This year we are excited to announce a faith and art series for Lent. Come and see some of your favorite stories come alive. Explore the symbolism beyond the biblical story that can add deep meaning to paintings and other works of art. Grow in your faith each week as we focus on a different biblical story and work of art. The final week we will create one large community art piece (no talent needed). The series will begin on Wednesday, March 6th at 7 pm and then continue on Tuesday starting March 12th at 6:30 pm through Easter Sunday. Tuesday midweek will offer family friendly meals available beginning at 6 pm with vegetarian and gluten-free option available.
