Church rebuilds after tornado


NEW LONDON (WKOW) -- This will not be an ordinary Christmas for members of a church near Appleton.

It's the church that was destroyed by a line of tornadoes in August.

Trinity Lutheran Church in New London is now being rebuilt and it's happening faster than anyone expected.

In fact, Tuesday, the stain glass windows and other artifacts that survived the tornado were re-installed in the new building. 

"There's a whole new sense of excitement now and especially becoming much more visible to the community and with the windows coming in and the doors and everything down in our fellowship hall that end really got demolished and that's totally brand new down on that end," said Trinity pastor Bill Sutlief.

Even the contractor admits the work is going abnormally fast.

The hope is to have Trinity Lutheran church open again by mid-May, or sooner.
