St. Peter's Church holds final service

After 125 years of service, Saint Peter's Church held its final service on Sunday.



Growing expenses are forcing the church to close.



But the congregation won't go down without a fight.



"By any means necessary, we will keep these doors open," says Rachel Parker, who has been a member of the church for her whole life.



Members say that St. Peter's is not just a place of worship. They say that they serve hundreds of people at their food pantry.



"We're really impacting in a positive sense, the lives of the people here in the community that have been disenfranchised for years," says pastor Robert R. Walton.
