Youth group isn't always about things like laser tag and dodge ball, according to Andrew Davis, youth pastor at Covington First United Methodist Church in Covington, Tennessee. Sometimes it's about "outreach to make a difference in the community."

That's what the youth from his church demonstrated on Oct. 5 when they volunteered their services as banquet waiters for the Boys & Girls Club of Tipton County.

Davis said the church's youth "put the needs of others above their own" and were "bright lights to everyone they came in contact with."
