Posted: Updated:
PEORIA, Ill. (WEEK) -- -

A South Side church hopes a display brings awareness to the effects of violence and drug usage in the community. 

New Beginnings Worship Church, 1910 W. Lincoln Ave., has a coffin and body bag on display outside the church. Pastor Quinton Brown said he hopes community members who pass by the church see the results of these issues. 

"We are being proactive in our approach and not waiting on a negative situation to happen," said Brown.
