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.
