(GREENSBURH, Kan.) — The people of Greensburg came together Sunday for a community worship service. They remembered the EF 5 tornado's destructive force that leveled the town five years ago.
"Five years ago, we didn't have the opportunity to meet like this,” a preacher said.
That’s because five years ago, following the aftermath of an EF 5 tornado, the Greensburg community had to wait a week to come together like this.
"This really is a nod to that and in remembrance of that service, for all of us to gather as a community. And this, five years later, to celebrate five years later as a group everything we've been able to accomplish,” resident Stacey Barnes said.
About 200 people gathered their lawn chairs. They met in downtown Greensburg for Sunday's community worship service.
“What a great, great time it is to be together, unified for the voice of God today. Amen,” a preacher said.
