"Hope in Action" at FUMC
Seven local grade schools participated in "Hope in Action." This event teaches the students about being "Green." The students say that “Hope” is how we can be more loving and compassionate and “Action” is how we make it happen! Mayor Kitty Piercy says that, “First United Methodist Church is a great place to hold this event as the church is an example of “walking the talk” to make the world a better place.” She also told the students that there is a lot that they can do to make the world a better place. They can grow things at their school for the lunch program, they can join the “green school program,” they can recycle and much more! Some of the workshops that the students had to choose from: Small Differences that Make Big Changes, Stream Bank Stabilization, Greenhouse Effect and Cool Schools, Youth Grow-Summer Gardening, Recycling and Conflict resolution. In closing, Mayor Kitty Piercy says, “Be proud of yourselves, bring the information that you learn back to your school and to your home and go out and be great steward of the earth!”
