Church Plans Service For Men Injured In OK Plane Crash
One Montgomery church is trying to help three area men who were severely injured in a plane crash over the weekend in oklahoma.
Vaughn Forest Baptist Church is planning a prayer service for Thursday night to let community members come together to lift up those men.
The crash happened Sunday, and while the FAA is still investigating, it says the plane's engine died in flight, forcing an emergency landing.
The three men were in critical condition, but are recovering.
One of the men is an active member of Vaughn Forest.
Administrative Pastor Hardy Sellers says the church has a banner for members to sign which will be delivered to the hospital in Tulsa. He says it's been hard being so far away.
"A lot of concern, a lot of prayer. There's a lot of frustration. Not a lot you can do when someone is in Tulsa Oklahoma. We have set up a lot of prayer chains and just keeping people informed so they can pray, try to do what we can do and help the family out anyway we can," said Sellers.
That service is planned for 6 o'clock Thursday night at Vaughn Forest Baptist Church.
Sellers says two of the men have been released from the hospital, but the third will likely stay in Oklahoma for several weeks to recover.
