From offering bold prayers during the Orlando attack to offering up hot chicken biscuits to first responders during the Texas tornadoes, Chick-fil-A is known for coming to the rescue in their local communities. Where there is a need, the Christian owned and operated fast-food chain is ready and willing to serve.
And a recent church crisis in Henrico County, Virginia, proved to be no exception to the restaurant’s generosity.
When White Oak Community Church members arrived at their worship location at the Econolodge on Labor Day weekend, the congregants were welcomed by quite an unpleasant surprise plastered on the doors.
Clearly marked “condemned” signs indicated that the building was not to be occupied.
“Upon arriving to our current worship location we found that the building has condemned signs on the door,” the church shared on its Facebook page. “The only legal use of any of the spaces are for the Econolodge to conduct business. We obviously do not have church this morning.”
Displaced but still desiring to worship, they moved their equipment in search of a new space.
The members remained incredibly hopeful and positive after what they called a “minor setback.”
