missouri united methodist church

GreenHouse Theatre Project Artistic Director, ELIZABETH BRAATEN PALMIERI, invites everyone to come see her "unusual" take on the story of Frankenstein! The classic monster tale turns 200 years old this year, and so while you think you may know it by heart, you have yet to see Elizabeth's immersive, multimedia adaptation! Plus, AMY CROUSORE invites all middle and high school-aged children to come play the organ at Missouri United Methodist Church this Saturday! 'Pedals, Pipes and Pizza' is a free event that aims to introduce the young, and the young-at-heart, to the "king of instruments." [5:06] April 9, 2018

 Boxes of tissues lined the sanctuary of Missouri United Methodist Church on Saturday morning, but laughter frequently filled the air as family, friends and community members gathered to remember Columbia educator Eliot Battle.

Battle died in June from injuries sustained in a car accident, and he is most remembered for his role in desegregating Columbia’s public schools. The city’s newest high school is named after his wife.
