COLUMBUS, Miss. (WTVA) - First Pentecostal Church held Sunday Easter service in the same place where the church once stood.
After the tornado swept through Columbus in late February, the church was completely destroyed.
Although the churchgoers have been forced to have routine service at other locations, they agreed to have Easter service where they called home.
The church's pastor, Steve Blaylock, said the church is currently in its first steps of being rebuilt.
He also said the podium he preached from during Sunday's service was the same podium that was unmoved when the tornado hit the church.
Although there were no walls or roof where the church once stood, the church's family has grown even stronger.
