Creativity Expo 2017 - Oct. 28 and 29
Creativity Expo 2017 - Where Art and Spirit Meet
SFBC Creativity Week is October 22 – 29
By Nancy Roberts-Brown
More than 60 SFBC members and friends will share their creativity with our congregation and community during the 2017 Creativity Expo – Where Art and Spirit Meet. The week’s events include October 22 and 29 adult education panels (see the Adult Learning article in this Spire), interactive African drumming led by Darren Hochstedler’s spouse John Bumanglag at the October 25 Wednesday night dinner, and an October 29 worship service featuring a video of seven SFBC members sharing on how spirituality and creativity intersect in their own lives. A video of children engaged in a Godly Play lesson will also be shown, and children will share in improvised dance. Amazingly intricate and beautiful paper-cut banners created by Dave Roberts will adorn the sanctuary.
The weekend of October 28 and 29 will showcase a remarkable range of visual and performance art. Beginning on Saturday afternoon and continuing through Sunday afternoon, Fellowship Hall and the Parlor will be filled with displays of painting, wood carving, hand-made jewelry, quilts and other fabric art, hand-made greeting cards and photography. Performances on Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon will include stand-up comedy, singing, poetry reading, storytelling, dramatic presentations, and instrumental music. You will discover that we have a stunningly talented and creative congregation.
Please plan to share in this event. It is not too late to sign up to participate, and please feel welcomed and encouraged to do so. There are registration forms at the Welcome Table, or call the church office and let them know of your interest. And, above all, please plan to attend.
