New Hebron Baptist Church withstood the forces of nature in Pike County for 102 years but was nearly knocked down Monday, Aug. 30 by a logging company truck. The Mack truck driven by John Crowder Jr. was circling the church to turn around when it struck the back right corner, knocking a gaping six-foot hole in the wall and shifting the church forward two inches on its brick pillars.
Trust me, this was not a act of God. We need to start a fundraiser to repair this church of history. I'll do the biscuits. Anyone do the pies? A good bake sale? Let us all work together, everyone chip in. I know the volunteer firefighters will.
