“Water” will be the topic of much fun and education when First United Methodist Church in Sartell presents “Are You Thirsty? A Celebration of Water for all Ages.”
The program, to which all people of all ages are invited, will take place from 1-4 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 8 at the church, which is located at 1107 Pinecone Road S. People may register online at www.fumcscr.org or by calling 320-251-0804.
The event will feature “In the Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theatre” from Minneapolis, as well as Douglas Wood of Sartell, a national best-selling children’s author and dedicated naturalist. He will read from his book, “Grandpa’s Prayers of the Earth.”
Members of the puppet theatre will perform with puppets, and they’ll guide participants through a fun watercolor painting session on the theme of “Water.” Those who want to take part in the painting should wear clothes that can get paint on them.
People of all ages at the event will learn about where we get our water supply in the St. Cloud area, how much water is left on the earth, tap water vs. bottled water, the earth’s water cycle and world shortages of clean drinking water.
There will be free child care for children under 5.
