Peacemaking in East Moline Illinois

Posted by Ryan Hall
10.01.15

Christ United Methodist, East Moline, had a very successful series of events.  We had a total of 249 people in attendance at the special events. In addition, the Mothers of Preschoolers groups and the children’s Sunday School classes had peace-related lessons, and we sent out daily peace-themed email messages Sept. 21-25. Kit Evans-Ford was our keynote speaker, and she was very well received.

Below are pictures of peace flags made by the children, Kit Evans-Ford and three ladies from the Planning Committee with the peace pole which was painted by our youth, bulletin boards created by children and our special needs adults (Good Sheep) Sunday School class, the banner which was hung in our worship center, and pinwheels created by the children as part of the “Whirled Peace” project.
