April 13, 2015

The Outdoor Wilderness Learning (OWL) Center, nestled in 800 acres of rolling hills in Ruston, is a ministry of Louisiana United Methodist Children and Famiy Services, Inc.

The program is designed to benefit youth and families served through the La. Methodist Children's Home with the use of dynamic, outdoor activities that promote team building and self-esteem.

Screamin' OWL salsas and jellies are products that are created, cooked and canned by the home's staff and volunteers; the sale of these products support the ministry of the OWL Center.

Take a moment to read this story about how Rev. Warren Clifton, pastor of Faith Crossing UMC in Walker, was able to make a connection with Imperial Sugar in Gramercy that resulted in a donation of 2.8 tons of sugar for use in the production of OWL jellies.
