Churches coming together to help after walls of sanctuary came down

Posted: Updated:

After walls at the Alms of Faith Crusade for Christ Church fell in Henderson last August, local churches are coming together to help the community.  

14 News is told that property in the 600 block of Fifth Street is owned by the Dayspring Church in Henderson.

After the collapse, Alms of Faith Church members say they began meeting at Sugar Creek Inn.  

Now, Dayspring Pastor Don Johnston says the church is working with other local churches to offer a food distribution center, as well as counseling and clothing services in the Fifth Street building. 

"This is one of the harder hit areas in Henderson economically, and we feel that God was raising this up to be a minister to the people in this community," Pastor Johnston said.

"We have been blessed. Even though the building fell in, we have been blessed beyond measures," said Cassandra Happoldt, the Assistant Pastor of Alms of Faith Crusade for Christ Church. 

Alms of Faith ministers say they plan to find a new church building this year. Johnston says if you'd like to donate clothing or food, you can drop it off at Dayspring Church in Henderson.
