GIVING BACK TO THE CHURCH COMMUNITY

Spiritual Journaling - Using a wide variety of art techniques, participants will each create a personal journal reflecting the connection between our inner creativity and our spiritual connection with God.   Absolutely no talent is required and there is no reading or homework outside of class.   Join us for this relaxing time as we strengthen our relationships with God through art.

Monday – 10:00 – 11:30 (led by Donna Reed Nichols) As a way of giving back to MDUMC, our studio services are being donated for this popular program which has been expanded to ten weeks.  While normal tuition will not be charged, a $50 fee to cover supply costs will be requested.
