ADVENTING WITH ART
We are made in the image of God as creators. During Advent, as we wait upon the arrival of our God, we will explore our creativity through art in our church building, in our homes, at work, and yes, even in worship.
Advent Devotional - Beginning Nov 26, pick up your “Let There Be Color 2017 Advent Devotional." As an uncommon and interactive devotional, this tool offers an opportunity for all ages to reflect with gratitude, create your prayers, set goals, reflect on scripture, and engage in artistic expression taking only a few minutes each day.
The First Baptist Art Gallery - Beginning Dec 3 and throughout Advent, we will be displaying the First Baptist Art Gallery, incorporating art from our current and past congregation including some interactive pieces. Bring your artistic expressions for display including painting, sculpture, woven art, written art, and more!
“Seeking the Sacred” - On Dec 10, at 11:30 am immediately following worship, the Detroit Institute of Art brings to us “Seeking the Sacred” a presentation comparing different ways people throughout the world and at all time periods have used works of art to hold, communicate and reinforce ideas about religion, spirituality, and cosmology. All welcome.
Art in Worship - Adult coloring pages and colored pencils will be available during worship for those who pay attention best while doodling. Artistic expressions will be present and worked into the message as we celebrate what it means to be creators.
Family Christmas party will be on December 16 from 2 to 4 in the Hanson room. Snacks, games, crafts, sock exchange! Open to everyone in the church, all ages welcome!
