8th Annual Sacred Arts Festival and Open House
 

We were blessed by your prayers for our 8th Annual Sacred Arts Festival and Open House on June 21 and 22, 2008 and it was a wonderful festival indeed; (See pictures below). Even with the recent Midwestern states' flood problems and rising prices for travel, people came to be with us and hear the presentations and tours, and worship with us in St. Nicholas Church.

 

We have recorded the presentations, and soon they will be added and available to hear at our website.  Please keep us in your prayers, and know that we continue to pray for you.
