First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs will build a new sanctuary and community center. The announcement Tuesday by church officials comes nearly five months after a gunman killed over two dozen people during a Sunday church service in November. The new buildings are expected to be completed by next spring.

 


Conspiracy theorists questioning whether the mass shooting at a Texas church last November actually happened have been harassing survivors for months. Now, the church’s pastor is pushing back.
