Diboll, Ryan Chapel UMC Dedicates New Building Following Fire

Date Posted: 1/2/2017

The congregation of Ryan Chapel UMC in Diboll has a new home after the fire devastated the historic building in May of 2015. During construction, the church shared a building with a Hispanic Baptist congregation next door. East District Superintendent Tony Vinson acknowledges the trauma of losing a building that has been there since 1937. “Lots of groups and individuals focused on fundraising across the district and the whole town was quite supportive,” notes Tony. Emotions were high at the recent building dedication.
