Nazarene Church plans to rebuild within year

Lebanon — Members of the Lebanon First Church of the Nazarene, which was destroyed in an Aug. 5 fire, plan to rebuild within the year, Pastor Richard Burdett said in an email Friday.

The congregation “now looks to the future of ministry in the immediate; plans to rebuilding within the next year; and long range plans to continue to be ‘the church in the heart of the city with the city at heart,’” he said.

Lightning hit the church at 1222 Garfield St. at about 5:37 a.m., spreading throughout the building via electrical wiring. When the first Lebanon Fire Department units arrived minutes later, they were confronted with about 2,400 square feet of the structure engulfed in flames.
