ArtPrize Events and Install

Monroe Community ChurchEvents, News

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.
