Children and adults stepped up over the weekend in a march for peace sponsored by a children’s ministry at Fourth Street United Methodist Church on Aurora’s near East Side.
The procession marched down to Lebanon Park and returned to the church, where it concluded with a free lunch at the church.
The march sponsor was Aurora Shalom Ministries Kids Club, an evening recreation program for neighborhood children. Shalom partnering churches include Fourth Street United Methodist, Wesley Methodist and Bethany Methodist, all in Aurora.
