For years, the people of our city have wanted to leave Johnstown. Our only claim to fame is the giant wall of water that nearly wiped us off the map during the Great Flood of 1889. Since then, the steel mills have closed down, jobs are difficult to find, and local businesses are struggling. Kids get into trouble because "there is nothing to do around here," and they wait for graduation day - wondering how fast they can earn their diplomas and get out of town. Houses stand empty and neighborhoods are falling into disrepair, while most people reminisce about "the way things used to be..."
BUT OUR STORY ISN'T OVER YET.
Flood City Church is rising to new life in Christ and becoming a creative force for change. We believe there are people in the Johnstown area who still care about the future of our hometown. An army is rising up to fight for our city. Together, we will work with God to restore families, influence the culture, revitalize neighborhoods, and start a revolution of hope that will flood the city of Johnstown.
