Church looking for Perry District artists

Emmaus Church is moving into the church building located at 1317 E. 12th Avenue - just off Perry Street. Pastor David Von said the congregation has been working hard to get ready for its first service on Sept. 12 at 10:03 a.m.
"We have spent a lot of time getting the place into shape, after we recently purchased the building," said Von. The church is a plant from New Community which is a non-denominational church currently located at Hamilton and Trent.
Why 10:03 a.m.?
Von laughs: "I spent a lot of time as a youth pastor and I know an unusual time will make it easier for people to remember when the service starts."
Von explains that it's the church's goal to create a community of people who will serve and give in the Perry-area.
"One of the things we'd like to do is hang local art in the church, and we're looking for artists in the Perry District," said Von. "We'd be open to hosting a show and it's okay with us if there are price tags on the paintings." Interested artists can contact Von via e-mail at:
