Cherokee Ministerial Alliance works with community to raise Cross

After months of fundraising and work, the Cross on the south side of Cherokee was raised and set in place on Sept. 3.

“It’s been a God thing from the very beginning,” Keith Smith, who helped bring the project to Cherokee, said.

From the first contact and inquiry in November of 2019 to its commanding presence in the community, so many have positively impacted the process of getting the Cross in place.

An ad thanking those who helped make this project possible can be found elsewhere in today’s paper.

The raising of the Cross took about 30-45 minutes.

This is the 12th Cross that Tracy Davidson of Davidson Electric in Ringwood has erected. He, along with his crew, have this process down to a science.

As he was leaving to go on to the next project (there are five more crosses to put up) Davidson said, “If the Cross brings hope, comfort or leads just one person to know Christ, it is all worth it. “

The Cherokee Ministerial Alliance has partnered with Smith and Davidson and landowner Jeanne Ginder as well as Hammer Williams Jiffy Trip to get the project done. Many in the community have given their time and donations and positive encouragement during this 10 month effort.
