Davison church serves surrounding communities Sunday morning

Posted: Updated:
GENESEE COUNTY (WJRT) - (06/08/14) - A Mid-Michigan church was out and about Sunday in Genesee County hoping to help out people across multiple communities.

Davison Free Methodist church in Davison Township canceled their late Sunday service to volunteer in their surrounding communities. One hundred and fifty members of all ages spread out from Davison to Bentley Schools, and the city of Flint.

It's not the first time the church has hit the bricks looking to volunteer their services. It is part of a on going program called Serve Your City.

Ron Thatcher, a member of Davison Free Methodist says it teaches the congregation to serve their community.

"We're called to serve and it's important that we teach that to our youth. We have several young kids out here serving today and it's imperative that we do that," he said.

The church partners with local businesses to accomplish their tasks such as building gardens and holding free car washes.
