Church offers warmth

A man relaxes on a cot at Eastland Life Church on Wednesday in Metropolis, Ill. The church opened its doors to those in need this week and converted its gym to serve as a warming center as temperatures dipped below 10 degrees in the area. Since last Wednesday, the church has had 8-10 people take advantage of the free food and lodging, pastor Brian Anderson said. Anderson added that the church also offers a weekly program to help the homeless and help get people kick addictions. The church is located on East Third Street.
