Feb Gallery Installation: Eric Smith, Nature Photographer
Feb 1 – Feb 27 all-day

In the ‘dead of winter’ Eric Smith, photographer – will be with us to share the breathtaking ‘personality’ of some of God’s most amazing creatures. Join us for:

  • BYOB Gallery Reception and Reflections with the artist – Friday, Feb 09, 7 pm.
  • ARTChurch with the artist – Sunday, Feb 18, 10 am.

From the Artist: “The photos in this collection are meant to draw you into the natural world of New England, give you a glimpse into the lives of the wild animals that live there.  An amazing variety of animals surround us; these photos will introduce you to many of them.

One of my passions is telling stories through my pictures.  I love capturing that magic moment that expresses the animals’ character and transports you into their world. When I’m out in nature and I see these creatures, it revitalizes me; when I share my pictures I invite others into my experience.

I hope my photos bring the viewer into the scene and closer to these animals, to share in my joy of discovery. May you be as inspired as I am by these creatures – and may they appreciate them and love them as much as I do.”

Ancient, Wild and Courageous | Faith and Film
Feb 2 @ 6:30 pm – 9:30 pm

This month’s film deftly balances dark themes and fantastical elements to deliver an engrossing and uncommonly moving entry in the crowded coming-of-age genre.

In this visually spectacular drama a tween deals with his mother’s illness, a less-than-sympathetic grandmother and bullying classmates. He finds a most unlikely ancient, wild, and relentless ally that guides him on a journey of courage, faith, and truth.

“…a work of lovely darkness.”

“…a portrait of coping that’s both fascinating and heartbreaking.”

“…an engrossing tragic fantasy, sustained by genuine sentiment.”

“Evocative, mysterious and shot through with bruising humor and heartbreak… gets you where you live. There’s real magic in it. “


Chad & Anna Kidd will lead the discussion. BYOB. Bring your own beer, wine or soda and experience the places where Pop culture meets our faith. We will watch a current film followed by a discussion about themes of morality, faith, and humanity led by local theologians and community leaders.

This Film Screening and Discussion are free – suggested $10.00 donation is welcomed.
