Churches Take Worship Out to Help Neighbors

HAWLEY — Instead of spending time inside for Sunday worship, some churches in Wayne County went out and helped their community.

Volunteers were out painting benches and bleachers at Bingham Park, and they painted a fence across the street in front of the borough building.

The day out was part of what’s called “The Church Has Left the Building.”  Folks from the Hawley United Methodist Church, the Wallenpaupack Free Methodist Church,  and Saint Paul’s Lutheran Church all got involved with helping their neighbors.

“The world is just in need in general, sometimes we make it to be really, really big things, when there are really small things we can do,” said Pastor Ken Platt from the Wallenpaupack Free Methodist Church.

The churches do this sort of thing a few times every year. This time around they baked cookies for seniors, helped around the house for people in need, and more.
