And It Was Good Art Event
September 11, 2022 @ 11:30 am – 1:30 pm
Hosted by Creation Care and Climate Justice Working Group, this event encourages the entire congregation and friends of the First Pres community to intentionally engage with nature and create tangible expressions of the blessings they received during those experiences.
At the event, together we will reflect on these blessings by viewing featured individual and collaborative art pieces from members and friends of our church family. There will also be an opportunity to meet and greet several of the artists.
Event will be held on Plaza and in Calvin Hall.
Ways to participate and contribute to the event:
Collaborative Art Piece (Make submission by August 22)
We invite everyone to be an integral part of this art event. To make a submission, all you need to do is take a few moments to sit or walk outside while intentionally focusing on the natural wonders that God blesses you with during that time. You can do this alone or with a friend or as a family. Then, either take a photo, make a sketch, or even write a short poem that flows from that experience.
Send your submissions to Amanda Lucas at [email protected] by August 22.
Cookies and Cupcakes for Creation Care
We are all uniquely created by God to be creative in our own unique way. For some it’s through a camera, a canvas, or clay or cloth. For others it’s a culinary creation!Celebrate God’s good creation by sharing your favorite baked good. Nothing says welcome and fosters community like sharing homemade (or someone-made) goodies.
Please bring 1-2 dozen treats to the Plaza on Sunday, September 11, between 10–10:40 am. You will be able to fill out your very own “exhibit label” with the name of your creation (and if there are nuts or made gluten free, etc.).
Opportunities to Serve
Another way to contribute to this event is through your gift of time. Servers are needed to:
-Receive and distribute Cookies, Cupcakes and other Culinary Creations to the serving tables prior to the worship service
