Church Sponsors Outreach at Park

Meridian, Miss. A local church is holding an event this weekend, to demonstrate there is a way out of some of the problems many people in Meridian are experiencing.

Agape Storehouse Apostolic Church will hold a special outreach day at Highland Park, an area that has recently seen issues with crime.

The outreach will include interviews with men and women who have escaped from drugs, abuse, and other problems. Church leaders say it's much needed.

"They're talking about how their bad choices put them in some bad places in life, but when God came in, and turned the things around, God caused all the bad choices, how God took that thing and made it all work together for their good," said Elder Frankie Haynes.

The event will be Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Highland Park. It will include free hot dogs and drinks for those who attend.
