Arts and Faith Sunday 2004

LCH’s Annual Arts and Faith Sunday is an opportunity to celebrate the role of the arts in shaping, expressing, and enriching our faith. This celebration on Sunday, February 15, included special music, poetry, drama, and displays of visual arts as we explored the theme “arts and faith.”

Members and friends look at the displays.

Over twenty members and friends shared their visual creative work. Numerous displays ringed the courtyard, hung from the rafters, and extended into the church. We all enjoyed the range of artistic expression—including drawings, paintings, woodwork, photography, and many craft media—a selected sample of which is shown here.

Judy Boutá (shown here with Assisting Pastor Fritz Frischel) displayed several of her pastels.


Stained glass panels of tropical flora frame a bonsai ponytail palm. Pastel/pencil portraits and an oil landscape are shown below (artists: Randy Castello, Jimmy Castro, Gayle Shine, Kelly Sueda).


Dragons and fish, houses and storms—drawings and paintings by LCH children contributed a special touch of spontaneity, color, and charm.
