Knoxville church spends MLK Day serving others

By Stephanie Beecken/ WATE

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (Jan. 19, 2015) -- There were several parades and ceremonies marking Martin Luther King Jr. Day, but along with those events many use it as a day of service. Dr. King emphasized helping others. People at Concord United Methodist Church in Farragut were busy participating in a MLK Day mission blitz.

Church members brought their families out to serve the community, doing everything from cutting blankets for Knox Area Rescue Ministries, to fixing a neighbor’s roof.

Erin Victorson, 15, spent the day up on a roof replacing shingles. A family who lives next to her church needed the assistance.
