On Saturday mornings in Texarkana, TX, Pastor Cody Howard positions himself on a flatbed trailer facing his congregation. It’s a place for the homeless to gather for church services each week, beneath a bridge at 3rd and 4th Streets.
Yes, church is held even in the rain. Or in the sweltering heat of summer. Or even in the cool of a spring breeze. Or in the perfect calm of a fall morning. Or in freezing temperatures during the winter. No matter what, the services are held and the gospel gets shared.
There’s a cross on one of the concrete pillars, and a creek trickles off to one side, unless it’s raining. Then the water rushes almost over its banks. On the other side is a rising hill, where cars rush over the bridge during services.
