The Roots and Shoots Friends begin Sunday mornings with the entire congregation in worship in the sanctuary. Following the Story for All Ages, they are dismissed from worship to their special classroom where they they engage in projects that impact the environment, animals and people. Our Roots and Shoots class is a chapter of Jane Goodall’s Roots and Shoots program. Projects from this year included hosting a Central Asian banquet to raise funds to educate women and girls in Pakistan and Afghanistan, leading worship on Earth Day, participating in Martin Luther King Day services, saving feral cats and having a Peace March. This inspirational group of young people is truly making a difference!
