The congregation of a Syracuse, Nebraska church destroyed by fire last Sunday night held a service and meeting Wednesday night to talk about their future.

"There's a lot of tears for the losses,” said United Methodist Church Pastor Gary Ganger. “We didn't get to say goodbye to the building, so that's what we're going to do tonight."

A decision about the future will be made in the coming weeks. For now, services will be held in The Green Room on Sundays and Sunday school will be held at the town library.

Pastor Ganger, who sees about 85 members at service on a given Sunday, said the 1908 structure was only a small piece of the puzzle. "I told them we've only lost sticks and stones. We didn't lose the church. We are the church."

No word yet on what caused the fire.
