Members of the World Mission Society Church of God rolled up their sleeves to give three Charlotte tunnels a makeover. The Church volunteers united together to tackle the task of removing debris and vandalism from the tunnels. Consequently, this required chipping off tremendous amounts of graffiti and repainting all three of the tunnels for the city.
About 50 volunteers came out to help restore the Charlotte tunnels. The members, regardless of age, were happy and full of energy. No doubt, they were ready to give the tunnels a deep cleaning. The volunteers were not the only ones overjoyed. One city official had very grateful words for the Church members: “Thank you guys so much for agreeing to do this. You are an awesome group of people!” In fact, several officials from the city of Charlotte were overjoyed to see the tunnels being revamped.
Following their arrival at the cleanup site, the members were divided into groups and worked methodically all day. One group stripped graffiti from the walls of the long tunnels and repainted them. After the paint dried, they sealed the tunnels with an anti-graffiti chemical solution. Meanwhile, another group worked to clean all of the leaves from the tunnels. They also cleared away trash and beautified the areas outside of the tunnels.
As the volunteers were restoring the tunnels, onlookers strolling through couldn’t help but smile and give thanks. One passerby said “Thank you so much! We walk through this area often and have to pass through this graffiti but now we can walk through with ease.” In time, the Charlotte tunnels and surrounding areas were unrecognizably transformed from their former appearances.
Denise Coleman, Project Manager of the Keep Charlotte Beautiful program for the city of Charlotte expressed her appreciation to the volunteers. “You guys are just amazing. You really did a lot of work. I would love to work more with this group in the future!”
I never saw this type of community service before! The World Mission Society Church of God really tackled an issue in the community and it made the citizens really appreciative. Good job!

Great work World Mission Society Church of God for taking care and cleaning that place. Doing the things that others didn’t want to do is really commendable.
Following the example of God, these individuals carry out volunteer work with wanting nothing in return or, praise for themselves but, only giving glory to God. That is truly truly amazing.
Toda la Gloria sea para Dios Elohim,
Sigan haciendo el papel de la sal y luz del mundo WMSCOG,,con las mismas ganas y mentalidad q Dios está sembrando en ustedes. Animo buenos samaritanos.
Truly amazing what God is allowing Wmscog to do; helping and leaving such an impact on communities during times like this.

I would like to think the Church of God for their hard work they did a wonderful job cleaning the tunnel, I never seen a church work as hard like the Church of God, they work so hard doing community work with love and unity and I hope one day that I can go visit the Church of God.
Many families use this trail often as a good morning jog and the fact that they beautified it and cleaned it up really shows their consideration towards every small thing as a mother takes care of a child. Thank you so much.
The hearts of the members of the World Mission Society Church of God reach the places that have been overlooked or forgotten by others. Truly a Godsend!
Vey proud to be a member of the WMSCOG. In my country, members also are participating in various voluntary activities for community.
