The FUMCOR Social Concerns Committee wants everyone to know that Anderson County is currently struggling with the issue of book banning. A small group of persons in our community is seeking to ban books which present LGBTQ families in a neutral or positive light. There is a public forum to discuss these issues on Monday, March 27 from 6 to 9 pm at the Clinton Community Center.

Our Social Concerns Committee members want to encourage everyone for whom this is a passionate topic to prayerfully consider attending the gathering. If you have questions, you may contact the Committee Co-Chairs, Becky and Greg Smith at

It is important for us to support the Anderson County Library Board’s process and fight against those who want to circumvent the safeguards that are in place for public discussion.
