Honey Grove congregation loses church to fire

One of Grace Presbytery’s congregations, Main Street Presbyterian Church in Honey Grove, lost its church building. Late Saturday night, the church burned completely to ground and is a total loss.

Jan DeVries, General Presbyter, posted the news on her Facebook page as well as email communication with members of Presbytery Council, Committee on Ministry, and Administrative Commission on Property. Almost instantly, there were responses offering prayer and assistance to the congregation.

“The support experienced through the larger church family throughout the presbytery and around the country is a testimony to the power of prayer, the importance of communication and the connectional nature of the PC(USA),” Jan noted.

As Jan headed off to preach at All Nations Fellowship at Highland Park Presbyterian Church in Dallas, Ronnie Holloman headed to Honey Grove to be present with the congregation as it gathered this morning in the home of one of the members.

Ronnie Holloman, Senior Director of Church Ministry and Transitions, met with people of Main Street on Sunday morning.

“We met in the home of some members where we worshiped, prayed, and gathered for support,” said Holloman.

The congregation has started the process of grieving their loss and praying about the future. They have arranged for worship space for the time being.

We ask that you keep the people of Main Street Presbyterian Church in Honey Grove in your prayers.  And we will continue to provide updates as they become available.
