Miss. church holds services after weekend fire

NETTLETON, Miss. (AP) - A fire destroyed the New Vision Worship Center in Nettleton over the weekend.

On Sunday, the congregation gathered at the rubble to hold their weekly service.

The Nettleton church, home to 124 members, was gutted by a fire late Saturday night.

According to WLBT News, Pastor Jesse Strider arrived on the scene at about 9 p.m. to find the building in flames. No cause has been found for the fire and it remains under investigation.

Until they can build, Strider says he is looking for buildings to rent.
