A ONE-DAY ADVENT WORKSHOP

Our Liturgical Arts Team, co-chaired by Lura Currie and Jill Dyer, has been busy making plans for the upcoming Advent Season.  How may we express the good news of the anticipated birth of the Christ Child using our artistic gifts and talents?  We have three exciting opportunities for all budding artists and/or collectors to enrich the worship experience of all during the Advent Season!
