With their arms full of paint, paintbrushes, brooms and other supplies, it was obvious the group meant business.

As part of a United Methodist program called Youth Force, young people from Oklahoma and other states recently converged on several metro-area neighborhoods for a week of community service projects.

Alyssa Ramsey, one of the co-directors of the summer program, said the young people worked at their project sites beginning at 9 a.m. and returned to Oklahoma City University about 3 p.m. June 11-14. Ramsey said the groups stayed at OCU during the week and had dinner and worship each evening at First Church, 131 NW 4.

Groups performed a variety of projects, most focusing on revitalizing older homes.

One helped paint and refurbish cabinets at one home.
