Swarthmore United Methodist Church invites the community to join their Faith and Life class on Sunday, February 14, at 11:15 a.m. for a timely program on an urgent topic, with two guest speakers.

Mary Ruch, lay leader at Siloam United Methodist Church, has been facilitator of the church’s Grief Recovery After Substance Passing (GRASP) group, and during the past year has started the P.A.M. Project (Peace and Mercy). Mary will share the plans and focus of the project along with Tricia Stouch, who, since losing her daughter Pam to substance abuse, has been a frequent speaker in area high schools and an advocate for substance awareness.

SUMC is located at 129 Park Avenue; all are welcome to this free class.
