RED BANK, Tenn. (July 13, 2016) -- White Oak United Methodist Church in Red Bank has partnered with the Family Justice Center, Second Life and the Red Bank Police Department to help provide social services to local residents.
The Family Justice Center offers free services for victims of sexual assault and domestic violence, and Second Life is a human and sex-trafficking advocacy center.
Previously, Red Bank citizens had to drive to Chattanooga for such services, which wasn't always a possibility for everyone who needed them, said White Oak Pastor Amy Nutt.
"The church was designed to be used more than just Sunday morning. To me, this is the Gospel in action," Nutt said of the new partnership which began last week.
