Mindful Art Program with CREATE Community Studios (grades 6-12)
Art is the perfect way to practice mindfulness in ways you may not expect. We’ll investigate a new art technique each week that helps build on mindfulness basics to help us learn how to be present in the moment, increase self-awareness, resilience, and self-compassion. This is a 4-week program, Sundays 4:00-5:30 PM on March 6, 13, 20 & 27th. The group will meet in Fellowship Hall. Friends are welcome to enroll.
No art experience necessary! Projects will appeal to all ages.
($30/per student; family max of $50)
The cost of this program is $60 per student; CCRC will pay a portion of the fee for every youth participant.
There are limited spaces for this program. Please reserve your space by Thursday, February 24th by emailing Kelly at firstname.lastname@example.org
The program facilitator will be Heather Hutchison. Heather is Co-Founder & Executive Director of CREATE Community Studios, an expressive arts non-profit dedicated to using art to promote freedom of expression, personal growth and community connection. CREATE focuses on bringing the arts to under-served and marginalized communities with a focus on community art and using art to enhance wellness & self-expression.

Orange Farm Tuition Fundraiser
Our annual fundraiser for Orange Farm will run until Easter Sunday, April 17, 2022.
A $25 contribution allows a child in Orange Farm to attend school for a full
year. Please make your checks payable to CCRC and put “Orange Farm” in the
memo line. Checks may be dropped off or mailed to the church. In 2021 we supported 152 students. CCRC has been contributing to Orange Farm schools since 2004. Thank you for you continued support.
Orange Farm is a township located approximately 45 km from Johannesburg in the
Gauteng Province of South Africa. It is the southernmost township of the City of
Johannesburg Metropolitan Municipality. Its name, a misnomer given that oranges
are grown in orchards instead of farms, has Dutch origins. It is one of the youngest
townships in South Africa, with the original inhabitants, laid-off farm workers,
taking up residency in 1988. Support for the population came slowly mostly from
people who were tenants at the larger township of Soweto.
