Collinsville Community Church
Says Goodbye To Damaged Buildings. Plans To Rebuild (Again)
2004 Fire Story Link
Church members take one last walk around the buildings that will soon be removed to make way for a new church building.
The long time Community Church members (above) have seen the beginning and end of this church building. Some of them also saw the fire that destroyed the first church in 1933.
Rev. LaVern Draper (current minister) with his wife, and Rev. Rick Brinkley (former minister), led the members in a service and then a reflective walk around the fire damaged buildings.
All the members present for the farewell service pose for the last time with the basic building that was completed and dedicated in 1948.
