Schroon Lake church to rebuild after fire

Eighteen months after its historic church and parsonage burned down, the Schroon Lake Community Church is ready to rebuild. The new sanctuary will be constructed on the corner of Main Street and Leland Avenue, the site of the original church. A groundbreaking ceremony took place this Wednesday, June 3, with town officials, clergy from surrounding faith communities, and citizens of Schroon Lake gathering to celebrate this milestone and give thanks for the community support the church continues to receive. 

After a short presentation and groundbreaking, Pastor Lynnette Cole and a designated panel of people involved in the rebuilding project answered questions. 

For further information, contact Pastor Lynnette Cole at or call 518-817-8495.

    Certainly great news for the congregation and the village of Schroon Lake! I was afraid that the church, as a building, would never come back on that spot on Main Street.
    Now, questions were answered. How about reporting on those questions and answers? Will the new structures duplicate what was there or will they look totally different? Did insurance cover the loss or will there still be a sizeable mortgage for the congregation to bear? Etc., etc.
    God-speed on a very sizeable project.
