Since 2007, FUMC has partnered with Pickle Elementary, located in the St. John’s neighborhood. We host twice-annual 25 cent book sales, along with author visits and other literacy programs as needed. The students at Pickle are primarily Hispanic and dual language. The students are appreciative and love to read.
