TUPPERS PLAINS — October was breast cancer awareness month, and the United Methodist Women (UMW) of St. Paul United Methodist Church of Tuppers Plains, held their first Susan G. Komen Worship In Pink service on Sunday, Oct. 18.
Worship in Pink is a health program for congregations of all faiths, and another effort by Susan G. Komen for the Cure to increase breast cancer awareness. The service also helps link women to resources by providing an informational packet.
The service was a time to honor and celebrate survivors and to remember those who were lost to the disease. Pink ribbons and literature dominated St. Paul that day, and the UMW were in pink attire. A special offering was collected during the service and pink refreshments were served after the service.
