"We at United Christian Church are going outside the four walls of our sanctuary to hopefully reach not only the youth in our community, but everyone! Our mission, which we believe will be accomplished, is to save souls, souls, and more souls as well as to get people back to the cross and have a good time doing it,” said Sheila Brown Honeycutt, a longtime member of the church.

The Streetcar 5K Run will also be on Saturday at 8 am. The registration for the race will be $25. The race will begin at the Tennessee Williams’ Home, located at 300 Main Street.
