I have traveled to Nice, France last month for the Zonta International Women Empowerment Conference. The organization is over 64 years old.  Zonta is the leading global organization of professionals empowering women worldwide with a mission of service and advocacy.  Their vision is a world which women’s rights are recognized as human rights and every woman is able to achieve her full potential by having access to all resources and are represented in decision making positions on an equal basis with men.  Its member’s work with the United Nations (UN) and United Nations Children’s Fund (UNCF) and perform charity work worldwide.

I also got an opportunity to visit the National Marc Chagall Museum, created to bring together in one purpose-built place Marc Chagall most important biblical works.   His printings are from the Old Testament themes, Genesis and Exodus, & other religious inspirations.

Leaving Frances and after flying 17 hours in one day, I was very claustrophobic and suffered from jet lag. After a week of prayer my body was adjusting back to normal with the help of vitamin B-12.  Then, I got the news about the terror attack in Nice and it was on the streets that I have walked just one week ago.  I concluded, “God is not finished with me yet”.

Come and explore your creative side and meet wonderful people. We learn from each other.  Art is one of God's creative gifts to US.


We had 11 people attend the Art Expression Class last's Monday. The students are requesting that the Rock Church extend the class indefinitely. Therefore, I have agreed to keep hosting the Art Expression classes every other month always on a Monday at 1:00 to 3:00 pm.

This is the first time that many of these adults and seniors attended a class like this and they do not have to worry about the cost. That right, the classes are free to all. They can choose their form of Art, coloring water colors, pencils, etc. Acrylic paints are very expensive to provide the students. In fact one tube of acrylic paint the good quality kind cost $5.00 and we need the complete rainbow of colors. All of the Ministries at the Rock Church are self-sustaining meaning, "If the church population does not designate the funds they contribute to go to the Art Expression Classes, then the funds (supplies) are from the organizer, "are out of pocket." Because these classes will be ongoing, then new supplies must be purchased each week. The canvas boards used by the students must be replenished. We are honored to have 10 to 12 students every week and during the trial period, we had 30 students attend the classes and they love it. Some of the students even play Ping Pong after the class.

I see these adults intrigue with Art and are completely engaged in the process. They are keeping their minds sharp and having fun, asking a lot of questions and many of them heard about the Rock Church but this is the first time they are exposed to the church. The students come from very diverse backgrounds and they are making new friends with our members.

The Rock Church is doing important work here. Therefore, donations are the lifeline to this Adult Ministry, in its effort to be able to continue the attendees Spiritual growth using Art. Please feel free to attend the classes and donate what you can to keep this work progressing.

Your weekly contribution can be air marked for this Ministry by writing 2074gch –ch Senior Art ExpressionTherapy class on your check and donation envelop to ensure proper distribution of funds for the art classes.


During the class we listen to some cool jazz such as Kirk Whalum performing Babyface's Songbook and Tom Braxton classics of the Endless Highway, while the new artists in the room let their creative juices flow. The City Height Rock Church is a newly built facility with perfect lighting to paint or draw. The art classes are for Adults to enjoy these artistic experiences with the Rock Family! We are meeting every other month on Monday only from 1:00 to 3:00 pm.

Experience walking away with your own finished masterpiece in one session. Bring a friend. The cost is FREE! No experience necessary. Mediums: Acrylics, Coloring, Water Colors, Pencils, etc. Art supplies will be provided. Art supply donations needed. [email protected]
