Humblebee Afternoon Art Classes
Mar
26
to May 14

Humblebee Afternoon Art Classes

This class teaches step by step drawing, illustration style, and special mixed media projects.  The subjects of the drawings are quirky and fun, and usually involve animals.  The student will learn to be kinder and more accepting of their art work, and less perfectionistic.  They will learn to look at mistakes as opportunities, and learn how to adjust their drawings accordingly. This class not only teaches drawing skills and art concepts, but is a great confidence builder and teaches how to fully develop a drawing to its potential.  The kids come out of this class with a new pride and a new perception of themselves as an artist.  There may be a special project added if time allows. 
Tuesdays from 2:45-3:45om, 8 weeks, $130, beginning March 26th. Contact Heather to sign up.

Storytelling Show Featuring Andy Offutt Irwin

We are so excited to welcome Andy Offutt Irwin, story-telling singer song-writer extraordinaire, on March 30 in the Neighborhood Church Sanctuary. You can purchase tickets here! Tickets will also be available at the door!

About Andy:
Andy’s character-filled, one-person shows and storytelling performances center around the adventures of his eighty-five-year-old-widowed-newly-minted-physician-aunt, Marguerite Van Camp, a woman who is keeping her finger on the pulse of the changing world around her as she seeks to grow – even at her advanced age – in these United States and the New South. Every show includes original songs, and of course, whistling. Please note, Andy’s grown-up shows are family friendly.

Evensong & Eucharist: Amplifying Queer Voices in Worship

Evensong & Eucharist: Amplifying Queer Voices in Worship

Join us for a night of poetry, scripture, music, & Madonna.

On the eve of the our observance of Palm Sunday, we're holding an Evensong & Eucharist worship service featuring the music of Madonna. This concert-style service will feature local musicians and focus on queer artistic expression - voices that have historically been silenced by the Christian church.

We hope you'll join us.
___
Madonna is the poster child for someone who has been condemned, criticized, and censored by the Church. Madonna has been an icon in the gay community for over three decades. She was outspoken about the need for HIV/AIDS research funding when other mainstream artists and celebrities were silent, brought queer culture and art to a wide audience and advocated for safer sex practices in her concerts when the subject was taboo. Through her long history in the spotlight, she's also received criticism for cultural appropriation, fertilization of gay culture, and other controversial issues. We'll explore her art and controversy - her activism and shortcomings as we celebrate the queer voice in worship.
