Art Needed for Sept Kid::Life Exhibit

This is the forth year we've hosted the KidsArt exhibit at LWCC featuring the Kid::Life students K-6th grade. It's always a very popular display of young artists' take on the theme "God Created..." It's loved by all!

We are in need of art work! If you have a child(ren) in the Kid::Life ministry that will be in Kindergarten through 6th grade starting this fall, we would love to have their original artwork as it fits into the theme. The deadline to submit art is August 8th. Exhibit runs Septebmer 4 through 25.

All artwork must be accompanied with the exhibit flyer (it is being handed out in the Kid::Life classrooms on Sundays). This flyer has all the necessary info you will need to participate. If you don't have one, please contact Cass Delp or Dawn Sterner.

We are looking forward to a full exhibit in September!

Grace & peace,

New Exhibit ~ John Bergmeier

This week I have the privilege of hanging the beautifully unique mixed media and printmaking artwork of Michigan artist, John Bergmeier.

The exhibit runs Sunday, July 17 through Sunday, August 28. Please stop by The Gallery @ Common Grounds Coffee Bar at LWCC and take in his story-like artwork. I encourage you to pick up a copy of the gallery companion booklet, The Heart Behind the Art, as he describes his creative journey and passion for his work.
As you can see, I am often times inspired by God’s word and am compelled to fill in some of the blanks in the Biblical stories. I call them Biblical stories, stories that are in the Bible, but do not intend to portray them as made up fiction. It is never my wish to reinterpret God’s word, but rather to make it more real and relatable to us as contemporary Christians. I am motivated to share the Gospel message and wish to move the hearts of all Christians to boldly confess the name of Jesus. God will always accomplish what He desires – to bring people to faith through the good news of Jesus Christ. Because of this we rejoice. ~ John Bergmeier, 2011
May you be inspired by the visual delights of this exhibit ~
Grace & peace,

This is beyond incredible. What a powerful way to share poetry. I'm blown away.

Hey ladies – if you like to write and be encouraged along the writer’s journey, you should check out (in)courage – click their logo above. What a cool web community for women writers.

I hope summer is allowing you time to write, to express that which is on your heart. I  know, it’s hard to find time with all the demands of our lives, but when I make a “date” with my writers voice I’m always left feeling blessed.

May you (and me) make a “date” and not stand ourselves up. God will meet you on the page.
