The Tornado of 1946

This tornado season reminds me of one occasion in the long history of Grace Baptist Church which dates back to 1904.

Here is an interesting account of the tornado of 46 that destroyed our building. It was told by Orville H. Williams who served here from 1941-1957. In our archives we have some pictures of the damage.

The story is told that the whole building was leveled except the pulpit and the pulpit Bible which was opened to Isaiah 53.
