GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The Clemson football team attended a church service together at Redemption World Outreach Center in Greenville on Sunday. 

The team arrived by bus for the 10 a.m. service. The church showed a Clemson video and welcomed the team to the service. Pastor Ron Carpenter said it was a blessing and an honor to have the team in attendance.

"Just an opportunity to be able to speak into the lives of about 85 young men. What a privilege to get them in such a pivotal time in their lives and to be able to say something that makes a difference a long time down the road," Carpenter said.

The congregation stood and applauded more than a dozen players who went to the front to be saved during the service.

Clemson football coach Dabo Swinney said it was a great service.

"We provide a lot of resources academically, athletically, socially, but I think spiritually, young people need to have an opportunity to grow as they see fit," Swinney said.

Swinney said every year after camp starts on a Friday, the team tries to go to a church in the local community together.
