“Celebrating the Church of the Brethren’s 300th Anniversary in 2008″
(March 17, 2008) — The Association for the Arts in the Church of the Brethren (AACB) is sponsoring a children’s art exhibit for the 300th Anniversary celebration at the 2008 Annual Conference in Richmond, Va., in July. The theme for the exhibit is, “Show Us What Life Looks Like When God Is Important.”
The association invites children, age pre-school through grade 5, to submit a drawing for the exhibit. “We are hoping to include children in Conference as much as possible and this is just one way that we feel it can be done,” said Leslie Lake, of the 300th Anniversary Committee, and liaison with the AACB.
Drawings should depict the theme, and should be done in crayon, paint, chalk, etc. The size of the drawings should be 8 1/2 by 11 inches. Only one entry per child will be accepted. Entries should be mailed by July 1 to Leslie Lake, P.O. Box 73, Orrville, OH 44667; or sent with congregational delegates to the Conference in Richmond, Va., and hand-delivered to the AACB exhibit area by Saturday afternoon, July 12.
