Grace Lutheran Church Celebrates New Facility After Fire
VESTAL, NY -
Three years after a fire destroyed Grace Lutheran Church, the parish is celebrating a new beginning with their brand new facility.
The new building located at the same spot on Main Street in Vestal has a sanctuary, fellowship room, kitchen, and classrooms for the church's preschool.
Members of the church got a chance to look inside at the Open House, taking in the new amenities of the $2 million renovations.
"To be able to see it come together, piece by piece, and finally to be back in here, it's gone from hope to just joy. We are just overflowing with joy. We are so happy, we are so blessed." - Pastor Andy
An electrical fire was to blame for the destruction in May of 2015. Pastor Andy said he's just happy the church gets to stay in their Vestal neighborhood.
After a devastating electrical fire in 2015, Grace Lutheran Church in Vestal was torn down and rebuilt. The new facility has a sanctuary, a fellowship room, and classrooms for Grace Lutheran Preschool. I'll be live at their Open House tonight at 6 on @wicztv! pic.twitter.com/e4ElUG1URj
