New Sanctuary for First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs

A South Texas church where more than two dozen died when a gunman entered a Sunday service and opened fire now plans to erect a new sanctuary complex.

The pastor of First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, southeast of San Antonio, announced the $3 million project planned for just north of the present sanctuary, which has been turned into a memorial to those killed in last November's massacre.

Pastor Frank Pomeroy said Friday that the new project will serve as a "resurrection" for his congregation.
