Cokesbury closes doors in order to reach the community


KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (May 29, 2016) -- Cokesbury United Methodist closed its doors to over 4,000 churchgoers Sunday.

Some members decided to do the work of God beyond the sanctuary.

"The impact we're trying to have is an impact on other people's lives," said Larry Langford, member of the church.

The congregation traded worship for Cokesbury's community service project called "Impact." While some picked up trash, made prayer cards and fellowshiped, Langford and other worshipers represented Cokesbury at McDonald's.

"Doing something small can make a smile on some people's faces," said Langford.
