MOFFETT, Okla. (KFSM) — Just months after historic flooding strongly impacted the city of Moffett, Oklahoma, three churches in the community came together to bring those affected closer.

The churches New Morning Star Baptist Church, Full Gospel Church, and Moffett Street Baptist Church joined together for a joint service on Sunday (Aug. 18).

The churches welcomed community members to come and show their support as they continue their efforts to recover from the flood that devastated the town.

“I don’t know if you noticed the sign when you came in it says community church. And we use that because there is New Morning Star Baptist Church that’s down the road, there is the Full Gospel church that right up the street. There is this street, the Moffett Baptist Church and so what we’ve done is that all three came together as a community,” says Pastor Harold Yates.

The flooding that took place in May reached as high as six feet before the Arkansas River crested, engulfing the entire city of Moffett.
