We are excited to announce that throughout November and December, we are showcasing a brand new exhibit entitled, “Treasures from Egypt, Israel, and Jordan”. Travel back in time for a glimpse of life in these fascinating, historic and biblical lands. This exhibit will feature objects, artifacts, photographs and collections from our member’s past trips over the years, including a 3,000 year old clay pot from Israel. As we prepare our hearts and minds for the season of Advent and Christmas, be sure to bring the whole family to see this captivating and educational exhibit. A very special thanks to Pastor Geib and Carol Esbenshade for their hard work and dedication in putting this exhibit together. To find the Art Hallway, just follow the signs past the coffee bar and then left after the Choir Room.
