Community Arts Celebration--Friday, October 3 First United Methodist Church is inviting groups and organizations from around the city of Omaha, including the many community groups who have met in our building, to a festive event celebrating the opening of the new Commons. This will be an opportunity for those who have not yet seen the space to experience it, and also for members of the church to experience beautiful art and inspiring music while meeting new friends from the larger community.The event begins with a juried art show from 6:00-7:00 pm. A call has gone out for artists to create and display works around the theme of “Shine Forth,” and they have responded with a fantastic array of works on that theme.At 7:00 pm, an intergenerational musical theater piece will be performed, featuring our own Chancel Choir and also members of the church and other community groups who have together created their own theatrical interpretations of the “Shine Forth” theme. The one-act show will be entertaining, fun, and thought-provoking, and is appropriate for all ages.No tickets are needed; the event is free and open to anyone.
