Central Indiana church wandering since November tornado

KOKOMO, Ind. (AP) — A central Indiana church is still looking for a permanent home since its building was destroyed in the wave of tornadoes that hit the state in November.

Members of Kokomo's Christ the King Anglican Church gathered for their Sunday services this past weekend at an Indiana University Kokomo classroom. That is the fourth temporary location for the small congregation since the Nov. 17 storm.

Church member Rose Addington tells the Kokomo Tribune (http://bit.ly/1j8Z87i ) that they look at the moves as an adventure.

Members salvaged many items from the church's rubble, including clergy robes, a pulpit, several Bibles and the church sign.

Rev. Michael Henry says he likes having services on a college campus. School officials have agreed to let the church rent the classroom every Sunday until at least May.
