Hendricks Ave. Baptist Church fire

On the morning of December 23, 2007 we awoke to the news that Hendricks Avenue Baptist Church had been completely destroyed by fire. The sanctuary had
stood on this site since 1957, but had undergone a complete renovation about 7 years ago. The Moller pipe organ (now gone) was added in 1989, and the
large stained glass window depicting the outstretched arms of Jesus, was added in the recent renovation. These photos show the aftermath of the fire.
