Old Tyler Church Is In For A Renovation

A historic Tyler church is getting a face-lift. The St. James Christian Methodist Episcopal Church was built in 1891, and is the second oldest church in the city. They say remembering the past is an important part of the church's future.

James Shackleford has been a member for 62 years. "Sometimes, I come over, and I can just close my eyes. I just remember certain people, where they sat, years ago," said Shackleford.

"It is important to the people here because of their parents, and their history. And we want to maintain it, and we want to build on it," said Henry Dickerson, the Senior Pastor at the church.

    At this time last year, a guy by the name of Dak Prescott was still on the draft board. In fact, the Mississippi State star didn't hear his named called until Saturday during the fourth round. Luckily for the Cowboys, Prescott turned out to be the hidden gem of the 2016 draft class. The NFL AP rookie of the year was in Longview Friday night for a fundraiser supporting the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Big Pines.
