians suffered damage in one form or fashion to their homes, businesses and other personal property. However, Faith Way Assembly of God served as perhaps the focal point of the devastation.
Here, two years later, the church is almost completely finished with the exception of re-sealing the parking lot, attention to the church sign, landscaping and a few other housekeeping matters.
“We’re thankful to be almost completed with the renovations with our building after the flood. To think that God has blessed us to be able to be back in our church is amazing!” said Church pastor, Reverend Steve Bruce
Bruce, who over saw the original building of the church structure in the 1990s, added “We appreciate everyone for their prayers and donations they have sent us. It has been such a blessing to be able to go back into a brand new building debt free a second time!”
Faith Way Assembly of God has a June revival planned. It’ll be Sunday, June 20, at 11am and then on Monday, June 21 through Wednesday, June 23 at 7pm. Evangelist Ed Held and his wife Heather will bring message and song.
“God and His people are good!” said Pastor Bruce. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 06/07/2021-2PM)
