A north Alabama church finally moved into its new home nearly two years after a deadly tornado outbreak.

This Sunday, the congregation at the Mountain View Baptist Church in Phil Campbell will hold their first worship service in the new sanctuary.

With the help of more than 1,500 volunteers over the course of the last year, the church is now completed. Built on the same property as the one destroyed in April 2011, Pastor Sammy Taylor said this one is better than ever.

Taylor said the rebuild was made possible through the Builders for Christ group, and that construction had been non-stop since they began last summer.

The first worship service will be held at 11 a.m. Sunday morning. The following Sunday, July 28, there will be a service at 11 a.m. followed by an open house at 2 p.m. and a building dedication ceremony at 3 p.m.
