New Seasons Market will help the Morning Star Missionary Baptist Church and New Generation Revival Church jump-start their rebuilding process. New Seasons stores across the Portland metropolitan area will hold a one-day barbecue benefit from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, March 3.
The menu includes New Seasons' handmade sausage, bun and beverage for $4. All of the money raised will go toward rebuilding the church and restoring the belongings of both congregations.
The 88-year-old Morning Star Missionary Baptist Church was destroyed in a fire on Monday, Feb. 5. Investigators have not yet released the cause of the fire. The congregation of the New Generation Revival Church, which shared space with Missionary Baptist, also lost its church home and possessions in the fire.
