Cowpens First breaks ground for new sanctuary following Dec. 2020 fire

First Baptist Church, Cowpens, held a groundbreaking ceremony for a new sanctuary Nov. 14.

“After the loss of its previous building, we are excited for the opportunity to begin in this new facility serving God’s people,” said Interim Pastor Kermit Morris.

On Dec. 26, around 2 p.m., the Cowpens First building caught fire. Damages were extensive, and the building was considered a total loss.

“There is an excitement among our church community about what the new building will allow us to do for others in Jesus,” Morris said.
