New Beginning

Friday, October 17, 2014

Rising from the ashes of a January fire that destroyed their century-old church building, the members of Lifespring Church celebrated the official groundbreaking for their new location on Sunday, Oct. 12. The congregation met at the old location at U.S. 231 and County Road 500 North before traveling together to the new site just east of U.S. 231 and U.S. 36. Manning shovels for the official moment were (from left) longest-running member of the church Lori Herbert, general contractor Chris Herbert, elder Gary Smith, architect Todd Scoggins, elder Steve Keele, elder Bob Rennick, deacon Josh Keele, Pastor Gerron Ayento and his wife, Tami. Since the fire, the church has been meeting at Area 30 in Greencastle.

  • As Administrative Bishop of the Church of God in Indiana, I am happy to congratulate the Lifespring congregation's bold step forward following last winter's tragedy. I commend the visionary leadership of Pastor Gerron Ayento and the Board of Church Elders. Lifespring's resiliency is characteristic of the church's powerful fellowship and the positive impact its ministries are making in the greater Greencastle community. Arise and build! Blessings!
