Pamela Smithsted - Oil Paintings
Exhibit from December 8th through January 26th
Pamela Smithsted, oil painter, lives on the Sandy River between Sandy and Welches. Endless inspiration for painting exists here, from pools in the back yard to panoramic vistas of the mountain. Pamela’s pursuit of painting began in 2000, when her three children had grown. Color, texture and light began to pop as she took time to be present with her surroundings. Please join us on Sunday, December 8th following worship for the Opening Reception for Pamela Smithsted. Refreshments will be served.
A New Chapter for Julia West!
As we look around the church, one of the most pressing needs in the city remains the need for affordable housing for those at risk. The congregation unanimously endorsed the disposition of the church’s Julia West site so that it can be redeveloped as affordable housing. For details, click this link for a background document. We look forward to a new chapter for Julia West, to broaden our heart for the city!
