BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - An unfortunate turn of events has one community gathering around and helping a local family in need.
Over the weekend, the Horsman family's Battle Creek business, Pennfield Pizza, was burglarized.
During that same time, the pizzeria owner's son was undergoing surgery, and the family's grandfather passed away.
Now, the Victory Life Church in Battle Creek is rallying to support the Horsmans.
"Our church family posted a listing asking our church family to show us support, to stop in and get a prayer pizza so everyone knew to think about us and know we were in their prayers," said owner Matt Horsman.
For the past two nights, so many people came to the family's pizzeria that they ran out of dough.
