Church opens doors to Bethel Baptist Church members after fire

GAFFNEY, S.C. (WSPA) – Sunday marked the first time that members gathered to worship at Bethel Baptist Church since flames ripped through part of the Gaffney church.

Part of the church remains in ashes. Bethel’s congregation was welcomed to the Indian Hill Baptist Church.

The two churches shared Bible study and service hours with praise singing and scripture from the Bible.

Pastors of both churches say they are happy to work together

“We are a church that believes in helping others and when I saw the need with Pastor Sanders I immediately reached out to help him,” Pastor Mary Jefferies said.

The investigation into the fire will continue into next week.
