Stone church opens Christmas Eve

At The Cross, a non-denominational Christ-centered church, is slated to hold its first of many services on Dec. 24.

The service will be held in a newly renovated building located at 233 Clinton Road that has been sitting vacant for 20 years. Jim Rymes has owned the building for two decades and has recently been working to renovate the church so At The Cross can hold services there.

Pastor Rick Davis said in a press release that the project started months ago with a call to Rymes, who he had known since he was a kid. Rymes offered the building to Davis. The place needed a lot of work, but Rymes said he would pay for the cost of renovating the place. Davis told his son Nick, who is the lead pastor at the church, that “only God can make this happen.”

“We started as six Christians in our home a year ago now we get one of the most beautiful churches completely renovated,” Davis said.

The church will hold a Christmas service Sunday morning at 10:30 a.m. that will feature a special Christmas-themed lesson “A Random Christmas.”

Davis invites anyone interested to join the group for its first service in the new location.
