The Perfect Gift

Come celebrate the Light of the World!

This event is a wonderful time for the whole family. There are plenty of things to do, and see. Invite your friends, neighbors, and family!

Share Your Artwork!

The Perfect Gift's theme this year is "The Light of the World" and we want your creative expression of what that means to you! So get your creative juices going, and create a 2D piece of art designed around "the Light of the World". We will be displaying the art at the Perfect Gift event on December 9th, and we encourage all artists from High School age up, to submit work. Sign up to submit artwork below! 

Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” – John 8:12
