Sunday Worship - 9:00am Sunday School - 10:00am
U Count 2U Count 2 is an initiative of our community, our school, our drug court, our law enforcement, and Evangel United Methodist Church. Our purpose is to positively connect with those who are misusing and abusing substances (drugs and alcohol) to bring about productive/useful lives, transform hearts, and most especially, grow the common good of the Beecher City area. We also purpose to reduce the misuse and abuse of those harmful substances.
We believe that...
- We have more in common than not,
- We are all experts in our own experience,
- We respect individual experiences and individual choices,
- We are free to choose our own path, and
- There is no one true way to do or be anything.
Part of the U Count 2 program involves active peer listening in our schools and in our community. Peer listening can be an early warning system to head off potentially more explosive problems. It is one more part of the safety net, along with adult guidance, to catch students who might not turn anywhere for help. U Count 2 is equipping peer listeners in our schools to be good listeners and to be good friends to all students. In the end, we want students to realize their common aspects and characteristics that they all share, versus their differences that are so often emphasized.
