A Celebration of Creativity

For six weeks this summer, Decatur First United Methodist Church is embracing, encouraging, and celebrating the beauty that comes from creativity. We will highlight and engage various arts in Sunday morning worship, Sunday afternoon events, and small group activities for children and adults on Wednesdays. We want to amplify the way that we can Grow, Connect, Live, Sculpt, Share and Celebrate through gardening, baking, music, theater, poetry, photography, painting, sketching, quilting, knitting, sculpting, and more.
