FOREST TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — Members of a Genesee County church gathered at a school, just days after fire destroyed their 50-year-old building.
Jeremy Hoover, pastor of Otisville Church of Christ, told more than 100 people Sunday that they are the church. He says the building burned down "but we are not defeated."
The Flint Journal (http://detne.ws/2bwiQh4 ) says the congregation met at Otisville Elementary School, even using metal pots as collection plates.
Hoover was emotional as he talked about seeing so many familiar faces after the disaster. Ben Montgomery urged fellow church members to encourage each other to "keep our faith."
