We’d love to have you join us for our 11th Annual Mission Art Gala!
Date and Time: Saturday, April 13 at 6:00 p.m.
What to Expect: Each year for the past decade, CCC has hosted an Art Gala fundraiser, the proceeds of which have gone to support various missional efforts in our community and around the globe.
Come and peruse the art, bid on pieces in the auditorium, sample wonderful food and drinks in the lobby, and drop your kids off at the Kids Zone (details below). Dozens and dozens of pieces of art – from those created by children, to fine art by some of the best in our community – will be available for purchase, some by silent auction and some by live auction that takes place around 7:00 p.m.
Admission: FREE! (but we’d unashamedly love for you to be generous with any bids you make)
The Beneficiary of This Year’s Proceeds: This year, we are excited to have Jared and Megan Hood be the beneficiaries of our Art Gala Fundraiser! Later this year, the Hoods will be returning to Tanzania, a nation near and dear to their hearts, to serve as leaders of a TIMO (Training in Ministry Outreach) team through Africa Inland Mission. The purpose of TIMO teams such as theirs is to “train gospel-centered teams from the global church to plant reproducing churches.” So Jared and Megan will lead a team for a few years, helping their team members learn how to build relational bridges, learn a language, function on a team, and much more! Their long-term goal is to be part of church-planting work among an unreached people group, and their hope is that many of their TIMO team members will be stay beyond their first term to be part of that long-range mission together.
As you can imagine, moving a family across an ocean and into a new culture and climate is expensive. So all of the funds raised at this year’s Art Gala will be given to the Hoods to help with with these costs. It’s our joy to help make their transition as smooth as possible! So we’d love for you to donate pieces, join us for the event, and generously bid on items.
Submitting Pieces for the Event: If you are an artist who’d like to submit a piece (or multiple pieces) for the Art Gala, you can drop them off at the church any Sunday morning at the Welcome Center in the lobby, or any weekday from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. in the church office. Art submissions can be in any medium (painting, sculpting, pottery, wood-working, photography, drawing, metal work, graphic design, etc.), and should be display-ready to be auctioned off to the highest bidder during the Art Gala. Each artist will need to fill out an Registration Form for each piece submitted. The deadline for submissions will be April 11.
KidsZone: This year we’ll have various artistic crafts and projects that kids can do in our children’s wing from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m., while parents look at the artwork and enjoy food/drinks. The KidsZone will be for those who are at least three years of age and potty trained, up through fourth graders.
