This past Saturday, AiM held its first ever painting night. I am by no means a painter, but I was surprised at how relaxing and easy it was to follow along as Jess taught the class. Jessica came into my office a few months ago with this idea in response to our church's budget crisis. Quietly, she explained to me her vision and her hopes that this would be a means in which she could serve to help raise funds for our church, regardless of how small the amount might be. She had never done this before, and it would be a challenge for her because it was outside her comfort zone, but she was following her conviction. I told her AiM would support her vision and this event, and left the rest into her hands. The first wine(less) and painting night was a blast and I must say that I never knew painting could be so relaxing and fun! I am thankful for people like Jess, who want to use their gifts and talents for God's church, and I'm thankful that we have a place where we can gather and fellowship in cool ways like this. We definitely want to have many more so I hope to see you at the next one!
