June 2, 2011
The first mobile chapel provided by Alabama Baptist disaster relief is officially on-site at Mount Hebron East Baptist Church, Eclectic, in Elmore Baptist Association. The chapel was delivered May 20 and set up during the next week.
Mount Hebron East’s building was literally blown away during the April 27 deadly tornado outbreak in the state.
While this mobile chapel is the first to come off the line from the factory in Georgia, 12 more units are expected to be placed soon, said Bobby DuBois, associate executive director of the Alabama Baptist State Board of Missions.
Mobile units are being built for Mountain View Baptist Church, Phil Campbell, in Franklin Baptist Association; Emmanuel Baptist Church, Hackleburg, in Marion Baptist Association; and East Side Baptist Church, Cullman, in East Cullman Association.
Other churches getting mobile chapels will be decided as sites are prepared, locations are decided and insurance decisions are finalized, DuBois said.
