On Tuesday, October 27th around 6:40 pm, an unexpected fire started on the roof of The New Life Baptist Church Of Philadelphia . The fire travelled downward, burning through the entire attic (where the children’s room was) to the rest of the back side of the building. Some items were salvageable, but everything else was destroyed. Thankfully, no one was injured and the fire department was quick to the scene. Amidst the pandemic, we have been holding our services on Facebook Live and Zoom while the praise team and pastor were physically at church. However, due to the circumstances, we will have to temporarily hold all of our services and events on Zoom or in another facility. The money that is raised through this GoFundMe will be used to reconstruct the stage, the pastor’s office and the children’s room. It will also be used to replace any destroyed items such as hymn notes, Bibles, microphones, modems, etc. New Life Baptist Church of Philadelphia has been a place where countless memories were made with both members of the church and friends in the community. Although we are saddened that this has happened, we are grateful that many has stepped up to offer their hands of service however they can, ready to rebuild the church! Please pray for us as we begin our road to reconstruction! Any amount is appreciated. If you can, please share this to your friends and family in whatever method you can.
