See Christ Here event

At the start of 2019, we asked members of the community to keep their eyes open for signs of God’s presence in their lives — in big moments and little ones, in creation, alone or with other people, or wherever else they sensed “divine fingerprints.”

Now, we want to invite you to see a whole gallery of those moments, captured in photographs, poetry, paintings and our reflections on seeing God in those everyday situations, at a special open house event, with more than 100 individual pieces to see.

Join us for a free open-house-style gallery event with light refreshments, visual arts, quiet space for your own reflection and more, on one of these two dates:

• 3 to 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 26, at Hope Lutheran Church, 35 Ridge Ave., Homer City

• 3 to 7 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 27, at New Life Lutheran Church, 1209 Leroy Road, between Marion Center and Dixonville

There is no charge to come, but we invite your donations of canned or other nonperishable food that will go to local ICCAP-affiliated food banks in Homer City and Marion Center.

Can’t come in person? Check out our growing online gallery of Christ-sightings by searching for #seeChristhere on social media.
