ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Dozens of teens from Florida will be in Albany this week to help clean up the city.

More than 60 people from Beach Church in Jacksonville arrived in Albany Sunday.  The group, made up of 52 teens will be here until Friday.

Two teams will be doing work throughout the community, while another will be participating in Vacation Bible School. A "Hope" van will also be traveling throughout the city spreading the message of Jesus.

"As we're out cutting grass and serving elderly and painting and doing some of the other things that we'll be doing this week our hope is that as we get our hands and our feet a little bit dirty that we become the hands and feet of Christ here to the folks of Albany," said Chris Peltz, a student pastor for Beach Church.

Organizers say this is their fifth year coming to Albany.
