CLAREMORE, Okla. – Christ Presbyterian in Claremore lost everything last weekend, except its faith and passion for the gospel.
On Sunday (July 28), the congregation held a church service for the first time since a fire destroyed its building.
“We’re definitely grateful to God,” member Brian Gaines said.
Gaines’ congregation barely filled the seats inside of this church Sunday, but it was the faces there that made the service special.
“We have many happy memories in the building, but only God knows why it was destroyed,” Gaines said. “We trust him.”
The Seventh Day Adventist Church has offered up its sanctuary to the small congregation of Christ Presbyterian.
It’s the differences between the two that made this possible.
