Rhema Bible Church raised $5,000 to help Broken Arrow Nazarene make up for revenue lost when the city closed their firework stand.
The church opened a stand to raise money for a mission trip, but city officials closed the stand after getting complaints. As FOX23 reported previously, the stand sits on restricted Indian land owned by members of the Muscogee Creek Nation. The property owners got a permit from the Bureau of Indian Affairs to sell fireworks on the site, and the Muscogee Creek Nation then gave them a license, but since the stand was surrounded by Tulsa property it was closed down.
Rhema Bible Church presented a check to the Broken Arrow Nazarene staff on Monday.
