SARALAND, Ala. (WALA) - The Celeste Baptist Church in Saraland destroyed by fire a week ago has received two portable units for worship.
The units were provided at no cost by the Alabama Baptist Convention State Board of Missions.
"It's open in the middle so they'll have a place to set up their chairs for worship and then there's three classrooms where they can set up for Sunday School and there's one restroom," said Ron Parnell, State Board Coordinator.
Celeste Baptist Church will be responsible for hooking up electricity and plumbing, but may use the units as long as they need them, according to Parnell.
Parnell said, " Our main purpose for these units is disaster assistance: fires, tornadoes, and hurricanes, but we also use them for new church plans."
