Friday, June 22, 2018
Ascension Lutheran Church will hold an open house and reception to view a traveling art exhibit titled The Discombobulated Church: A Humorous and Challenging Art Exhibit on the Contemporary Church on July 19 from 7-9 p.m. There is no cost to attend, however a $5 per adult donation is requested. All donations will go to fund the Milagro Women’s Center in Guatemala City, Guatemala.
 
This insightful art exhibit consists of 14 pen and ink images by Trey Everett of what the church is and can be.
The exhibit is designed to be thoughtful, introspectiv and motivating to parishioners and the church body as a whole. Displayed next to each image is a short commentary with questions to ponder and discuss. The hope is that this unique exhibit will be a spring board for your church to contemplate, discuss and make choices that reflect what a healthy spiritual community truly is," organizers said.
 
The Milagro Women’s Center is an outreach of the Augustana Lutheran Church of Guatemala (ILAG). The Milagro Women’s Center provides housing, community life and tuition for girls and women from rural communities in Guatemala to pursue secondary education in Guatemala City 
 
Ascension Lutheran Church, founded in 1913, was Chattanooga’s first English speaking Lutheran Church. Today Ascension is a part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, a fellowship of 5 million Christians in the United States and one of the largest Protestant denominations in the United States.
 
Ascension Lutheran Church is located at 720 S. Germantown Road in the City of East Ridge.
