Call for submissions: for DOE 2018
We would like to invite any congregational members who are avid photographers, poets or spoken word artists to contact the NADC consultant about submitting their work to be used and/or displayed for that day. We are looking to display art from our own members in the atrium at the King's University, much like we did last year with the Mustard Seed art. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Jesse at 780-819-7488 to inquire.
