Daleville United Methodist Church breaks ground
Although construction crews began working on the rebuilding of the Daleville First United Methodist Church back in January, an official ground breaking ceremony was held Friday, Feb. 26 to mark the occasion.The church was gutted by a suspicious fire in May 2014 and left members in shock. They have been meeting in a nearby building, located next to the original site since the fire.Betty Davis, a member of the church since 1968 said when the fire happened it was shocking and sad, but breaking ground on the new building makes her hopeful and she repeated what the congregation has been saying ever since the fire, “We are the church,” no matter where they meet.Leaders expect the new facilities to be completed in about six months.
