It was a big step in the rebuilding process for a church destroyed in the April 27th tornado last year.
Alberta City Baptist Church broke ground on their new church building yesterday. The church's christian center is the only thing that survived the storm.
Since last April, the congregation has been meeting at a nearby church. The pastor says in the beginning, they were not sure if rebuilding was the best choice.
"We went through the process of trying to decide, do we relocate do we join with the church we've been worshipping, merge with them or did God want us back here and we believe God wants us back here," said Pastor Larry Corder.
The pastor says they hope to have the church built in a year.
