With auto mechanics on staff--and its own funeral home--Cedar Park Church in Seattle is redefining how a church can reach a community.
A greasy mechanic bends over the side of a car to replace an oil filter. A well-dressed psychologist reaches across her desk to console a grieving mother. A busy store clerk bags a blue shirt and pants and wishes the customer a good day.
