ArtPrize Events and Install

ArtPrize is an outstanding way to Love God, Love People, and Love the City, as well as introducing MCC to many artists and art-lovers. What outreach-oriented church wouldn’t want 3,500 – 4,000 people walking through its doors in a three-week period? Past volunteers report having had fun meeting and greeting people. It also doesn’t hurt to hear a lot of compliments about the artwork, our building, and our ministry in Monroe North! People check us out as a result of ArtPrize, which has proven to be a means for MCC to demonstrate that we are welcome representatives of the Church of Jesus.

Install Day is Saturday, September 9. 

  • We’d love for 8 people to sign up to help greet artists and carry, load, or assist artists from 9 a.m. – Noon and stay for lunch Noon – 1pm.
  • We’d love for 8 people to come for lunch at Noon – 1pm and stay to help in the same way until 4 pm or until we are done.
