Members of Woodlawn United Methodist Church volunteered at twenty-five different places around the county for "life server" day.

They pulled weeds, scrubbed bathrooms and sang to the homeless among other tasks.

"Basically what we're trying to do is get the church outside of the building. And god tells us to go and love our neighbors," said Brian Hasty, the church’s Director of Youth Ministries.

At Noah's Ark on Front Beach Road, one group of volunteers worked to beautify the grounds outside and inside.

At the Rescue Mission, more than forty volunteers spent time talking with the homeless while the church's youth band spreads God's love through music.

"I think it's great. I really do. I think it's really great they come all the out here, take the time out of their own time to sing," said Richard Auston who is homeless.

At lunch time the homeless were treated to some Memphis in March. Church members smoked Boston butts all night long.

"Hopefully this will stick and this will be something that we'll connect with and it will become part of our lifestyle," said Liz Bennett.

One of the projects planned was a fishing trip for children at the Anchorage Children's Home but it had to be postponed because of bad weather. The congregation also volunteered at nursing homes and animal shelters.
