"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.
