It was started in the electric box. You can see the explosion from the box. It started about 2 am and the pastor was home in bed. Someone heard it on a scanner and called him. Please pray for these people. It was a total lss.

Harry James was the first pastor there 30 years ago when HE built the church. He stayed until Mike took it over about 15 years ago.

Christ built the church and the church has no walls.

Harry James literally built the church. I am in understand that Christ built the church as He does everything. My point was that Harry was the one that laid the block, built the walls and was the first preacher to be associated with that church.

wrong! Mike married my husband and I in that church 21 years ago this past July. He had been there a little while before that.

Why does everything have to be an argument or all about something other than what a forum starts about. This is a horrible thing that Fincastle Church Of God burned. I hate it for everyone who attended. It is a sad thing.

all you have to do is listen to the news. they just put a brand new roof on the church and something else (I can't remember what they said without going and looking) And according to the news they do have insurance. The investigators with the insurance company are supposed to be looking at it with the fire chief.Why would a church that big Not have insurance? And to everyone else talking about how it started, again, watch the news. at first they thought It was electrical bit now they are not 100% sure. they are supposed to back out there today to investigate.

if....and i mean IF....someone started this fire on purpose then they should be put in front of the Lord to be judged by him. they should be given the express pass and go straight to him. if....and like i said IF....they should be stoned in the parking lot by the church members.
but let's remember....accidents happen. thus the "accident" tag instead of "intentional".
...
...
...
...
...
the thing that bothers me is the sheriff said they noticed it while they were patrolling due to increased breakins and cime in the area. why was this not reported anywhere? wlaf , laf. press, laf. news, etc.
if there is bad things going on in the area people should be told about it.
