I live in sidney center and have my whole life. I myself have not had a good nights sleep since. Every noise i hear i look out to make sure all is ok. My family and i were a part of the congregation. I will always remember the time i spent there.

I grew up in Sidney Center. This is a sad day for all us. But thank you to the firemen for doing such a great job.

What a shame, was told this church was from the 1870s and the roof had just been replaced, what a tragedy for the parrishioners of this congregation.
