Pour Les Enfants: A Silent Art Auction "For The Children"

On December 3, 2011, local artists will gather both individually and through participating churches in order to benefit the Crisis Pregnancy Center of Tidewater with their art.  Sovereign Grace Church’s Access group will host a silent auction for various pieces of art as well as provide live entertainment for a great evening out.

Why get involved?  Nate Bauers, a member of Sovereign Grace Church’s administrative team, explains the motivation behind the special evening.

“We decided to host an art auction because this is a great chance to tap into the artistic talents of folks in our churches and in the community.  It's a chance for them to use their artistic talents for the Lord and His purposes in our area.  Our goals for this event are to raise as much for CPC as possible, and to draw others into the mission of CPC and into a relationship with the Savior.  We chose to support CPC because they are a ministry that we, as a church, support and stand with, and we see how they truly are on the front lines of doing gospel work, justice work, and bringing about the reconciliation that Jesus accomplished and purchased for us.  We see how CPC impacts the community by their simple love for the hurting, the broken, and the helpless.  They are a light in a dark world, and bring much glory to God.”

“Our prayer is that attendees of this event would leave encouraged by what the CPC is doing, and would see the true work of Jesus and His Church through what we are doing...as well as leave with a great piece of art in their hands!”

This is an adult-only event held at Sovereign Grace Church with 100 percent of the auction proceeds going towards CPC.  For more information and to register online, visit www.sgconline.org/access.
