South Long Lake church's future on hold after fire


It could be months before the future South Long Lake Presbyterian church is known.

The church, located at 7519 Church Road near Highway 25 south of Brainerd, was destroyed by fire Sunday morning. On Monday, Pastor Bob Kemper said the church's future will have to wait until fire investigations, insurance adjustments and other reports are completed.
