Sanctuary of deadly church massacre transformed into memorial
15 November 2017, 10:55 | Glen Norman
"We had some fantastic people come and pull off a miracle to basically rebuild the sanctuary in about 72 hours", said Collins.
"People see the church as, 'They stand against this, ' and 'They hate that, '" said Fielder Lead Pastor Jason Paredes.
The front three rows are reserved for First Baptist Church members and their families, as a steady rain falls on the tarp roof while church-goers slowly file in.
The memorial is open to the public Monday through Friday from 10 a.m.to 10 p.m. Authorities put the official death toll at 26 because one of the 25 people killed was pregnant.
Sheriff Walton says churches are easy targets and they've responded to several different situations in Rogers County including domestic disputes and suicide calls, so being prepared is essential in this day and age.
It will be the first time the public is allowed back to the church itself, which is expected to be demolished so a new structure can be built.
"This is really an act for us against evil, to say we're gonna fight evil with good", Pastor Paredes said.
23 worshippers died inside the church, two outside and one after being taken to a nearby hospital. (FEMA has active shooter courses and other resources that can serve as useful guides.) Other churches are training church teams to recognize potential threats.

Local law enforcement agencies, including Harris County Sheriff's Deputies and Constables, took an opportunity in the aftermath to visit numerous churches around town, where they reportedly spoke with pastors and parishioners, patrolled the grounds and looked for any suspicious activity. What they saw there will affect them the rest of their lives, Jackson said. The Air Force's chief of staff, Gen. David Goldfein, said 12 of those killed were either members of the Air Force or had family ties to it. Melania Trump also tweeted: "Our hearts are with Texas".
It's been a hard week for the community of few that is located southeast of San Antonio.
"It was on my heart since it happened", she said.
