Ladies’ Group Enjoys Painting Class

FoxValley_inlineEAST DUNDEE, Ill.—The ladies at Fox Valley Baptist Church assembled for a painting party. After rekindling a love of painting this summer, organizer Amber Burger thought a painting class would be a fun group activity.

Burger, who has a background in art, taught the class. The subject of the painting was Psalm 46:10—”Be still and know that I am God”—and featured a blue cross on a modeled tan and gold background.

Burger taught the painting process step by step, but the ladies were allowed to interpret her instructions in their own creative ways. “So many unique variations resulted, just as God created each of us with our own individual characteristics,” she says, being reminded of Ephesians 2:10: “For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.”

After the success of this first paint night, a second class with a new painting will be planned soon.
