Teens rock out while servicing the community

March 1, 2008

Albany -- A weekend of service for hundreds of South Georgia teens closed with worship and a concert  Saturday night.

Gillionville Road Baptist Church hosted the large worship as part of the Disciple Now weekend. Young adults from nine area churches came together to participate.

This weekend is aimed at getting the teens involved.

"We've got a band that has come in and a speaker that is here. We are just adding on to the theme of the weekend and expounding upon it through scripture.  And just really hammering home what we are trying to teach the students," said Gillionville Road Baptist Youth Pastor Jonathan Haefs.

The weekend retreat started Friday night and Saturday the teens spent the day working on  service projects throughout Albany.
