Instead of their usual Sunday services, five area churches spent the morning cleaning-up Moline in preparation for students returning to school.

On Sunday, August 11, 2013 five Quad City churches worked on clean-up and landscaping in Moline as part of the Converge Serve project.

Bethany Baptist in Moline, Bluegrass Community Fellowship Church in Bluegrass, Cornerstone Baptist Church in Eldridge, Grandview Church in Davenport, and Pleasant View Baptist in Bettendorf all took part in the day of service.

Volunteers worked at all 12 elementary schools in the Moline School District and helped to clear a storage room at The Project in Moline.  School principals helped give the churches ideas on what work was needed in preparation for the start of the school year, according to Bethany Baptist Church’s Senior Pastor, Jerry Schrick.

Crews were also working at John Deere Middle School, the Blackhawk Area Education Center, and Moline High School.

“We want to share God’s love with no strings attached, the way Christ shows his love to us.” said Schrick.
