May 18,2012 (La Mesa ) -- What is bullying? Why does it happen? Has it happened to you? What can be done about it? Who can help – and how? These are the questions the young people of the United Church of Christ of La Mesa (UCCLM) have been brainstorming on Sunday mornings, questions which sprang from class assignments, observation, personal encounter and the recognition that different school districts approach the problem differently – some aggressively, some only in response to specific incidents.
Now they are taking the next step – involving others in the discussion. At 10:00am on Sunday, May 27, 2012 the Youth of UCCLM will host “Rising Above Bullying…,” an interactive forum featuring open dialogue, role-playing and video clips. They invite you to join them and the members of their church for this special service - and to play an active role in the conversation.
UCCLM, an Open and Affirming church, is located at 5940 Kelton Avenue, La Mesa, CA 91942 (619-464-1519, www.ucclm.org). “Rising Above Bullying…” will be presented in the church’s Friendship Hall. All are welcome.
