New community church

Gordon O’Neal, a member of Olivet Freewill Baptist Church, helps hang trusses Tuesday at the new church site off of Marion Street in Carbondale. O’Neal is helping build the church with Builders for Christ, a missionary group based in Georgia. Paul Buff, a volunteer who lived in Carbondale most of his life and now lives in Acworth, Ga., said when the group was coming to build a church in Illinois they asked if he wanted to go.
