Feast: Call for Submissions
Writers, visual artists, laity! You are invited to submit work for the next edition of Feast, our community's art publication. Deadline for submissions is 9 p.m. on the first Saturday of every third month (March, June, September, December).
Currently soliciting the congregation to send written or visual submissions inspired by:
1)Current or Past Sermon Series: How has that sermon played out in your life since hearing that sermon? How have you seen it played out in the lives of your various communities (small groups, tribes, cliques, various ministry communities)?
2) Perennial Themes of the Christian life: Redemption, Incarnation, Sacrifice, Wandering / Wilderness, Pilgrimage, Virtue, Restoration, Creation, Community, Hope, Beauty, Poverty, Communion, Fellowship, Love, Charity, Kingdom of Heaven, etcetera.
The art magazine "Feast" allows the community its own artistic, resonant voice within the ongoing church dialectic, providing a very tangible way of taking such outside the walls of the church.
Send submissions in rtf, or (preferably) Google Doc format.
Visual art and photography on the same general themes. Jpeg and PDF formats, your choice of pixel size.
See www.Hope.org for past sermon recordings and notes.
Submit work via email to: Kevin Daniel.

Hope Art Sanctuary Exhibit: "Intercession : Şefaat"
Sunday, September 11, debuted the new Sanctuary Gallery exhibit: “Intercession : Şefaat”.
In a collaborative effort the Hope Chapel Arts Ministry has partnered with the recent Short-Term Turkey Mission Team to produce an exhibit aimed at drawing our congregational body together in unified and ongoing prayer for our Turkey Mission.
The show will feature photography by Whitney Crowley, with a newly painted art wall by Micheal Wall. Our newly instated Gallery Manager, Courtney Daniel, has also brought her renowned art cards to the exhibit. Those cards will be found available around the foyer and sanctuary, and they make great prayer reminders and bookmarks.
The Gallery Manager and Short Term Team would like to recognize the supportive labor of Ceci Proeger, our newly appointed Missions Director, in her enthusiasm for and assistance in hanging the show. Likewise, thanks go out to our Studio Manager, Tildon Humphries, who also has brought his labor and invaluable insights to the hanging efforts.
Our featured photographer Whitney Crowley’s artist statement is found here.
HOPE COFFEE SHOP GALLERY NOW OPEN
