Psalms 46, Verse one reads... "God is our refuge and strength. An ever-present help in trouble."
That's why the congregation of Pleasant View Baptist Church cast all of its cares on God Monday and officially said "good-bye" to the building that was destroyed by fire just weeks ago.
"I'd say this was the second or third step, the first step was praying," says Pleasant View pastor, Jeff Williams.
Its the prayers which have gotten those at Pleasant View through the past several months.
"God has been really good to us. We've had some 50-60 people banding together and we're just taking it all in stride, looking forward to what god's going to do with us," remarks Williams.
Among those who braved the wet and cold conditions to help demolish the church were young men from the "Bluegrass Challenge Academy".
"We have them moving bricks as you can see and moving the wood that was burned during the fire tragedy and help them load a lot of trucks," says Sergeant First Class "Sugar" Ray Brown.
Sergeant First Class Brown says the chance to aid the church was something the "at-risk" youth jumped at.
"Its really a pleasure for them. They volunteered to work and help the community in any way they can," notes Brown.
Other non-members brought their own equipment, like tractors, to lend the church members a helping hand.
"They have come from all over the state here, simply on a phone call. They didn't know the conditions of the weather today. Not planning on the rain or the snow," says state coordinator of the Kentucky Baptist Convention, Mike Montgomery.
But even as the final pieces of the "old" Pleasant View came tumbling down... the church parishioners are going back to step one.
"After today we're going back in prayer and see where the lord leads us. We'll go back to the building of the new wall," Pastor Williams says.
The first walls of the "new" Pleasant View Baptist Church are expected to go up sometime this summer.
