The Crossroads Community Church, a Grace Brethren church in northeast Philadelphia, Pa., has completed the purchase of its first facility at 7721-31 Torresdale Avenue in the neighborhood of Holmesburg.
The congregation gathered June 1 to celebrate this milestone. Kurt Miller, lead pastor at the Grace Brethren Church of Martinsburg, Pa., was the guest speaker.
“The Lord worked through many believers committed to urban ministry,” says Jim Brown, director of MetroGrace Philadelphia and pastor of the church. He notes that the congregation gave sacrificially, supportive friends shared graciously, and the Grace Brethren Investment Foundation provided a loan for the growing congregation.
