Centennial United Methodist Church Fighting Crime

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Members of Centennial United Methodist Church on Broadway Street in Rockford called a meeting with police to talk about what members of the congregation can do to help fight crime in the neighborhood and prevent kids from joining gangs.

The church is new to the Midtown Neighborhood, which typically has a higher crime rate than other parts of the city. Thursday night police encouraged residents to report everything they see and take a more active role in their community.
