Destiny Christian Church raises a trio of crosses in RocklinBy: Anne Stokes / Placer Herald Correspondent
The next time you're headed northbound on Highway 65, keep an eye out for Destiny Christian Church's new show of faith. After a year of planning, the congregation had a trio of crosses installed at their Rocklin church, the largest of which stands 40 feet tall and weighs in at 10,000 pounds and is flanked by a pair that stand 30 feet tall.
"We believe with all of our hearts that Jesus offers hope to people and that putting our crosses up is our way of telling our community that this is a church that wants to give people hope," said Pastor Greg Fairrington. "This is a church that cares for people. The name of our church is Destiny Christian Church and we believe that God has a destiny for [everyone] which is found through Jesus. The crosses represent that."
