Hartford, AL church is rebuilding after fire destroyed building

by Glenda Williams, BNc correspondent

HARTFORD, Ala (BNc) — The Hartford, Alabama church is rebuilding after being destroyed by a late night fire earlier this year. Recently we stopped to see the new metal structure and were met by Terry Whaley, member of the church, and David Creel, member of the church from Dothan, Ala. who is donating his work on the building.

The church wants to begin meeting in the new building the middle of August. There is much work to be done and it is being delayed by a lack of funds. When asked what their immediate needs were, Whaley replied, “We need money for the heating and cooling system and carpet.”

The Hartford congregation is small in number, but is located close to a nice subdivision. The members worship in a mobile home on the church property at the present time.

Terry Whaley may be reached at 334-701-9690. Jim Simmons, local preacher, may be reached at 334-886-3202. Whaley said contributions may be mailed to the Hartford Church of Christ, 801 Commerce Street, Hartford, AL 36344. Any amount would be appreciated.

Let’s help get this building finished so they can get on with the Father’s business.
