WILLIAMSON COUNTY, Tenn. - A Williamson County church destroyed by fire earlier this week is being dealt another tough blow. The pastor of Pewitt's Chapel just learned the building wasn't covered by insurance, as previously thought.
"It's just as bad as the news the church was burning," said Pastor Chris Alonso. "It was disappointing, kinda like, check again, this can't be true."
Alonso says it turns out the parsonage next to the building is covered by insurance, but not the church itself.
It's devastating news, because the church was counting on that insurance money to help fund the re-building efforts.
"You know, we don't know exactly what's going to happen, but we trust that God is going to take care of everything," he said.
A fund for Pewitt's Chapel Free Will Baptist has been set up at Bank of America, and you can make donations at any branch.
The church is also planning several fundraisers over the next few weeks, to bring in money for the re-building efforts.
In the meantime, the church will hold services this Sunday under a tent in the parking lot.
Alonso says several other churches in Williamson County have offered up space for his congregation to use. He has not yet made any final decisions about where they will go.
