Augusta County Church Hosts Community Center Event
CHURCHVILLE, Va. (WHSV) – An Augusta County church is hosting an event this weekend to rally support for a Churchville community center.
The Jerusalem Chapel Church in Churchville plans to build a new community center for the town. Last month they held an information session about the center, and this weekend they will host the Cornerstone for Christ Community Center Launch Event and Festival.
“I just want to have a good time with the fraternity, get the community involved and just rally around this community center, get people excited about it. This is an opportunity for us as a church to give something back to our community, a small event like this,” said senior pastor Mark Tinsley.
The event will take place on Saturday from 2-7 p.m. at Turtle Lane Farm on Hankey Mountain Highway in Churchville. Tinsley said they will have a band, games, cake walk, cornhole, clown and other activities at the event. The Saturday event is free.
He said the event is another way to raise awareness about the event and help the community understand what it is doing.
The community center will be a space where community organizations can hold meetings and gather since the Churchville area does not have a space like this.
