Pray tell: It might be gospel or gossip. But a rumor last week was making the rounds that a church will rise at the site of a long gone Gerland’s grocery store, 2402 45th St. on the island.
Rumor has it the fast-growing Island Church, which offers services at 2411 69th St., is planning to build a new house of worship at the site. But Rusty Martin, pastor of Island Church, did not immediately return calls. And Michael Martini, whose family owns the property, said he had not been notified by his real estate agent about Island Church making an offer.
