PRENTISS, Miss. (WDAM) - Members of a Prentiss church destroyed in an April tornado are now worshiping in a temporary building on the site of their original church.
The congregation of the James Hill Church in the Granby Community has been participating in services in a new sanctuary built from several donated modular buildings.
Facebook live services have been held there for about a month. Worshipers have been allowed to attend in person, but social distancing and other coronavirus safety measures are being encouraged.
Back on April 12, the original 75-year-old James Hill Church was leveled by a tornado.
Church pastor Sean Coney says plans are in the works to build a new permanent church on a lot adjacent to the temporary location.
