12 Week Workshop.
No Class on 4/22 for Easter.
6/17 is last session.
6/24 is a post-class gathering (optional).

This workshop is aimed at freeing your creativity. Discover (or rediscover) your creative self! Yes, you can! This 12-week workshop is based on "The Artist's Way" book by Julia Cameron. Join in readings, discussions, and, yes, art-making! Will include coloring, painting, jewelry, mosaics, watercolors, oil pastels, mixed media, scratch art and much, much more!

Because of the book's fabulous content, we wanted to offer this opportunity to others in our circles. Especially those who feel “creatively blocked.” Self-care is the focus of the course...suggesting that you to take yourself on little creative adventures for 1....known as “Artist Dates”… it’s just an eye opening experience!

The art projects each week are simplistic - intended to "stir" the creative process...there is no formal art instruction. Instead, participants will explore different mediums and materials as "play." The focus of the artwork is NOT the final product but on the “process” of creating something and being unblocked. It involves fellowship, discussion and reflection about what we are learning in the book.

Have a couple of conflicts during the course of the workshop? No problem, you can miss a couple classes and still be able to function, as long as you're reading the book.

Workshop Fee - $100 (includes materials for each week's art projects). The proceeds benefit Sozo/Peace by Piece Ministries. Why are we charging? We have expenses (materials, space, advertising).... but know we're not charging for our time. The book can be bought on Amazon for under $20 or found at used book stores.

*Are you struggling to the point where $100 is not possible? Indicate your need for a scholarship (and what you can afford) by emailing jess@peacebypieceministries.org for other arrangements. Our mission is serve all who have a strong desire to participate!!!

Lockport City Blessing & Prayer Walk

Dear Prayer Warriors,

On Tuesday September 25th at 6:30pm we will be doing our annual prayer walk where we will go throughout our city and pray for our community. We will meet at Central Square 222 E 9th Street, Lockport in the third floor Council Chamber.

From there, will be briefed and divide up into groups of 2 and 3 to walk or drive to various parts of our city to pray for that part. Some groups will go to schools, others neighborhoods, others churches, some businesses, as well as our police department, etc..

We will pray throughout the city for about an hour and then meet back at Central Square Council Chamber to share some of our experiences.

In the past there has always been some wonderful encounters with God’s Spirit!

Please share this announcement with your church or group and invite everyone to join us in an evening where we bathe our city in prayer.

The Watering Hole is a gathering of women.

As we worship the Lord, we step into his amazing Presence.  A speaker shares and teaches.  Afterwards, there is ministry time.  Each get-together is unique and precious

The Watering Hole is pleased to welcome our very own Paulette Horvath.

Paulette has been teaching from the Heart of God for many years. Her teachings are anointed to impart wisdom and revelation. She comes prepared with a Now Teaching and a Prophetic Word. Her teaching refreshes, renews, and restores. Her ministry brings healing and deliverance.  The Lord has used her to teach, preach, prophesy and encourage the Body of Christ in the US and internationally. She is a lighthouse for the Kingdom of God. Paulette leads the Body to safety and direction during the storms of life. Come and let your heart be set free.

Peace by Piece Frankfort

JUNE 19TH-AUGUST 7TH
MONDAY EVENINGS @ 7:00pm-9:00pm (8 WEEKS)
EVILENA'S RED DRESSER- FRANKFORT

Peace by Piece creators Dee Everson & Jenny Spontak will be leading this class.

Take a journey that explores how your relationship with Jesus will lead to a discovery of God’s intentional and beautiful design for your life! You will learn the basics behind the art of mosaics as you create your own keepsake mosaic charger plate throughout this 8-week class on Monday evenings. You will see how God uses all the broken pieces of your life to create His masterpiece–you! There will be 4-5 lessons each week to study and this will help you to begin the discipline of journaling. $80 fee covers all costs: a keepsake journaling workbook, project materials, stained glass, and tools. There will also be a private Facebook group (optional) for participants to share/learn/ask questions. 

Don't know much about the Bible? Then this IS the study for you!
**There will be no class on July 3rd in observance of Independence Day.
