January 2019, as our small group of concerned citizens walked through the old St. Anthony's community center, Therese came upon this mural that had been painted on the wall of the gymnasium. Looking closer, she realized that it was the exact image of the mission statement they had been working on. "Let the children come unto Me," said Jesus. The sun shining out from the clouds unto the old St. Anthony's community center, through the children standing alongside the building united in their impact for good for the community below. This mural was the turning point in her heart + mind as Therese realized that this would be a wonderful center for the foster care community of support they were hoping to build.
Since the child care center renovations are in full swing on the main floor, it was time to move our fellowship area up into the gorgeous, second floor sanctuary. Thank you Curtis Bellows + Northern Bedrock Historical Preservation crew for the fine craftsmanship and detail in preserving the artistry in this beautiful meeting space. Come see us soon!
