WACO, Texas (AP) — The stars of TV’s “Fixer Upper” have invited a congregation that worships under a Texas highway bridge to use the lawn of nearby Magnolia Market at the Silos for services during road construction.

Pastor Jimmy Dorrell welcomed the offer from Chip and Joanna Gaines as Church Under the Bridge in Waco faces relocating next year. The $300 million Interstate 35 widening project begins in March.

Officials say Church Under the Bridge, which this month celebrated its 26th anniversary, usually draws 200 to 300 people on Sundays. The focus has remained on the marginalized who may feel unwelcome elsewhere.

Chip Gaines told the Waco Tribune-Herald that he admires Dorrell, heard the I-35 project would impact the church and offered the Silos lawn for Sunday services for a year, at no charge.
