Roaring Fork Baptist Church was one of hundreds of buildings destroyed in last November’s wildfires and while the church family has since broken ground on a new location, it won’t be ready for Easter services. Members of the church have worshiped every Sunday since the first service after losing their buildings in the wildfires.

“Everyone would love to be in these new buildings tomorrow, but we know that’s not possible,” said Webb. “As far as Easter having any different meaning after the wildfires, I can’t say that it does for me because it’s the same Lord, same Jesus.”

Webb says that same savior will be with them at Camp Smoky on Easter weekend as they carry on their Easter traditions, including the Easter egg hunt. The church lost all of its Easter eggs in the fire, but through donations 300 eggs have been replaced.  See the full story here… wate.com
