Summit United Methodist Church is excited to announce:
Our first call for artwork!
Summit on 16th is a spiritual home to all. We are a diverse group of Christian people who work to break down barriers of exclusion and to welcome, honor and nurture all people. Compassion and a commitment to social justice drive our mission to encourage spiritual transformation and to provide service to those in need. Love in service underscores all that we do, from worship to community outreach.
The Season of Lent marks the forty days prior to Easter. For centuries, it has been a special season in the Christian year for inward reflection and prayer. At Summit on 16th, we will be using this season to take a JOURNEY INWARD, to examine our own hearts and lives, to share our stories and our struggles, to listen and learn from our diverse backgrounds and experiences, and to discover anew the redeeming grace of Jesus. During this season, we will be inviting artwork that exemplifies the theme of introspection, of journeying inward to explore our own identities and our connection to each other and to God.
Submitted artwork will hang in the hallways and group spaces at Summit on 16th beginning on Easter Sunday.
The exhibition is open to two-dimensional works, ready to hang, and suitable for public viewing. Size constraints are 4′ x 4′ and no more than 50 lbs. More than one piece may be accepted. With each artwork submission, please include:
