MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - A new Montgomery church is doing their part to help clean up an old and neglected cemetery.

The Church of the Highlands, whose main campus is in Birmingham, is starting a new Montgomery campus.

Every summer the church picks a community outreach project.

Church leaders say they picked Redmont and Lincoln Cemeteries because they wanted to bless the families of those that have passed away and make an impact in the city.

This is the church's first outreach project in Montgomery. About 60 volunteers helped with the clean up.
