IN HONOR OF
The children of God’s Garden have been encouraged to use the arts to communicate to the congregation this message of ending world hunger. This message can often be intellectually challenging. I feel the youth will rise to the occasion. The youth will be creating Heifer posters in church school.
The artwork will then be presented at the Heifer Exhibit on Youth Sunday. The opportunity to purchase the artwork as a fund raiser will also take place, proceeds to go to Heifer International. We invite the congregation to visit and enjoy the exhibit with open hearts and be part of the fund raiser!
GUIDELINES FOR THE ART WORK
Founded by United Church of Christ and American Baptist Churches, USA, Andover Newton prepares women and men for faithful and effective pastoral leadership wherever they are called in the world or in the church. Many areas pastors and graduates of Andover Newton and a number of our Christian Education Directors have come from their program. In addition to its traditional role, the school also offers our church many resources in the form of speakers, conferences, and training sessions which keep us up-to-date in the field.
Founded in 1814, Bangor Theological Seminary is an ecumenical seminary in the Congregational tradition of the United Church of Christ. Its primary mission is preparation for Christian ministry. The seminary has an innovative program known as the “Bangor Plan” which allows for ministerial training to persons who do not have a college degree. After two years in the liberal studies program, the participant may enter the Master of Divinity program of study; and, once completed, he or she is able to work as a minister while completing the undergraduate degree.
