|This not the first
Collinsville Christian Church lost to fire. The 1926 photo above show
an earlier church destroyed by fire in 1933. I believe the Christian Church
and Community Church were combined at that time and the 1933 article in
"The Collinsville News" describes the Community Church fire.--
