All are welcome to join us for Churches United’s 53rd Annual Delegate Assembly on March 27 at 7:00 p.m. at Bettendorf Presbyterian Church, 1200 Middle Rd.
Learn about Churches United’s ministries and our accomplishments in the past year. Come and join us for an interesting, inspirational gathering!
Our featured speaker will be Rev. Dr. James A. Forbes:
*Senior Minister at the Riverside Church, New York.
*President of the Healing of the Nations Foundation
*Hailed by Newsweek magazine as one of the 12 “most effective preachers” in the English-speaking world
Churches United is trying to engage the faith community and the art community together. Through this new endeavor, there are some Christian artists of faith who will be sharing some of their artworks at the Delegate Assembly. They are:
Ted McElhiney, sculptor and painter, whose life-sized portrait of Bix Beiderbecke is one of his most recognized works.
William Karl Smith, conceptual sculptor, whose spiritual themes are prominent.
Kimberlyn Aust, Bettendorf photographer, whose Redemption and Grace series has been called “thought-provoking, meditative and moving.”
Once the Delegate Assembly is over, the artists, along with other Christian artists, will move their works to the Bucktown Center for the Arts, for a showing called Expressions of Faith – 2D & 3D Art on March 28.
