Tornado stirs up unity
from Associated Baptist Press
Eight days after a tornado demolished much of their campus, members of Elizabethtown Baptist Church in North Carolina were cleaning up and thanking God for the unity among churches and neighbors the tornado spawned. Ironically, church volunteers had spent the day April 16 spring cleaning their buildings and grounds and had left the area just 90 minutes before the tornado -- one of 25 that hit North Carolina that day, killing 24 people -- struck their church. It caused extensive damage to two educational buildings and the sanctuary, destroyed a drive through portico and bell tower and did some damage to the activities center, which will be the site of future worship services for the near future.
