Jose Velazquez is pastor of New Covenant Ministries at Holdenville Wednesday, April 11, 2012. Last year they moved into the church building, giving it new life. In 2010, the First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Holdenville held the final service for the 108-year-old church. Attendance at the time, in mid-September, was about eight people. Construction of the present building was under way in 1925. Photo by Bryan Painter, The Oklahoman
