Twin Tornadoes Destroyed This Nebraska Church – Well, Only the Building. Wow!
On June 16th, the town of Pilger, Nebraska was devastated by a pair of twin tornadoes tearing through the town. Along with several homes and city infrastructure, St. John’s Lutheran Church was laid waste. Well, their building was anyway.
Pastor Terry Makelin had intended to send St. John’s congregation to a sister parish, but changed his mind. So Sunday morning, in the place where their building used to stand, St. John’s Lutheran Church met for service.
