Create in Community
Sundays | April 12 - May 31 | 9:40 - 10:45 am | Room 243 | Cost $10
We will once again offer a Sunday morning creative group experience. From April 12 - May 31 you are invited to ‘create in community’ during the Sunday School hour. Creative expression as a prayer form is an ancient practice for contemporary life. The purpose is not to create a ‘pretty picture,’ but to express the inner stirrings of the Holy Spirit in your life. Because most of us are less familiar with artistic media than we are with words, God is able to ‘get a Word in edgewise’ to us through this method of praying. We will provide paper, canvas, paint, markers, pencils, brushes - all necessary supplies will be provided. Artistic talent is not required, just an openness to the stirrings of the Holy Spirit. Create in Community is open to everyone age 16 and up. The cost for Create in Community is $10.00. Reservations are requested as space is limited. For more information, please contact Carol McPherson at or 673-3641.
