BERRIEN SPRINGS — What looked like bad news turned out to be for the good. That’s the lesson Barn Church and Ministries officials are taking from Oronoko Township’s recent closure of their church building on Linco Road. There has been an outpouring of support from the community and the church has found a new home in downtown Berrien Springs.

The Barn Church and Friday Night Light Ministries had been meeting in a former barn on Linco Road for the past two years. Township officials only recently learned of the operation and ordered it closed in January, pending the resolution of building code and zoning concerns.
