On July 26, 2015 Roosevelt Park Christian Reformed Church closed its doors in the local neighborhood. Rooelvelt Park Church had been a part of the community for a very long time and had served the local community in many powerful ways. Due to a changing community demographic and dwindling church attendance the church was forced to make a decison to close its doors. A remnant of the local community that attended Roosevelt Park Church had a desire to continue to serve and minister the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the local community. The Holy Spirit then connected this group to a local long time ministry leader in the Black Hills Neighborhood who also had a heart to minister the Gospel to the local community and was being equipped to serve as a Pastor within the Christian Reformed Church. God brought this group together in order to birth what is now the Southwest Community body of Christ.
