Members of Peabody United Methodist Church will have an unusual Sunday service, “Faith in ACTION,” on April 3. Following a brief worship service at the church at 9:30 a.m., the congregation will break into teams and spread out across Peabody to pick up limbs and debris piles left by winter weather.
Church members unable to do physical labor will stay at the church to assemble health and school kits for the United Methodist Church Committee on Relief. The health kits are made available to people displaced from their homes by manmade crisis or natural disaster. School kits are sent to children who often try to learn with no school supplies.
At noon, the groups will re-assemble at the church to share a noon meal together and celebrate a day of service to the community.
In case of rain, the event will be postponed until April 10. Anyone needing help removing ice storm debris may contact Pastor Angela DeFisher at the church, (620) 983-2154.
