New church coming to life this weekend

PUNXSUTAWNEY — When it comes to churches, our town has a variety. Some have been in this town for more than a hundred years, while others came much later.

Starting a church is more difficult then anyone would imagine. Much like a business, it takes a lot to get established, and there are a lot of steps that go on behind the scenes.

For the past two months Pastor Dr. Rick Himes and Ron Shirey, of Church Insurance Specialists, Inc., have been working to establish a new church here in Punxsutawney, and after much hard work and dedication, they will open the doors to the One Life Church.
