May 8, 2014
Celeste Road Baptist Church, Saraland, broke ground on its new facility April 27. The Mobile Baptist Association church was destroyed by an electrical fire Oct. 20, 2013. Since the fire the church has used two mobile chapel units provided by the Alabama Baptist State Board of Missions. In June, a team of 250–300 volunteers from the Baptist Church Builders of Texas will work to build the church. A second team from Tuskegee Lee Baptist Association will serve in July to complete the new facility. Pastor Eddie Holmes (far left) said the building process is ‘real exciting’ and that it should be completed by fall 2014.
