'There's hope' Knox church serves homeless

By  | 

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Saturday brought heavy rains, which forced many who face homelessness to move under the I-40 overpass on North Broadway. But a Knoxville church group brought sunshine to a rainy day.

"Just remind them that there's hope," Outreach Minister Christina Davis said. "That they're not forgotten. They are valuable."

She is the outreach pastor at City Hills Church in West Knoxville. Saturdays at their church are for serving all over the community. On Saturday, they made a difference with an Easter dinner for those who might not get one this year.

"Remind every single person that they matter," Harry McKinney, one of the event organizers, said.

You can find City Hills church under the overpass at least twice a month. They serve food, beverages, clothes, shoes, and even live music to help worship.

"Life is about more than me and my circle. That's the message we try to drive home," Davis said.

About 40 volunteers made Saturday's dinner possible. Davis said if you're look to help, you just have to show up to one of their 'Saturday Serve' events which begin with a service at 8:30 a.m. at the church.
