Now that September has finally arrived, I am excited to announce our first CCA arts ministry event for the year! We are going to be meeting on Friday, September 18th, from 7-9pm at the Wayne United Methodist church. This will be a time for us all to share our diverse artistic gifts with one another in a very informal and hopefully non-threatening environment. Since I anticipate we will have a small group, we will primarily be meeting in the parlor area, but we will have access to the sanctuary in case anyone wants to use the piano or needs a larger area for dancing (At the moment, I have the sanctuary reserved on the WUMC schedule, and I think the parlor is also available but am just waiting for confirmation. I don't think it should be a problem, but if so, we will just meet in the sanctuary the whole time instead).
Please do let me know as soon as possible if you would like to participate in this event (email me here). Also, please note, you are more than welcome to come, but not share anything if you don't feel comfortable. Furthermore, I am not thinking of this necessarily as a "talent show" where we are all presenting polished finished works. I really want this to be a time where we can engage with one another in our various disciplines at whatever stage we are at. Don't feel like you can't share something because it isn't "ready" yet. I would like to have a short discussion after each presentation, where we can all offer our thoughts on the work, but please remember to keep all comments constructive and considerate.
Please let me know if you can join us (and whether or not you would like to share something) by September 11th, if possible. Also, I'd love to have some very light snacks (and we can make coffee and tea at the church), so please let me know if you'd be willing to bring something to share. Thank you!
