Southside Church's Children's Ministry partnered with Rev. Stuart Jones and Habitat for Humanity of Spartanburg to offer a Snake Safety Family Show this past spring!
We had 40+ attendees from Southside, Habitat for Humanity of Spartanburg, Habitat for Humanity of Greenville, and the larger Spartanburg area. These families learned how to identify various snakes, make their yard a less desirable habitat for snakes, and respond appropriately if they spot a snake. Rev. Jones showed off many live snakes, including a large copperhead couple! After his presentation, children and parents had the opportunity to touch and hold some of the non-venomous snakes that he had brought with him.
Afterwards, everyone enjoyed some Krispy Kreme donuts, kindly donated by a couple who'd had their wedding reception in our church café right before the Snake Safety program! Shoutout to those amazing folks for that spontaneous act of giving!
