St. Mark's UMC in Houston Damaged by Fire Amid Area Flooding
Senior Pastor Rev. Emily Chapman leads a prayer of thanksgiving with firefighters after the fire at her church was extinguished.
Well after the floods of yesterday, one of our Houston churches experienced a fire today. This is St. Mark's UMC, in the Heights neighborhood.
There is quite a bit of damage in the Educational Building and some smoke damage but it appears to be repairable. As a member Cindy Freeman said, "we'll be fine in time".
