SHERWOOD, AR - Sunday, instead of going to church, members of Cornerstone Bible Fellowship Church in Sherwood became the church.
They skipped service Sunday morning, and instead volunteered throughout the community by helping those in need.
"Just because it's an opportunity for us to serve, we chose not to have church service this morning," says volunteer John Hargrave.
Instead, Hargrave and more than one-hundred of his church members took their faith to the streets, offering their services to those in need.
"Doing laundry for back to school, doing repairs, changing oil for single women and doing some things here at Eastgate Terrace," adds Hargrave.
"You kind of let those little things like car maintenance slide, whereas the car is probably the most important thing to get you to where you need to go. Get you to work, get your child to school," says single mother Dominik Morton.
"They give you snacks, and they be nice to you and they let you get hula-hoops and they let you go outside," says Braylon Givan.
The church spent a lot of time planning Sunday's fifteen service projects across Pulaski County, and volunteers know they've made a difference.
"That's the idea is to determine what we can best do to help those that are in our community that they might see Christ through us," says Mike Haigh who also volunteered.
