A church is reaching out to youth to keep them from falling in with the wrong crowd.
Greater Union Grove Church of God in Christ hosted a rally for about 60 young people Friday.
They kicked off festivities with a spelling bee to help kids get ready for school.
"School is out. A lot of boredom kind of sets in the city. We are giving them a chance and the opportunity to kind of come together to do something constructive in preparation for the upcoming school year."
The day's festivities wrapped up with food and fellowship.
