Fire can’t shake faith of Rocky Creek Presbyterian

-A A +A
By Don Worthington

Sunday, July 1, marked the beginning of Farrar Griggs’ seventh year as pastor of Rocky Creek Presbyterian Church on Johnson Road near Jefferson.
On a normal Sunday, Griggs would have been in the pulpit of the historic church. In 1903, church members built a sanctuary on the Johnson Road site. The church traces its beginnings to about 1850, said Griggs.
But that Sunday, Griggs had arranged to stay at his home in Kannapolis, N.C., celebrating the day with four adult children, including Emily, who has been a missionary in North Africa for the past 10 years.
