Watkinsville FIrst UMC spent the last Sunday in 2015 holding a special service -- "Worship Through Service" to be exact. Instead of their usual 11 a.m. worship service, they used the time to assemble 200 UMCOR Health Kits.
This was the conclusion of a season of giving for the Athens-Elberton District church.
"On Christmas Eve they literally donated The Coats Off Our Backs at the altar and we collected 178 coats," said church pastor Rev. Teresa Angle-Young. "We are giving the coats to ACTS and the Athens Homeless Shelter."
