Calvary’s Children’s Ministry held its first Jesus and Canvas event on November 18th. This was a free event and we had about 50 painters attend. Signups were provided prior to the event, as this assisted us in how much material we would need. The event focused on Bible themed verses and Nativity scene stencils for our attendees to paint from, as well as snacks for them to enjoy while they painted. We even made our own easels for our painters to use.
Our volunteers were eager to assist the painters, and many of our volunteers had an opportunity to paint a canvas as well. This was such a fun event with lots of laughter and wonderful paintings as a result. We had a range of talent involved with some of our painters doing freehand beautiful artwork while others were painting fun whimsical colors based on their chosen stencil. Our painters enjoyed the fellowship that was had and were creative in their artwork.
The planning behind Jesus and Canvas was done by the Children’s Ministry Team, many of whom also volunteered for the event itself. We had great fellowship as a team and worked well together to create this wonderful event. We would like to expand Jesus and Canvas to become an annual event and spread our audience to not only the church and school, but to the community as well.
