Baconton church to hold service after fire

Beautiful Light Baptist Church, which burned down last weekend, will start hosting service again in about a week.

Reverend Rogers L. Chatmon says they will have service next Sunday at 11:30 in his home in Albany. Right now, Chatmon is looking for a temporary place of worship. Fire investigators believe faulty wiring in a water heater caused the fire.

"We're going to have church. We're going to have church if we have to have church on the side of the road. We gone have church. We're not going to allow something of this nature to stop us."

He says several ministers in the area have reached out and offered assistance. They've set up a rebuilding fund account at Five Star Credit Union Bank of Camilla.
