No physical damage to Trinity, Gatlinburg

Grateful for this You Tube video Trinity Episcopal Church walk around after the Fire.

We also received a report from Trinity’s verger:

Managed to access the building today. Virtually no physical damage, aside from the loss of one of the entrance coach lamps due to flying debris.  The building smells of smoke throughout, but there is no evidence of fire damage at all.

We’ll have some extensive exterior clean-up required due to branches, limbs, leaves and some flying debris that landed in the church and rectory yards, however both buildings appear structurally sound and usable.

Although parishioners will not be able to meet at the church this Sunday, they will gather at a parishioner’s home for worship. Please keep them in your prayers as you worship.

Trinity’s verger also let us know that our brethren at the Church of Christ right behind Trinity have lost their building – it was destroyed in the fire. Please hold them in your prayers.
