New Life for the South Seaville United Methodist Church

Posted by on May 8, 2014 in God Moments | 0 comments

One June 10, 2011, fire destroyed the South Seaville United Methodist church’s building.  But after a period of transition, their new building is nearing completion.  At PUMC we can identify with this story; our building burned down in 2003, and we moved into our current building in 2007.

But as our  pastor said during the night of the fire, “Our building may be burning down, but my church is standing behind me.”  (or words to that effect…)  A church is not a building; it is the people of the church.  It is the people who build a community of faith.  Just as contractors can re-create a burned out building, so can God recreate a broken life.
