A Fort Worth church is back in service two years after a devastating tornado.
On Sunday, Valley Missionary Baptist Church held its first service in the sanctuary since that storm.
"I feel so good today. I feel so good standing there and holding the door," said Ruth Dickens, usher. "I really do, it's a proud proud feeling."
For some, the tornado actually helped the congregation form a stronger bond.
"We were OK with what we had, but then, we had a reason, there was a reason to come closer," said Dickens
Members said the community also played a big part in getting the church back in service.
The city also chipped in to keep utility costs down.
The April 2007 storm peeled off much of the church's roof, and blew out many of the walls.
