Nazarene Church seeks to rebuild

By Rod Rose

Lebanon — Plans to rebuild Lebanon’s First Church of the Nazarene have been filed with the city’s planning and zoning department.

The church, 1222 Garfield St., was destroyed in a lightning-ignited fire on Aug. 4. The building was insured, but most of the contents were lost as well. The original church was built in the 1960s and 1970s, with a sanctuary added in 1979 and a fellowship hall in 1995.

Since the fire, the congregation has been meeting at Lebanon Middle School.
