Rehobeth Baptist Church of Lawley
Until the church was destroyed by arson on February 3, 2006, the congregation met in a wood-frame building constructed in 1912. Rehobeth and eight other churches in Bibb, Pickens, Greene and Sumter Counties were damaged by a string of fires set by teenagers Matthew Cloyd, Russell DeBusk and Ben Moseley.
A new $540,000 church building is under construction, funded by donations in addition to insurance coverage. The new 50 by 65-foot T-shaped sanctuary will be adjoined by an office and classrooms and will have a full basement. Lovelady Construction of Slema is doing the work.
