Sprott’s Ephesus Baptist makes plans to rebuild comment (0)
March 8, 2012
The sanctuary of Ephesus Baptist Church, Sprott, in Cahaba Baptist Association was destroyed by a January tornado.
Because of the damage to the sanctuary, members of the church — which averages about 30 in Sunday worship and is led by Pastor Henry LeVert — had been meeting in the fellowship hall. However, members are now meeting at a nearby church.
Church officials have met with an architect to begin the rebuilding process, said David Wallace, who is the chairman of the building committee, the treasurer and a deacon at Ephesus Baptist.
The building project would replace the sanctuary and Sunday School rooms, he said.
Wallace noted that a lot of donations have been given locally to rebuild the church. Ephesus also has received funds from East Side Baptist Church, Cullman, in East Cullman Baptist Association, which suffered its own loss in the April 27 tornadoes.
“We certainly appreciate all the donations we’ve gotten to help with our rebuilding,” Wallace said.
