Church Fire

A local church building in our area was recently destroyed by fire. In fact, a few of the only items that were salvaged were the pulpit, communion table, and a cross. What is even more unfortunate is that this fire affected another church as well. Reservoir Community Church (a church plant) had been meeting at Warwick Baptist in Newport News, VA until the fire left their members homeless.

Lead pastor of Reservoir, Chris Gill, told our local television station "It breaks my heart, it really does but God can do wonderful things out of it so I am at peace with it." And God truly has done wonderful things. Pretty soon after the fire Crossroads approached pastor Chris about Reservoir utilizing our facilities on our Lakeside campus for their weekend services. Pretty soon their church began to occupy the space and the rest is history. It was awesome to see God use Crossroads in this way, but its the core of who we are. Our church believes in helping church plants and we believe in doing things the Kingdom way.
