Greensboro, NC -- Members at one local church went back to school to encourage students Sunday morning.
Members at Wells Memorial Church of God in Christ celebrated the start of the school year with the Back-To-School Education Excellence program. The congregation wore graduation caps and gowns to encourage students of all ages to strive for excellence in academics.
Church leaders say the goal was to illustrate the rewards that come with hard work, studying and determination.
The church says this was an effective event because of the large student population at Wells Memorial.
