OPEN DOORS: ART IN ACTION

In the Parish Hall, located downstairs from the church, we have a new gallery exhibit space that is open to the public! Started in Spring of 2018, the gallery exhibits work by local visual artists, and musicians, while partnering with area non-profits to raise awareness of social, environmental, and justice issues in our community and around the world.
